3 a.m. Economy Ads

Ad-rageous! It's 3 a.m. Everywhere!

Well I'm not good at figuring out the chronological math as it pertains to time zones, but is it possible that its always 3:00am somewhere.

I am more disturbed by the fact that the leader of the free world can't get a decent night's sleep!

I preferred when Sunjaya appeared on Fox Five New York to do the "It's 10pm, do you know where your children are?"

It's 3am, I must be lonely....or completely uncreative and making unimaginative campaign commercials.
