    But then her hands will get old because they’re not soaking in Palmolive every day.  You just can’t win.

    You should see how many pantsuits I’ve made since we got a dishwasher.

    uhm.. not to be a Debby Downer, but that’s not my take-away from this ad…

    “What a drag it is getting old”

    Sure she will. She’ll just get old making sandwiches, instead of washing dishes. That’s why you only lease them, so you can trade up to newer models as they come out.

    Dixie Cups: a fine product of the Koch brothers.

    20 glasses a day?  With her husband at work and the children at school (or too young to drink from glass)?

    I don’t think it’s the liquid on the outside of the glasses making her prematurely old.

    Having said that, if “living a little” means sewing a pantsuit, drinking a lot is probably the correct response.

      Jeez, why not just make them dress in drag and worship a picture of Mao while holding them at gunpoint? You’re undermining the very foundation of civilization.

    Any time saved in not washing those glasses is just spent getting up and refilling that tiny little 3 oz paper cup’s two sips-worth of beverage.
