BTW, these are some of the top ranked Super Bowl commercials.

Do you know if you type SuperBowl in Microsoft Outlook that spellcheck offers a correction "superb owl". :rofl:

Of course, this reminds me of the old joke about college and university deans: herding faculty is like herding cats. :rofl:

I don't get it. What does e-business have to do with herding cats? I don't see how they can say "this is what we do", it seems blatantly stupid to me.

OK possible loss of humour, multiple signs of seriousness:quick let's get him into surgery for an emergency sense of humour bypass; nurse: 30 minutes of Monty Python titrated with alcahol and introduce a tube of pringles stat. :biggrin: :wink:

Although I have to agree with cristo, I don't see the connection.

Dr we have a code banana.....

It's meant to be absurd, why are the English and a few other Europeans on this planet and maybe the Canadians the only people capable of understanding absurd for the sake of it? Something doesn't have to make sense to be funny, this isn't Sienfeld :biggrin:

At least you laughed there's hope for you yet :tongue:

Dr we have a pulse, keep him on a monitor for five days, and make sure it has youtube, you know something amusing. phew that was a close call, good work team.

:smile:

I thought this was pretty funny -

EDS - Airplanes - "You never know what you gonna come across up here -- Canadian geese, mallards . . . . owls." :rofl:

Running with Squirrels - Hey, squirrels can be vicious. Don't underestimate them because of their size. Squirrel fangs may be small, but they are sharp. :biggrin:

As for the Lamb streaker - I think Moonbear will appreciate it. She's probably seen a few. :biggrin:

Are those all done by the same ad firm? They all look like variations on the same theme.

I like the lamb streaker best. That was hilarious! :rofl: "We didn't need to see that." :rofl:

Okay, since verty and ddmcircles need some help here...they're SuperBowl commercials. It's a form of entertainment all by itself. The point is to make the commercial funny enough that you stay to watch it and find out the product at the end rather than walk away to get another beer or refill the chip bowl. Some people even watch TV for the commercials instead of the game on that day. :biggrin:

The beer is the key . . . don't try to understand the commercial - just appreciate it.

Thanks for finding the airplane one Astronuc!! :rofl:

Geez verty sounds like a lost cause. :bugeye:

Moonbear's right, the Super Bowl commercials are famous and a lot of people tune in just to see the ads.

Here are two more.

I want to have this guys problem.

Doctor, we have another one! He's lost all sensation in the sarcasm region. He needs 24 hours of continous treatment with Comedy Central.
Blah, you better not experience my sarcasm, believe me. :devil: :tongue2:

This is considered by many pros to be the best commercial ever made.

I must admit, that advert is quite surprising. It seems so corny initially but then you see that it was supposed to look corny. I think it's really good.

I remember that one.

I however bought a Zenith (for about $2000) with an 8088 microprocessor (320 kB RAM which I upgraded to 640 kB, and later added a 8087 math coprocessor) with two floppy drives (360 kB). :rolleyes: :rofl:

Our department was split between those who proferred Macs and those using Wintel systems. Most of us eventually migrated to Macs, and we had parallel Mac and Sun networks.

What a brutal, violent commercial, Evo. But funny!

"Herding cats" is one of my all-time favourites. And it makes perfect sense to me on top of being hilarious.
