Old fart or social crusader? Your thoughts, por favor.

I think I have mentioned before that this blogging stuff is very cathartic….allows you to get stuff off your chest by having a bit of a rant about things. It’s actually pretty amazing how much better you feel afterwards…like you have somehow made a difference. Delusions of grandeur? Definitely. Do I care? Not a jot. 🙂

My latest target is the Coon cheese ad where the bloke steals his mate’s cheese toastie, waxes lyrical about how nice it is and what kind of wine / condiment it would go with, and then slaps his mate’s face for the privilege. All the while the female flatmate is finding this is all quite amusing. It just doesn’t sit right with me…for all sorts of reasons…but the main one is that the message seems to be ‘Eat Coon cheese and you’ll turn into an arshole’. Surely that’s not what the advertiser were going for?

So, old fart or social crusader? Your thoughts, if you please.  🙂
