You know, here I was on Saturday morning, sitting around and rocking out, minding my own business as I contemplated some of the news – both behind the scenes and not – that was cluttering my mind: The veritable bloodbath that appears set to take place in Carroll and Frederick Counties over their respective GOP Central Committees votes for replacements as delegate; the fact that the Legislative Black Caucus wrote Governor Hogan a letter lambasting him for cutting education – which, unfortunately, the Governor did not do; …and, of course, that ridiculous issue that’s been sucking up everyone’s attention lately, Deflate-Gate, in which the NFL’s New England Patriots are alleged to have purposefully deflated 11 out of 12 footballs for their AFC Championship game blow out of the Indy Colts, which the Patriots only won by the close score of 45-7.
Anyway, as I’m running these various “issues” through my head and, having finished the first draft of my 3rd novel and therefore, having some time to write about things other than horror-fiction, I’m concerning myself with which of these issues, if any, merited enough worth for me to write about…when suddenly, I decided to check my email.
And what, to my wondering eyes, should appear? An email from a friend, the first line of which reads:
“I am tired of the pornographic ads on Red Maryland (the website).”
This is followed by the second line, which reads:
“I do not expect to see pictures of penises when I visit Red Maryland.”
This friend of mine was also kind enough to forward a picture of what had piqued his/her disgust. Do NOT read any further, unless you don’t care whether you see “it.” If you don’t care or do want to see “it,” the “it” is in the lower photographs in this cluster of ads…
(Can’t get it up? See Red Maryland for details on how to change THAT!)
Isn’t that special?
Well, with THAT in mind, it makes me wonder just what type of readership the apparently very aptly nick-named “Li’l Guy” and Red Maryland’s Dictator in Chief, or is that “Chef,” Kim Greg Kline, are trying to appeal to.
Is Red Maryland’s target audience men between the ages of 40 and death who are having trouble getting things “revved up?”
It certainly seems that way, considering that’s the type of ads they’re putting out there for their readers to see. That and ads about how to boost testosterone…
And, for the record, I have no problem with advertising for erectile dysfunction or anything else for that matter. It’s just that, what in the Hell is that type of ad doing on what is allegedly a conservative-political website? And, a bit of TMI for y’all: I have high blood pressure and an enlarged heart, so ED is one of the last things I have to worry about.
But, that doesn’t mean I have anything against anyone who suffers from ED. I do not mock or make light of them. In fact, consider this blog posting a matter of me reaching out to them in an effort to get them some help through Red Maryland.
Now, I also have to wonder if I should send Red Maryland a bill for all of the views this post will give to their site.
You go, Li’l Guy and Greg Kim Kline: Keep it up!
