Would Prefer Fiction

There was a commercial on The Simpsons tonight that shows a couple enjoying their lifestyle. They were racking up debts and then the husband fell over dead from a heart attack. Leaving the wife with no life insurance. And his family was homeless. It was a parody of a lot of commericals that are actually on TV right now. My husband came in to tell me about it because he just thought it was so funny.

He forgot about Gladys. And how she died of a heart attack. With no life insurance.

Fortunately, her husband and baby are not homeless. And they were smart about money so the only debt they had was their house so he should be just fine.

I just can't see the humor in it, even though I am sure The Simpsons did it perfectly.

Its still a little too raw.
