Happy Mother's Day-Now Get Me a Sandwich!

REALLY?!! No, I mean, REALLY?!! This is the ad Proctor and Gamble chose to run for Mother's Day? Let's see if I can decipher the message(s) in this one:
  • "I don't care if you have patients lined up for surgery, dammit, I want a sandwich!"
  • "Yeah, you do a great job keeping that biohazard research lab spic n span, but would it kill you to wipe up the bathroom more often, woman?"
  • "Well, just tell the friggin' judge that you hafta get home and cook dinner cuz the in-laws are coming over!"
  • "Like the cure for cancer can't wait one more day. I need you here to let the cable guy in!"
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there, whether you work at home, out of home, or both. And to the advertisers who think it's still 1950, a big Mother's Day bouquet of Fuck Off from me!


  1. I'd like to say calm down, but that's what my kids tell me when I go off on a rant like this. I am appalled that Mr.clean did that, it's time to switch to Noname brand in this house. You go girl, I'm sure you have more in there. Loved this!

  2. I'm going to assume you're telling me happy mother's day. My license plate says "Super Mom." And I make a lot of sandwiches, though none are for me.

    But, seriously, Happy Mother's Day to you, Mouse.

  3. LoL ! The whole time I'm reading your post I can feel my head going flat so I can better balance that tray on my head to serve hubby his drinks. Next thing ya know, I'll lose my voice and get bigger boobs and own a Bar!..Wasn't that supposed to be the purfect woman according to that old joke?...HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to you too sweetPea!

  4. Omg. I thought that ad was a joke! I'm stunned.

    I'm with you...Happy Mother's Day to you, and fuck off to them!!!

  5. I try to stay away from everything Proctor and Gamble LOL...have a good one too :)

  6. You are soooooooo funny sometimes my friend and always enjoyable. Have a wonderful & Happy Mother's Day.

  7. I totally identify with where you are. My husband does this all the time, though he is supposedly liberated. "Where's my dinner?" when I am up to my elbows in one of 'our' projects. Ha.


Rant with me. Come on, you know you want to!
