JAY-FRIGGIN'-Z outclassing DON SHULA in something football related. What a farce. :shake:

On a lighter note I LOVED the assembly-line machine dream. That was fantastic and...hell I got a little choked up. :)

I hate cashiers who talk too much.

I made the tragic mistake of not getting my SB grub on Friday. Put it off until after church. Mouth breathers were every where. I was the third person in the 20 item or less line at Wal-Mart. They have the chattiest cashiers. So I'm standing there and the cashier comes around from her station to hug the customer. I'm not making this up. Evidently they knew each other. I wanted to implement a 20 word or less line. They chatted as the cashier scanned each item. And whenever the clerk was talking, she quit moving. Then came the change counting. Half way through that process, the cashier froze every inch of her body, except her lips which were moving a mile a mintue. KILL. KILL. KILL. Then came the long goodbye. So good to see you. It's been so long. Turn, take two steps, turn back. We really need to get together. Call me. Okay, see you soon. GRRR.

Budweiser wins with crabby crawlers as Anheuser-Busch takes seven of top 10 Updated 2/5/2007 3:03 AM ET

By Bruce Horovitz, USA TODAYAnheuser-Busch continued its Super Bowl ad supremacy with a commercial that pure and simple made folks smile.For a record ninth-consecutive year, the beer giant won USA TODAY'S exclusive Ad Meter real-time consumer focus group ranking of Super Bowl commercials.

VIDEO: View the winning ad (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177774)

The winning ad featured a group of computer-generated crabs on the beach bowing (http://bowing) down at the altar of an ice chest filled with Budweiser. The red chest with two Buds for antennae looks like a giant crab which a crab army worships as the sun sets behind it. That's the kind of gentle, visual humor folks apparently wanted most this year.

CHART: See how all the ads ranked in Ad Meter (http://www.usatoday.com/money/advertising/admeter/2007-02-04-ad-meter-chart_x.htm)

Folks such as Doyle Wind. The retired bread salesman from Houston says he particularly objects to ads with violence in light of the Iraq war. "My next door neighbor has three sons over there right now," he says. "The way things are going now, we don't need to be reminded of all that. There's too much sadness now in the country. I guess that's why I enjoy the funny (ads) more."

The crab ad aired in the fourth quarter, becoming the first Ad Meter winner from that late in the game. A-B also walked off with four of the top five-rated commercials. And seven of the top 10.

The crustaceans' visual humor has another advantage after Sunday for the international brewer. Explains Bob Lachky, A-B creative chief, at A-B: 'We try to find something that will play around the world."

This year, the usual array of humorous Super Bowl commercials had to fight off surprising competition from ads that made folks feel warm and fuzzy. But in the end, viewers wanted to laugh.

"Humor gets me over anything not stupid humor," says Kathleen Stobie, a Silver Spring, Md., resident who is a coordinator with her county government.

By contrast, slapstick violence sometimes worked and sometimes didn't. Panelists loved the Bud Light ad about a guy who takes a Rock, Paper, Scissors game too literally and tosses a real rock to win a Bud Light. It finished third.

But they had little patience with another Bud Light ad featuring people who replace fist pumps with a series of face slaps.

VIDEO: Bud Light's Rock, Paper, Scissors ad (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177772) | Bud Light's face-slapping ad (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177777)

With U.S. beer sales growth flat particularly domestic brews A-B once again went all out to win the Super Bowl of advertising. It broadcast nine commercials over five minutes of multimillion-dollar air time.

But the unusually high ranking of a Doritos commercial about a Doritos-eating guy who is distracted by a cute girl the winner of an online contest for amateur videos may shake up the future of Super Bowl advertising.

VIDEO: Dorito's Car crash couple ad (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177763)

It's the first time a major marketer entrusted a Super Bowl spot fetching up to $2.6 million for 30 seconds of air time to a novice.

The fourth-place spot was filmed for $12 the price of the four bags of Doritos. Compare that with those it beat, several special effects-laden pro spots costing upwards of $1 million to make.

This also was the first year in which a majority of marketers clearly felt compelled to air commercials aimed at driving consumer to their websites. With ad rates at record levels and consumer eyes increasingly straying from the TV screen to the computer screen, marketers are looking to have their messages have traction beyond the big game. website names were attached to virtually every ad.

If ever there was a Super Bowl whose messages were directly aimed at the twentysomething and under crowd, this was it. That's why a Coke ad had the feel of a video game. It's why Chevrolet put young girls in a car in Manhattan that is swarmed by bare-chested guys. And it's why Nationwide chose Kevin Federline, Britney Spear's estranged hubby.

VIDEO: Coke's video game guy (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177768) | Chevrolet's car-washing guys (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177715) | Nationwide's K-Fed (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177744)

Call it the Anything For Attention Bowl. Many marketers took the low road for that attention. Snickers had two men kissing over a candy bar. A-B filled most of 30 seconds with face-slapping. And GoDaddy.com offered-up a sanitized version of a wet T-shirt contest.

VIDEO: Snickers' mechanics (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177723) | Bud Light face-slapping (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177777) | GoDaddy.com wet T-shirt (http://usatodayadmeter.feedroom.com/?fr_story=FEEDROOM177759)

It's as if some marketers momentarily forgot how turned-off Super Bowl viewers were three years ago by the attention-getting gambit of Janet Jackson's half-time wardrobe malfunction that bared one breast.

Apparently, just about anything that's edgy if not bizarre is getting Madison Avenue's green light, again.

But once again, automakers couldn't buy a break. Despite six ads from three car companies, none made the viewers' top 10.

Augustina Foglietta, an accountant from Houston, summed up the feeling of many about car commercials. "Hate 'em," she says. "I think they're boring, and there's just too many of 'em."

You should recognize the genius that is self-checkout. The only reason I am able to suffer through the morons that hang out in walmart all day is because I can check my own shit out and don't have to listen to a cashier talk about the sale on bananas or what the weather is like because the bitch has been inside all day.
