I don't know how many cities are served by the Regional Help Wanted family of websites, but in my area it's OmahaHelpWanted.com.

Their latest radio adverts star a character named Dave who is always some kind of ass#*£€, either "Employee of the Month" or "The World's Worst Boss." After subjecting the listener to a truly obnoxious skit, a canned disclaimer yammers that they don't discriminate against people named Dave, and admonishes listeners not to write in if offended, in their words, "that would be a very 'Dave' thing to do, Dave."

This crap has been on the air for quite a while - too @#%ing long. But we all know it's cool to make fun of people who get offended by insulting commercials, right?

Bullshot.
I keep encountering 3rd graders who sound smarter than most ad writers.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.
