Dawn Dishwashing Liquid Commercials- the more things change....
1. "Women will happily act as waitresses and dishwashers for their fat lazy families, if at least one person in those families expresses bs throwaway gratitude in the form of a toast or compliment now and then. Because women are vapid little handmaidens programmed to serve." I hope Uncle Charlie's heart explodes before this Little Woman gets a chance to fry him up some of his favorite chicken. Tool.
2. "Your mom's almost here? The dishes aren't done yet- tell you what, get your worthless ass in her and you do them while I greet here, dickwad. I know you've never done this cleaning-dishes thing before, but I'm sure with a little practice you'll get the hang of it."
3. "See, honey? I'm doing you a FAVOR by 'letting' you do all the dishes- they keep your hands wonderfully soft. You are so lucky to have all those dirty dishes to yourself- I wish I could find a way to keep MY hands creamy smooth and young-looking. Well, sucks to be a male, I guess!"
Universal lesson: Whether it's 1973 or 2014, cooking and dishwashing is strictly women's work. Ugh.
(By the way, I don't think that woman in No. 3 ever leaves that kitchen- it's so disgustingly clean, it's practically gleaming- I think Adrian Monk would happily move into this house. Why are kitchens in these commercials always look like germ-free laboratories and not places where people actually do any cooking?)
