Did anyone notice that they changed the Verizon commercial with "Mr Fear of Commitment?"  In it, this guy runs into an old girlfriend. When she berates him for committing to a phone company, he used to say, "Why buy the whole cow when I can only pay on the days I milk it."  Now they changed it to something like "Why not pay only when I use my phone?"
 
What was wrong with the cow thing?  It was quite clever, really. Did some Cow Defense Organization get their panties in a wad?

I started a thread on this very commercial while the old board was up.
Not even crickets commented.
The original commercial almost got me in trouble at home...I told MissyD that I had NEVER heard that line; I couldn't quit laughing...
"...if only I knew that one when I was young..."
Didn't even hear crickets in the bedroom, for a few days...

PS: Pa, thanks for your "Crickets" post over on the other forum. I was lurking there and noted that you said there were two sites, so I came back here and... voila!

I thought they changed it the last time I heard it!!  Wasn't sure, as I wasn't listening that closely.
 
I think, instead of looking like a deer caught in headlights when the ex-girlfriend responded, the guy should've looked glad to see her go.  Maybe he should've said "Yep.  That's me.  Mr. Fear of Commitment...to YOU!!!!"

Heh. I thought I'd just imagined that part.

This one bugs me rather a bit. Just ... her whole ... ah, icky ... ah, -ness. Like she's caught him red-handed in a truly dastardly act. (Sorry. I'm a bit wing-dang-doodled on Nyquil, and can't think of the right word. ... Smarmyishness?)

But there are two payoffs in it for me: That moment right after she says his name, and he looks at her as if to silently ask, "Sorry? Do I know you?" and that smug little smirk right as he's informing her that, no, he hasn't changed a bit. Everytime I see it, I blurt out, "And good for you!"

Clearly, I need to get out more.

Nyquil ROCKS.
Doesn't it, though? There was a week in February when I'd had so much of it, I was seeing shiny colours and fighting not to lick them.

OK. Clearly, I used the wrong made-up technical term. I suppose, then, that I'm too ... ah, frangipanied? Or ... mascarponed? Or ... frazzasnazzled?

I'm no longer 'committed' to Nyquil...why pay for the whole bottle, when I can simply pay for the dose I abuse?
Actually, I spent years basically addicted to it (I love the flavor; something, oh...say, kinda like anti-freeze)...years ago, my doctor informed me medical science was looking into damage Nyquil causes the prostate...haven't even looked at a bottle of it for probably 10 years...

Good thing you laid off the Nyquil. I am a nurse I have seen several people whose kidneys have gone kaput from hitting the Nyquil bottle a little too hard.
