We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off
There have been many ridiculous ads featuring women in their underwear; not to mention ads for power boats where all the men are wearing khakis and polo shirts and all the women are wearing bikinis that look as if they are two sizes too small. So even though it's a childish attitude and I should be beyond payback, I was gleefully happy to see this ad of the photographer in his underwear.
I picture him lining up a family portrait: mom, dad, grandma, three kids, and the dog.
Photographer: "Okay everybody now just relax and look natural. Don't be nervous. Just smile. Pretend that I'm in my underwear.
Astute five year old: But you ARE in your underwear.
Just look at the size of that camera - will ya? Nothing phallic about that, no sir. It's not the size of your lens, it's how you use it.
Here's the best part, and again I know I'm too old to dissolve into giddy laughter when I say this but, it's the pouch collection.
This reminds me of a book I read recently - to my three year old - called Arthur's Underwear. Have I mentioned that H is obsessed with Arthur? That crazy aardvark. He wears briefs.
