Oh man, now that I saw the newest news, now I just can't stop thinking about ways to mock that AIG "I'm thinking about butterflies" commercial that I mentioned in my last post. I'm sure anybody who's ever watched CNBC has caught it at least 87 times anyway though.

OK, here are my suggested alterations for other ways this ad could go down in the present circumstances.

Cute Precocious Child: "Daddy, what are you thinking about?"

Dad: "The butterfly effect. Have you heard of that one? That's when the beautiful butterfly flaps its wings... and THEN THERE'S A HURRICANE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD! AAGH!"

OK, another one:

Cute Precocious Child: "Daddy, what are you thinking about?"

Man: "Butterflies! BUTTERFLIES!! Please just leave me alone and let me keep thinking about butterflies!! AAGH!"

One last one:

Cute Precocious Child: "Daddy, what are you thinking about?"

Dad: "That's the biggest [blank] butterfly I've ever seen... Mothra! Run, take cover, hide!! NOOOO!" 

OK, I guess I should really find other stuff to blog about than AIG commercials that drove me crazy for months and months on end.

I like the one with the little kids talking all grown up like, if only the AIg people would act all grown up like.

Maybe than a last minute 85 billion bridge to nowhere would have not been needed to postpone armagedon.

I spent hours yesterday trying to get AIG and the freaking bank that convinced my deceased dad into an annuity to liquidate it and they gave me the run around.

For all the freaking commercials I won't forget how incompetent AIG and Huntington woods bank were when I needed them to act competently in minimizing a potential f up.

So it wasn't greedy people who caused the credit crisis, it was some darn butterfly flappin' its wings!

Yeah it is like the kids might know better. LOL. I'm sorry what you went through though, LordZ, that's terrible. Ugh.

FoolishChemist, yep, it sounds like "chaos theory" all right, haha.
