Okay, my head is going to explode

Tonight I saw a commercial I hadn't seen before. It's a bunch of guys sitting around playing guitars, singing a song. I didn't pay much attention to the words (I heard something about being tired of the road, ready to get home), but it was set to the tune of "Viva Las Vegas." Which is one of THE coolest songs ever, and I don't think anyone will dispute that.

Then I heard the chorus, you know, the "Vivaaaa, Las Vegas!" part. But in the commercial, it was "Vivaaaa, Viagra!"

I seriously wanted to hurl. I found it on YouTube (here) and heard all the words. Something about having a honey, not wanting to stray, blah blah blah. I don't care. All I care about is that they took a great song and made it about erectile dysfunction. Damn you, Viagra marketing people. How can you sleep at night? Augh, I can't stand it!

I love your blog, Beth!  I hope you don't mind me snooping around.

I can hear you say this stuff just the way you write it.
I'm very blessed to have been able to meet you and Ken.

Karen, thanks for the comment! Of course, I don't mind you reading this--that's what it's here for, to keep in touch with family and friends. I hope we keep you and Doug in the latter category for a long time. :)
