What are you trying to say, Pandora?

  1. Jonathan Webb says:

    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.

  4. Matthew Lickona says:

    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.
