"New and Improved!" Somebody kill me!

People usually do not give a damn on catchy quotes of advertisements, do they? We are well aware of Nike's Just Do It, M&M's Melt In Your Mouth, Not In Your Hand, just to name a couple. Catchy? Yes. That's the whole purpose of adertisement, duh! But claiming your product/service to be "New And Improved" has proven something, don't you think?
The conversation between Alvin and his dad in the car:
Uncle: There are a lot of stupid people nowadays lah. Look at Kuching drivers.
Alvin: Not only Kuching drivers. A lot more stupid people came up with something stupid all the time. You see, what the hell is 'New and Improved'? If the thing is new, it has not been there before. If it is improved, it must have been there before. You say right or not?
Uncle: *think for a while* True also.
Alvin: One more funny thing is that why people always point at their wrist when asking the time and never point to their crotch when asking the whereabout of the toilet?
Uncle: Hahaha! True, true.
Hmm! It got me thinking. There are indeed a lot of stupid stuff that people did and yet would never be understood. For example, a lot of people would get up and search frantically the entire room/house just for that TV remote control because they are just too lazy to walk a few step over to the TV and switch the channels manually.
Back to the 'New and Improved' sentiment, those who came up with that should be shot in the head and fed to the sharks. It would sound better with "Revised and Improved". Ah well, some people just do not get it.

For older Tv & cd player yes u can just operate on the set itself. But on new Tv set just a few button. All other control is on the remote! So no choice but to seach the whole house for it. Have a nice day.

For all TVs, modern or old, there is always a volume and channel control on it. Yes, the remote is a must have, in fact I always go around searching for it when it's not around. Yes I am one of those stupid ppl, hehehe... but come to think of it, it's kinda dumb that I can just walk a few meters to switch the channel manually but I opted to walk around the whole house looking for it. lol.
