The best commercial to run during the 2010 winter Olympics begins like this: “In 2006, Jong Don and Jong How…”
“… an unprecedented throw…”
“… went terribly wrong…”
“Nobody thought they could continue…”
“… but they did more than continue… they won the silver medal.”
Cry! But the minute you gather your wits to celebrate their skating victory in honor of Visa, the only card accepted at the Olympic games, you hear the following voiceover:
“I’m at the doctor getting my shoulder looked at…”
“… as we’re finishing up I mention I’m going to the bathroom more often…”
“And my doctor checks it out — good thing — turns out my urinary symptoms are due to BPH, also called Enlarged Prostate.”
“My doctor says over time, Avodart has been known to shrink the prostate and improve urinary symptoms…”
And finally the patient’s voiceover warns the commercial audience, “Tell your doctor if you have side effects, such as swelling of the breasts.”

There is never a dull moment while watching the Olympics………
Debby saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 9:24 am
Bahaha! That was a coffee-spit-out closer Bossy! Gold medal to you!
The Domestic Goddess saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 9:27 am
Breast swelling? No thanks.
I mean. For men and all.
William saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 9:51 am
I wish Visa would have to list their side affects in their commercials…Like Using your visa may cause you to go into debt beyond what you can pay, Most prostitutes do not accept Visa. If you use your VISA for more than four hours you should call an attorney.
Gail K. saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 9:52 am
BOSSY gets right to the heart (and soul and spleen and prostate) of every hard hitting issue!
I am glad BOSSY is there to explain it all for me.
Shelley saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 9:57 am
Ha! William’s comment is awesome. My favorite Visa Olympic commerical is the one about Dan Jansen and how his sister died and he promised her he’d win and then he fell down in his race. Then at the next Olympics, he won the gold and did a victory lap carrying his baby daughter, who was named after his sister. *sob*
peterpanic saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 10:08 am
Sooooo, breasts get larger as prostate gets smaller…who cares, pissed myself reading this….I’m cured! Thanks so much!

I just spit my morning yogurt on my laptop! Freakin’ hilarious!
La Suzette saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 12:50 pm
I dub thee Bossy, “Best in Show.” I knew there was reason why I wasn’t watching the Olympics, but hell yeah I wish I’d seen that commercial. Can’t believe you were quick enough to tape it!
Mel saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 1:19 pm
David has to avert his eyes whenever that Visa commercial comes on, and I must admit I don’t care to watch that fall, either. Ouch!
I love how the Avodart commercial voiceover doesn’t say, “So Doc stuck his finger up my bum to have a feel, and then put me on estrogen.” And considering that guy probably made an easy $100K for doing that commercial, I don’t think he’s terribly concerned about where his acting career has gone.
Half Assed Kitchen saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 1:37 pm
That could actually be the pinnacle of his career. National Prostrate Commercial!!! Shown during the Olympics!!
Cactus Petunia saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 1:40 pm
Hmmm….These are two separate commercials, right? But, wait! You can also pay for your Avodart and prostate exam with Visa, soon to be the only card accepted at your proctologist!
David saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 1:46 pm
Bossy has clearly never worked as an actor. That is the face of a man who is thinking “In your face, former agent who dropped me after I hit 45, I just bagged a national commercial airing on the Olympics and it just paid for my kid’s freshman year college tuition.”
Cupcake Murphy saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 2:16 pm
Man boobs are scary.
josh saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 2:55 pm
In the “bathroom face” pic, the guy looks like he is MELTING!
Grandma J saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 3:13 pm
Great post as usual, Bossy!
I love all those prostate commercials. They are almost as funny as the ED commercials…or the one where those women tell their friend Irene to “drop the itch”.
almudena saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 3:58 pm
breast swelling? um, what is that pill called again?
Lisa saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 4:41 pm
Oh Shelley, Im so with you!!!
Some of those Olympic moments are totally sob-worthy..
foolery saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 4:55 pm
The handshake symbolizes “I put my card in the palm of your hand in case you have any breast swelling. Call me.”
Or not, I dunno why I even try. You people are FUN-NY, just like BOSSY. Thanks for the laughs — off to grow up. 😉
meleah rebeccah saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 5:38 pm
Meleah thinks Bossy is HILARIOUS.
Reeb saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 6:09 pm
Methinks Bossy and her posse are hilarious.
Margie saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 6:12 pm
The January issue of Golf Digest arrived shortly after Tiger’s “accident”. Tiger and the Pres are on the cover and the headline is “10 tips Obama can take from Tiger”. We wondered what Mrs. Pres thought of that one!!
I was glad to know that the actor probably made a bundle by being an Olympian with a famous prostate.
BH saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 7:58 pm
All the way around.
BOSSY saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 8:28 pm
Hey y’all. Is this comment section broken-ish again?
Mrs. G. saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 9:46 pm
You forgot to mention the decrease in semen. Question for the day: who measures?
Meg saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 9:55 pm
Yeah, I stopped listening at the breast swelling. Gah.
Heather saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 10:29 pm
Semen? Breasts? Those should be xxx’s not rings…
bossy's friend amy saysFebruary 22, 2010 at 11:11 pm
holy mother of gah – i think i have an enlarged prostate – i’ve got all those symptoms… including weak stream.
Melanie @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy saysFebruary 23, 2010 at 2:37 am
The only thing I’ve paid attention to in the Olympics commercials is Morgan Freeman’s voice. But now I’ll pay more attention.
km saysFebruary 23, 2010 at 10:32 am
can Bossy review the most funny ad on TV right now- The Old Spice man that our man can smell like, look at me, now at him, now back at me…..
I am Olympic-ed out by now I’m afraid.
…I’m on a horse
Texas Susan saysFebruary 23, 2010 at 11:12 pm
Love the Old Spice ads!! I laugh every time.
Maybe they need to put the BPH guy on a horse.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?
oakley sunglasses aviator square saysJuly 29, 2014 at 2:00 am
I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.
