Brain Drain #29


Finally, something new!

It has been too long since I’ve written any dribble for this humor site…and even longer since I’ve posted a “Brain Drain.”

For those of you who are unfamiliar, “Brain Drain” is simply a post where I pull the plug on my cerebral cortex and empty out what has been a bug in my craw.

Ready?  Let’s get started…


First, how about a few tv commercials I am fed up with.


eHarmony.  Pimple popper.  Get who gets you.

A nasty blemish.


The spot opens with a dude looking in a mirror at a huge zit on his shoulder.

Next his eHarmony match beckons him over so she can zap it with joy.


Quite the couple.

True love ensues afterward as he lays back into her blood, pus & all.  I’ve never been able to watch the full ad as I am grossed out and must look away before Mount Scapula erupts.

Who knew skin blemishes could attract a love interest!

If that were true- I could of been the Brad Pitt of backne.  The king of Phisoderm.  The crown prince of Clearasil.

Just think if the dude had a cold sore he might have hooked up with a super model.

Good luck to these to young lovers.  Keep eating greasy pizza, I guess.

Just plain dumb.

This commercial campaign debuted last February during the Super Bowl and is still running to this day.  (Talk about milking a train wreck.)

Starring Dan Levy (“Schitt’s Creek”) and SNL’s Heidi Gardner, these ads leave me dazed & confused as they are painful to watch.


I don’t understand them.  I see no value in them.  And there is no way in hell they would motivate anyone to visit

In other words, a big campaign costing big bucks…and has the fizz of a three-day old open can of Mt. Dew.



Could someone help Jason Momoa with his T-Mobile cable?  The’ve been running the same commercial with Donald Faison & Zach Braff for-EVER!  I’d do a back-flip just to see a new ad.


Lastly, a couple of sleep products…

Side-sleepers (like me) take note–your shoulder pain is no more with this bed-hog contraption!…

Need an airport guy with flashlights to guide me in!


You already share a bed with your partner…your children…and your pet, so now you gotta find room this THING?

What the hell–do I sleep with it or Greco-Roman wrestle it?

It looks like something advertised in the back of an adult magazine.


What do you do for an itch?



Yep, no shoulder pain for this guy.

But how do I de-tach when I have to pee at night?

I’d have to read the instructions how to go back to sleep.

In case of a flood, can it be used as a flotation device?

Fighter pilots aren’t this secure for combat.


Another new product for better sleep…Mouth tape

It’s a joke, right?


Yes, I kid you not.  People are taping their mouths shut to reduce snoring, allergies & bad breath (My breath is so bad you’d have to spot-weld my mouth shut) by forcing themselves to breathe through their nose.

I tried this once using double-faced tape.  When I rolled over my face stuck to the pillow and I nearly suffocated!

I just don’t know about this mouth tape–I think I would dream of being held hostage.  I couldn’t talk in my sleep.  My nose is always stuffy.  Plus, with your mouth taped how can you eat all the spiders that supposedly crawl into your mouth in a lifetime?

What else will they come up with to waste our money on?

That’s all I have for Brain Drain #29. (Aren’t you glad you missed the previous 28?  (Actually they are available by using the search feature!)

Thanks for visiting My Odd Sock.

Till next time.

    1. Tina,
      Thank you for reading and your very kind comment. Your payment will be forwarded in two-three business days. My best to you!

  1. I had to Google the eHarmony pimple popper commercial because I have never seen it, and I watch a lot of television. I guess Governor DeSantis has banned it from showing in the state of Florida.

    How can you forget the “Jardiance Commercial”? Why did they replace the “Jardiance Lady”, the original wasn’t perky enough? Do people with diabetes spontaneously break into a choreographed song and dance because they are happy they have diabetes? I think not. My sister is a diabetic, and I have never seen her singing and dancing about how happy she is to be a diabetic. It should be a minor crime to sing an earworm jingle about a diabetes drug. I confess, I know all the words.

  2. Margaret,
    Go girl! You are on fire this fine day!
    (I can tolerate this new Jardiance commercial better than the previous one. Although I must say the heavyset actor in the copier scene needs a man bra–that guy is stacked.
    Thanks for your VERY funny comment!
