What are you trying to say, Pandora?

    Hysterical, thanks.

  2. Jonathan Webb says

    As your doctor I prescribe a walk through a Louisiana swamp.

  3. Quin Finnegan says

    Nothing a Robin Thicke video can’t cure, and much more cheaply.

    • Matthew Lickona says

      Perhaps, but rather less morally, I fear. While I shudder at the thought of a chemical cantilever, I recoil at the notion of rejoicing over the breasts of a woman not my wife as some kind of aid to intimacy with said wife.

      • Quin Finnegan says

        Maybe a smart-alecky programmer at Pandora is commenting on your taste in music.

        • Matthew Lickona says

          This was actually supposed to be the joke of the post: that fans of Telemann were likely to need Viagra – either because they were superannuated or, in my case, because a taste for that sort of music indicated a lack of virility. Hence the Tele-unmanned tag. But the comment on Facebook – “When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs and one dog yelps, that’s the dog that got hit” – obliterated my feeble gag with its raw force.

    I should note that the other ad I encounter most frequently is for Fiber One snack bars.

    • Quin Finnegan says

      Fiber is the key to a healthy prostate, so you’re covered … I guess that’s your point.

      Bright eyes, indeed.

  5. Jonathan Webb says

    Which composer has ads for Trojans? Wagner maybe?

  6. Jonathan Potter says

    Have you tried Pandora’s “songs to stimulate blood flow” channel?

  7. I thought the joke was that the waify looking thing on the album cover is pointing her wand (!) at the ad as if instructing us to “Tell a Man!” – with a follow up found in the fact that Telemann, the Dickens of music, was as well known for his prodigious “offspring” as Bach for his.
