Stupid adverts on Cartoon Network and a boy that can read.

So far this week I have been ordered to...

Sponsor a dog "it's only a pound a week Mummy"
Book a holiday at Butlins "because kids go free Mummy"
Phone Ultralase "because then you won't have to wear glasses"
Sponsor a child "so they can have clean water and go to school"

:dozey:

I liked Bandura, he was actually understandable and practical :yes:

Yes he was. Gave us some excellent data and supportable hypotheses. Unfortunately, we still choose to ignore his findings. :sigh;

Maisie once asked me if I'd ever been hurt in an accident that wasn't my fault!

He doesn't actually watch much TV - mostly it's just in the background. It's the adverts that come on between Ben 10 episodes that he catches.

I didn't think he would, Dawn. Do you have a PBS system there? (No adverts)?

And all these adverts are on during the break of kids programmes?

Dawn
