Eureeka! I found it! I found it!
Here it is everyone, read Lucy's post and tell me you're not laughing like a maniac.
I love the Korean Home Shopping Network thing they have on before "One Million Roses" and/or the evening news. My VCR catches it sometimes. I have seen things that made my stomach turn (biological things, let's leave it at that), but there is also this thing that looks like a giant-pumpkin-growing kit. Everyone is standing around admiring these big gourds and boxes of supplies.
"Also, how about that ad for the duct-cleaning company, or the one for the doctor that shows you all your sludge-filled organs? My favorite, though, is the one for Kokuho Rose rice, which features a little girl taking rice to her farmer dad in the fields--is he a rice farmer? That would be ironic. And wow, plain white rice; that'll hold you for a long day in the fields! The mother/wife has put seeds in a heart shape on top of the rice, and as the man looks at the food, her face appears and she smiles and waves from the heart. It also features one C. Lorenzo Pope, PhD., Rice Researcher and pith-helmet-wearer extraordinaire. I looked him up, out of curiosity, and he is at Calif State U, Chico, to this day! (even though the ad looks at least 20 years old.) Gosh, I love watching things whose language and/or underlying culture I don't understand. "

Ah, the rice commercial thread! I think of what Lucy said and laugh every time I see it (which is every day)! And every time I see that commercial I think I've suddenly gone blind, or my TV's out of focus.
hachiue, galacticchick, and jenny......you guys are just too funny. I think my sister is wondering why I'm laughing so hard in the room by myself. I think she tells people her sister is nuts.
You all do have a great sense of humor . I love reading your posts. It really makes me laugh when someone on this board has beautifully and humorously described my feelings exactly.
Awww, thanks guys! Y'all are so nice!
I guess there's just no redemption for ol' Eric. I cracked up at your "just hit puberty and is soooo exited" comment becuase I really do have a younger brother that refuses to shave the peach fuzz on his chiny-chin-chin because he thinks it looks cool.
My little brother was the same way, he was sure if he didn't shave every morning he'd look like a lumberjack!
