SOMETHING needs to be DONE...

...about the muscleman ads. If the ads' subject has anything to do w/what we as TBers are looking at(between basses for metal and telling people search), then I say we are NOT browsing for t-shirts & leggings like we should. That is all.

I was thinking the same thing. The t-shirt ads are ok, just nsfw sometimes. The muscle ads are hilarious.

How about that ad for the T-shirt? Girl is laying down with dazed look and t-shirt says "I used to care, but I take a pill for that now"

Somehow that one stirs something within me. I think it's her very inviting stoned gaze that does it for me.

How about the girl who has a T-shirt that says, "I pooped today". TMI.

If you had a young kid, you would get it.

I remember, when my kids were learning, being at a gig. During break I was in one stall and in the next stall someone pinched off a loaf and my Daddy reflexes kicked in and I said good job before I could help myself.

No doubt - that is hilarious. At least your heart was in the right spot. You can't fault a fellow for that.

I run Adblock plus. It's disabled on TB. I still don't see ads, because Ghostery blocks Google spyware. ( +1, adsense, analytics)

I'm not against ads on TB, if they're not animated, and don't involve spyware.

As Google is tracking you all over the web, I presume the ads you see may not match what other TB membe5rs see.
