Five Dollar Foot Long

I think that these are some of the most obnoxious commercials on the planet. This song has been in my head for the better part of the week. Of course, the advertising execs are cheering because, Hey! That's the point! Me? I'm weeping.



*****
On Monday after school HB#2 took a break from homework to use the bathroom. The kid is notorious for taking his sweet time in there, but after a while I called in to him to see if everything was *ahem* coming out ok. He walked out of the bathroom, with his pants at his ankles and exclaimed, "Wow, Mom! I really need a shower after that one!"

Uh, thanks, kid, for the visual, but go right ahead!

So after dropping his clothes by the laundry room he headed upstairs. Right about then, our friend that has been painting our house outside, and doing a few other things inside, came in to use the restroom and finish a project upstairs. The light bulb went off in my head and I shouted upstairs to #2 "Did you flush the toilet?" Oh my. No, he hadn't. "Sorry, P!"

(Luckily he has a son the same age as my boys.) He just laughed, but omg I was mortified.

*****

Later that evening Headless Dad called to talk to the boys. (Yes, he's been out of town all this week too, and yes, he took most of my sanity with him.) I overheard #2 saying this to his dad: "Dad! I had a Five Dollar Foot Long today!" {what I'm guessing HD said was something like "Huh?" because he knows that I hate Subway...} "No, Dad. My poop was a Five Dollar Foot Long!"

*****

I'll never hear that commercial the same way again, and I'm guessing, neither will you. You're welcome.

Oh thanks! Now I won't hear it the same way either. That is so funny what he said, men and their shits! I don't like their new commercials at all. But I must say that I love a veggie subway sandwich.

I purposely didn't watch the video because I only just got that song out of my head.

Every time we have company now, I go around and flush all the toilets. I finally learned my lesson after my friends finding my son's floaters each time they visited.

love love love it. How old is he? (please don't say 3. Or 17.)

Anyway, thank you for also hating my most-hated commercial of the year. Every time I see those construction workers, I want to stick needles in my eyes.

I'm not familiar with that commercial, but I may never be able to eat at Subway again thanks to the visual now stuck in my head...

I'm LMAO over here!

What is it about boys and not flushing?! Are they proud of it?! Would they mount it on the wall if you'd let them?! Sheesh!

Oh dear....

Why is it that potty humor never loses its attractiveness to boys of any age?
