It's Like We're Not Supposed to Be Driving Drunk or Something


Hey, great use of our tax dollars, assholes at the Department of Transportation. For all the millions you spend producing these pointless ads telling us that police arrest people for drunk driving then spending outsize dollars to air 600 of them an hour, we could possibly hire more officers to catch people. I don't know.

Why don't you just enter into an agreement wherein the game announcers mention each player who's been arrested for a DUI or DWI? "There's Cato June with the good open field tackle. By the way, he got popped for a DUI a few months ago. What a dipshit." If authorities are willing to prosecute celebrities for something, we citizens know it's a serious crime. Anything to not have to see these goddamn ads every break.

Seriously - The only thing worse than those DUI ads are the Small Step to Get Healthy ads that have d-bags tripping over body parts of the recently obese in supermarkets and such. I've written the Department of Health and Human Services demanding my share of the tax money it took to produce those ads ($0.67) sent back to me and they sent me a letter back telling me to take a small step to fuck myself. Damn the man...

Ever notice how the beverage in the cab in that commercial reflects the stereotype of the driver?

Mulleted redneck in truck --> beer
FatShit Republican in sportscar --> martini
Metrosexual yuppie --> Shiraz

Don't fuck with Cato, he's from Anacostia.

I just realized tonite that those were olives floating in his martini.

Yea, so I've been wasted every time I've seen those commercials and not really paid attention, so what?

It only takes one incident close to you in life and you'll never drive drunk again. Really puts a downer on it.

Working today as well. I yearn for the days when journalists were allowed to be conspicuously drunk on the job.

It's becoming the norm: the federal government taking money from you to create ads to tell you how to live your life.
