Moisturizing My Situation

So, has anyone else seen the new Pro Activ commercial featuring P. Diddy? Remember the days when Pro Activ was only being hawked by Judith Light? Now everyone from Vanessa Williams to Jessica Simpson is getting in on the deal. Anyway, P. Diddy's commercial included some pretty funny quotes, such as "I'll be straight up: I didn't want no bumps on my face."

Who can argue with that? No one really wants bumps on their face and I appreciate his honesty in being "straight up" with me.

Next he advocated Pro Activ because he was "moisturizing my situation. I need it to help preserve the sexy." Now I have no earthly idea why a "situation" might need to be moisturized. I don't know what situation would cause for moisturization on a dire level other than a drought, but that's just me. However, I think we can all relate to wanting to "preserve the sexy." My sexy needs a lot of attention for its preservation, but I think that outcome is well worth it.

Lastly, the most irritating thing was the lack of correct pronunciation. This man is a self-proclaimed media mogul and yet he can't seem to pronounce the "th" on the end of thing. Here's an example: "Pro Activ helped smoov it out. It's worf a try." If this was a lisp or some sort of speech impediment, I'd let it go. But I'm fairly certain the affectation is concocted to provide some sort of image.

However, isn't the tough yet pampered image gone by now? Aren't we back around to the grunge days when no one was using hair product or deodorant to prove their devotion to their music?

I gotta go preserve my sexy.

Ashley sounds like a hick now that she's lived here for a couple years; and this is coming from someone who was raised here.

Chef- I'm fairly certain the affectation is concocted to provide some sort of image.

Gotcha, Ash!

Ashley said...

Thank you both so very much. And I just need a little time up north to get my voice trained to stop doing that damn drawl. It's just contagious, dammit. AND IT'S NOT THAT BAD!

Chef said...

It's really not so bad. I just wanted to hassle her in some type of public forum.

On that note, will someone please tell me some embarressing stories involving her?! I already heard the one about being glued to a toilet seat, so you'll have to do better than that.

Please send all stories to Chef381@yahoo. My thanks in advance!

Oh, dude. Ask and you shall receive. What I have isn't so much a story, but it's worth a thousand words.

Ashley said...

I think we all need to remember that anything you tell him can be reciprocated onto you. I have dirt too, people.

Oh and where has Chimps of Destiny gone to?

swampette said...

I'm all about showing rather than telling. But don't worry, it's not really bad, just really hilarious.

I deleted Chimps of Destiny. I was bored with it.

Ashley said...

Damn! I loved Chimps of Destiny. I love hearing other people bitch. It's a good release. May the chimps rest in peace.

Shera, Princess of Power said...

Where, oh WHERE will I go for Chimps of Consequence now that you have rudely taken them from me, cruel Swampette?

I hear that a certain chef received a care package of glamour shots from from a nice swampy creature. She just sent them to me too. Seems these things are mad circulating around here. Wow, that pout at age, what, 14??!!
