Hot Chicks Dig Smart Men Insult of the Month

Saturday, January 10, 2009
Last night the Smart Man and I were watching a little T.V. (Two and a Half Men reruns), and a commercial kept coming up for the sanitary pads Always.

In this commercial, the announcer was proclaiming the pads were "über absorbent!"

After watching this affront to good taste for about the sixth time, I made the comment that commercials for feminine hygiene products, birth control and erectile dysfunction medication should be forbidden from using popular or slang language. The Smart Man said they should just call the product "The Über Pad" and be done with it.

Later in the evening, I was telling the Smart Man about a less than sharp student in my current DU class. The student in question believes the class forum is the appropriate place to proselytize about his religious belief. The Smart Man's reaction was to exclaim, "He's an Über Pad!"

Cue gales of laughter.

Why, yes. I am easily amused. And the Smart Man cracks me up.

So Über Pad is our new insult here at Hot Chicks Dig Smart Men. Use it in good health.

I was going to suggest that the insult of the month was actually David Mamet's comment about Jeremy Piven leaving show business, but I see that that was last month, so I'll concede this month's honors to the Smart Man.


(In case you missed it: in December, Piven abruptly walked out of a role in the Broadway show Speed The Plow, claiming he was sick from mercury poisoning from, I believe he said, bad sushi.

Plow author David Mamet responded to Piven's announcement by saying, "I talked to Jeremy on the phone, and he told me that he discovered that he had a very high level of mercury. So my understanding is that he is leaving show business to pursue a career as a thermometer."

Mamet 1, Piven 0.)
