Ok, that was just weird ...

TV commercial...romantic, guy and gal in canoe on the water ... suddenly between their feet the boat springs a leak.

He starts to get flustered, she confidently reaches over and pulls a Tampax out of her purse and, insert/plunge, plugs up the leak.

Obviously, Dar, it means, "Buy our tampons if you're concerned both about feminine hygiene and boating safety."

You just saw that? It has been on for awhile. I find it disgusting.

But then, so is most of TV...;-)

- It would have been so much more "Pink" if the guy would have pulled out the tampon...

Disgusting? Not at all. At least it doesn't have that mysterious blue liquid that seems to be a staple of all tampon commercials. I think the general advertising concept here is, "well, it can soak up a lake's worth of liquid, so..."
