Nair: Forests are wonderful things, but, for Pete's sake, not under your arms. Merck Pharmaceuticals: When you absolutely, positively have to be married to Dennis Rodman. Viagra: For his birthday, why not get him something you'll both enjoy? Domino's Pizza: What you and our hunky delivery boys do in the privacy of your home is your own business. Sara Lee: You're depressed. We're fattening and delicious. Bon appetit!
