Google ads redux

I really really really like reading the ads on the side of my email. I think google's a little hive of geniuses, if only for the unintentional comedy of the ads. A sampling from today:

Coffee Exposed
A shocking secret coffee co's don't want you to know

What might that be? It's overpriced filtered water? Yowzers!

5 Reasons for Belly Fat
Why you struggle with stomach fat. Learn 5 tricks to lose it.

How...How did you know about my belly? Where are you?

Is Your Belly Fat & Ugly?

Well, I wouldn't say it's ideal, but that's a little presumptuous, wouldn't you say?

Want Massive Shoulders?

I know You Do
See Why I'm the Man and You're Not

Well, I can already tell it's probably an issue of self confidence, but I'm intimidated already. And I AM the man, anyway. A little at least, I think. No? OK.

I'm a little shaken by the brazenness of the ads, but I have to tell you - Google KNOWS me, and more importantly, what's best for me. Pardon me, I have some shoulder exercises to do.

My ad today from Yahoo!Mail:

Lybrel: Now you can have highly effective birth control... with no regular monthly periods.

Hmm, this has me posing two questions:
1) Does my current birth control seem to be NOT highly effective?
2) Is your birth control going to give me IRREGULAR monthly periods?

So far I'm not loving the Lybrel hype.
