Yogurt - What More Could a Woman Need?

I know I've blogged about this before, when I first noticed the plethora of commercials about yogurts (and even cheeses) that help you crap regularly. Now, thank goodness, another woman who found these commercials even more annoying than I do has made fun of them!

Oh thank goodness, I'm not the only one who thinks that these ridiculous commercials are a load of crap (so to speak). Based on these commercials, you'd think that women have extraordinarily sensitive digestive systems, and that consuming the least bit of fast food, or encounting even minor stress throws everything off and the poor thing is stopped up and bloated for weeks. Apparently this is not as big of a problem for men, although the only commercial I've seen targeting men who suffer form constipation was hilarious.

Don't they make a pill for that?!?
For crying out loud, ladies: Eat enough fiber and Vit C and you won't need to eat crappy yogurt to (well you know...)

I like Activia yogurt! I don't think it works, but it tastes good nevertheless. There is a Mad TV parody of Jamie Lee Curtis' Activia commercial. In it the yogurt works...a little too well.
