Advertising Doesn't Pay

Most TV adverts are a waste of time
But useful when you need a cup of tea,
You can turn the sound down and watch them mime,
Most TV adverts are a waste of time.
I'll never buy the things they show but I'm
Most grateful how the break enables me,
Most TV adverts are a waste of time
But useful when you need a cup of tea.

    So. Very. True. LOL. It's like "OH, SNACK TIME"! So, if anything, ads allow me to get off my seat and take a stretch. :) Well done here, Elisabeth!

    It's certainly what happens in this house. I wonder if advertisers realise how we behave during these promotions. Thanx. Elisabeth.
