What I Laugh At While Driving Around

I mean when I am not laughing at how stupid some of the conservative response to the passing of the health bill is...

What I am talking about is the wonderful radio advertisements for the Duluth Trading Company. This is a company that makes, among other things, work clothing. Work clothing that makes those old Sears "Toughskin Jeans" seem like chiffon...

Their website has all the links to their TV and radio spots, but I think the radio ads are just funny as hell. Here are my favorites:







Or maybe this is just because I love guy humor?

  5. Hilarious.

    You know, to be honest, there is so much confusion about what the health care bill says and doesn't say, I can understand why people are assuming. So far, all I have heard are complaints from the financially secure and small business owners, so that's what I commented on in my last post.

    It's good to see you're still doing well!!!

  7. BeckEye, trust me, when you have to go "Johnny Bench", ball room jeans are more awesome than Yanni & Kenny G. in an knife fight. Plus a MONKEY!

  10. I have no idea why I get these catalogues, and I always wondered WTF. Most trade guys I know are too frugal to spend that kind of money on work clothes, so I always figured it was a catalogue for doctors or accountants who wanted to look like they knew their ass from a chamfer bit.

  11. I think Scope should write slogans for Duluth Trading.
