    I hate it when they advertise good food,

    and the restaurant is like 500 miles away. What the hell is that all about?

    At 2am...NO Place Is Open!

    It's the ice cream commercials that get to me.  Baskin Robin's ice cream cake.  Even worse, Dairy Queen's Peanut Buster Parfait.  They need to stop showing these commercials on TV in the middle of the night, when they aren't open!

    And This Group's Logo! Rotfl!

    I do enjoy eating, even though I sometimes forget to. Especially in the mornings, I tend to jump straight on the computer... even before visiting the bathroom. I am addicted to the net. =p But, I do enjoy a lot of not so healthy foods. I know they are bad for me. But then...

    Didn't Use to

    But now everytime I see a fast food commercial I always get a craving for it. I'm pretty sure they're sending those subliminal messages through the television signals. Evil bastards.

    Better Than P0rn.

    It's true. Some of my friends love looking at adult content during their free time; you'll find me drooling over photos of succulent cheeseburgers dripping with juice and melted cheese or stir-fried meat and veggies steaming from the pan. An officemate once caught me in this...

    Then When You Get There

    The food looks nothing like the plump burger you saw on the ad.  It's like it's thrown together and sloppy.

    Sonic!

    The burgers and ice cream concoctions in the Sonic ads have always made me salivate.  Problem is, the nearest Sonic was 8 hours away.  They were airing the commercials to torture us!  There is a happy ending to this story though.  A Sonic restaurant...

    Weak Willed

      I see a comercial for a food I like and within several days I will be having it one way or the other.  I wish I did not like food so much or at least like healthier foods.

    The Great Hamburger Caper

    I have been on a diet for over 3 years now. I have gone from wearing size 58" jeans down to the 42's that I am wearing now. Most food commercials do not control me any longer. That is except for my greatest weakness the the BIG hamburger like the one that is on the logo for...

    Longhorn Steakhouse!

    I see those commercials every night on Spike during 1000 Ways To Die commercials and it drives me crazy because I can't find a Longhorn Steakhouse anywhere by where I live. If I use their site's restaurant locator, nothing comes up in the state of California. Nothing comes up...

    Ha I get tempted every time when the commercials go to tasty foods. Treats, fast food, a fancy dinner meal, snacks. I know we've all wished at some point that we could just snap our fingers and *POOF* there it is to eat! Of course you go to the restaurants and order your meal to...
