But really, no difference with doing humans appearing in ads. Pins are used on them too.

Yeah, I agree. There are some people in ads/tv that are 20+ my age, and they look like they are only a few years older. That's why I enjoy watching "Two Fat Ladies." I'm going to be Jennifer Paterson someday really soon.

If I ate at Subway anymore, I would like to have a picture from their TV ad. I would present it to them and say, I want a sub exactly like this one, where you actually see the meat and all the NICE looking vegis!

Craig, I actually did something like this in a Jack in the Box one time. I received my burger and the tomato was green! Not even ripe. I took the burger back to the counter and requested a red tomato like in the picture or my money back. Well, they gave me a red tomato. I realize that the pics on the menu are ideal images and our food will likely never look exactly like that, but I at least should have been given a ripe tomato. A little squeak and I got my tomato.

Subway ads are my pet peeve. I ate often in the Subway when I first arrived here. Tiny wedges of meat, they put mayo on at the end instead of on the bread, and when I complained, were surly and rude.

The huge pieces of meat piled high is NOT what you get. Not even close.

Okay, rant over. Thanks, I needed that.
