Don’t I know it

TV ads work on kids.

Well, duh! Thanks for spending money to do the research to reconfirm what we already know! Could've saved a bunch of money just asking us mommies!

Which is why I've banned Rae from morning telly and moved her TV hour to afternoons when the ads become less.

All those endless Barbie, My Little Pony, MyScene, Playdough commercials. Everytime she sees one, she goes, "IwantIwantIwant!"

Here are other similarly silly researches:

1. Vegans/vegetarians tend to be slimmer than meat-eaters. Have you ever seen a fat vegetarian? Tsk.
2. Creativity determines sexual success. Which librarian do you know is a womaniser?
3. Commitment to marriage, emotional engagement key to wives' happiness. Hullo? Haven't you been listening for the last ten thousand years?
4. Unwed mothers have difficulty finding 'good' husbands. You take what you can get. Sad but already true!
5. Parental conflict can affect school performance. Next thing they'll tell you is that parent-child conflicts affect school performance.  

Don't you just love EurekAlert? I am so subscribing this.
