I know that I am not the only one here...

Do those Iceland Health radio ads creep you out too? Creep-ola AND unbelievably irritating.

Basically the kindly folk of Iceland are soooo concerned about the health of us Americans that they are giving away bottles of fish pills. And to do so they are flooding the airways with radio ads that sound like Seven of Nine's younger sister, Twelve of Fourteen, talking - and struggling mightily with the words. Like a borg. Totally creepy.

Seemingly if you call an 800 number, or go online, you can get your free sample. I didn't see it on the website, but then again I didn't really look all that hard.

My theory is that the prime minister of Iceland is still pissed at his European "friends" for not bailing out his country financially, and now he is trying to win over the US. Or maybe he just wants to annoy the crap out of us until we send him a bailout package.

Well, I doubt if we'll assimilate into the collective that readily. Unless those pills really do counteract the effects of eating a cheeseburger.

Oh, come on, you mean to say that's worse than the colon-spackle guy on 'BZ? :-).
