Peace of Mind

Mark came down to NC for a visit this weekend. Over the course of that time, we happened to see a couple commercials that we were able to laugh about for the better part of a day.

The first of these commercials was one that I've actually seen before. It was for a law firm that specializes in divorce proceedings. The ad makes it sound like divorce shouldn't be a miserable experience. You almost expect them to say something like, "Don't think of divorce as you destroying the lives of your wife and children. Come see us and we'll make your divorce more enjoyable than your wedding day." Should it really be that easy?

The other commercial was for some sort of clinic that specializes in genetic testing. I'm sure they test for genetic disorders and things of that nature. But the thing that most caught my attention were the huge bold letters spelling out "Peace of Mind Paternity Tests!" This should be turned into some kind of SNL sketch.

Ever wonder if your 16 year old daughter is really yours? Ever wonder why your son stands a foot taller than anyone in your family? Well wonder no more with our quick and painless paternity tests. Come see us and have the peace of mind you deserve.
