The Myrbetriq Bladder Commercial…


I, for one, worry about my internal organs becoming uppity, detaching themselves from the collective of my body, and leading me around by the hand with clear designs of influencing my behavior.  A case in point is the anthropomorphic bladder in a Myrbetriq commercial for overactive bladder depicted as kind of an apple-shaped thing with overly-large and expressive eyes.  It’s a disquieting mixture of creepy and cute, a kind of bizarre but unique pet which is dragging its owner off to the bathroom at frequent and inconvenient intervals.  We all know what to do about the problem; see a doctor, and medicate the little bastard!

Now there are undeniably occasions when it might prove advantageous to have an auxiliary bladder, especially if you could somehow wirelessly transmit surplus urine to it to handle those times of overload, say when you’ve downed several cups of coffee or glasses of cola.  Diuretics can be so inconvenient, and no one wants to traipse off to the bathroom any more often than you have to.  But people might talk if you waltzed about with your internal organs visible, or at least diagnose you with an active mental illness for presuming that such was possible.  “My bladder is giving me fits.  What do you mean, you can’t see him?!”

I suppose that there might be anthropomorphic organ pets even worse than an overactive bladder; a spastic colon, for example.  But for the time being, I’ll just resolve to keep my internal organs all wrapped up in myself, where they properly belong.  I don’t care if they don’t like it…and I don’t want to hear their organ recitals, either…ahahahaha!

    What I don’t like to hear is yuppie vegetarians over-using the slang term “vegan.” As far as I’m permanently concerned, “Vegan” refers strictly to something (or someone) from the Vega star system in outer space! If yuppie vegetarians insist on calling themselves by some slang abbreviation, why not try “herbies?”

    As in, short for “herbivores.”

    FYI (@ the above demographic): I had a cheeseburger, with a chicken soup chaser, for lunch, today. And it was MMMM! MMMM! GOOD! 😛

      You can be a Campbell’s kid, but hopefully without the rosy apple cheeks…

        I was never much good at botany. But, I think one’s facial cheeks can be as white as apple blossoms or red as rose petals. Not both, though. ::?

          I always thought that the graphics for those “Campbell’s Kids” as seen in the early ads looked like some kind of genetically-engineered clones, raised in a Caucasian valley…

    “Caucasian Valley.”

    Sounds like one of those gated communities for the super rich in Los Angeles. 😉
