I like the idea of actors not being able to portray doctors when selling something. Then again, I've seen commercials where they never actaully say "I'm a doctor" but hey have on lab coats and are in a doctor's office so i guess you are supposed to come to your own conclusion. Sneaky.

Hypno, I agree with you on all points, especially the overdue books, except for the fuzzy briefs Santa. You can have him. Sounds like a toy doll made by Mattel, Fuzzy Briefs Santa.

I know library fines seem trivial to most but those books are expensive and they add up when they come up missing.LMAO! Maybe her deceased husband has strong lasting sentiments. I think it would give me some added piece of mind if real Dr. backed pharmaceuticals on advertisements. That's sad about the shark attacks but Australia is notorious for high shark population and attacks. You're really taking a risk going into the water. Honey as long as it's one of those sexy Santa’s with the red fuzzy briefs and hat they can fall on top of me anytime of the year.

The shark story is sort of ironic. You never know what the consequences of your actions will be. My sister lives in Sydney near the beach where one of those people got their hand bitten off. I wouldn't go swimming for a while if I were her...
