Ring Around The Collar

Remember those commercials? It was for some laundry detergent. I don’t even remember which one, but the ads always showed a woman who was mortified, because her husbands shirts had a “ring around the collar”.

It was years before I even came close to understanding that. I still don’t really get it.

I have never once in my entire life seen anyone go up to another person and check their collar to see if it was clean. I used to wonder if there were places in the world where that actually happened. I figured it had to be a rich people thing.

But then I wondered if those rich people didn’t bath as often, or did really dirty work, because their collars were always getting really dirty, and needed special detergent to clean them.

I think a lot of people must have been thinking something like that. I haven’t seen a commercial like that in years.

Now they have those about the colors. You know the ones that imply that you have to use this “very special” detergent or all your colors will fade, and no one will like you anymore, because you look all drab and dingy.

Which if true, means you been hanging around the wrong people anyway.

AND!! AND! (Just making sure you are paying attention here) once your clothes are drab and dingy you have a most excellent excuse to go shopping!

So why worry about it? Seriously. Why???
