    If we have reached a point in Christmas advertising where men Flopping their balls is cute, God help us.

    EDIT: I pushed the wrong damn button in the poll. Take one off yes and put it in no.

    And yet if women were doing it, it'd be cute. And don't you lie!

    Edit: I have to admit I never thought of it the way you are, though.

    I don't really understand why that's an inherent problem. Sure, political correctness can go too far, and it shouldn't be mandatory -- but don't you see that by commenting on every instance of there being a black man on your TV screen, you're the one fueling all this?

    You're fanning the flames by ignoring it.

    Ignoring what? The guy's race? How does that affect the commercial in any way?

    Give it a rest. That whole "minority, PC, Libbos" thing from you is beyond trite and boring.
