Sarcasm, satire and cartoons

Pure Michigan.Arrrrgh

Written By: Sy - Sep• 12•11

OK, enough with the  Pure Michigan.org radio commercials. If you haven’t heard them, then let me tell you that they are excruciating sappy.

From the first piano note that just oozes chick-flick type sentimentality to the announcer’s doctor style bedside manner voice that is so sickeningly soothing, that I just know the next words out of his mouth are going to be, “I’m sorry to have to tell you the bad news, sir, but you have cancer,” that I can’t change the channel fast enough.

Now if you think I’m over reacting you might be right. All I know is that either the sound of that first note or the announcer’s voice almost makes me double over in pain.

I understand that such reactions are supposed to be ingrained in us since the time we were infants when different sounds we were exposed to elicited different muscle responses in our deveoping bodies and helped to form our personalities.

Now I don’t know what happened to me when I was an infant, but after hearing this commercial the only thought I have about Mich is that I don’t even want to think about going there.
