Forgive me for finding this so funny

Apparently this ad has been on the air for months, but I saw it myself for the first time the other night. I laughed so hard I cried:

I'm sure some little people and their friends are offended, but at least the ones on the screen got paid.

I don't know what's worse: that this reminds me of the film The Terror of Tiny Town, or that I keep thinking about Buddy Hackett's routine about his first words.

What's next, "Brokeback Mountain Burgers?"

As founder of S.H.R.I.M.P.S. (Short Humans Representing Insecure Minute Persons in Society), I can happily tell you that this promotion was on the short list of acceptable ads employing persons of a smallish stature. The opportunity to be employed based exclusively on physical characteristics is an honor shared by very few. So for "Those of us who like to jive, and measure under five-foot-five," this simply represents another of the many advantages of being short. And sweet.

Every time my maltipoo sees this ad she begs to run with the cattle. Finally a round-up she can join in.

If it was a conservative, factual statement about a liberal proposal, you would all be up in arms.

Great! Now the chorus is stuck in my head again.

and it would be even funnier if they had black face on.

Thanks for that cutting-edge anonymous troll dropping, from your OHSU computer at Your first since I banned you last summer! And alas, your last, once again.

No one in the ad is masquerading as anything other than what he is, and so the blackface reference is badly misplaced.

See ya.

The Wizard of Oz was done in black face. it was called The Wiz.

Don't Crush that Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers!
