    Does anyone employ a smug self satisfied grin when they're driving?

    Or when you're playing bet365 bingo?

    Or booking an hotel room?

    'kin adverts do my head in.

    Pretty much the only time I employ a smug self satisfied grin, is when I'm stretched out under a palm tree with a g&t or we've just turned over the uglies or yams

    Ray Winstone imploring us to "Bet responsibly. When the fun stops, stop" always cracks me up

    Such is the way of adverts.

    Everybody is always happy, kids in Kinder egg adverts are always incredibly middle class, call their mum 'mummy' and are good looking.

    The kitchens in food, soap powder & washing up liquid ads are always huge compared to the pokey hole you have to cook in and the dirt Flash, Cillit Bang and the rest are shown removing can actually be removed with a dab of Fairy liquid and a damp cloth . why did you let your bog / kitchen get in that state in the first place?

    There are far more mix raced couples in adverts than is in any way representative of the actual real life percentage I would guess.

    The lassie in the Scottish widows ad probably isn't A) Scottish . or B) a widow.

    Plain lassies never advertise make up even though its main purpose is to make plain lassies look less plain

    And the family in the Dettol ads shown wiping down the kitchen and even door handles with the stuff is probably the family who are never away from the doctors with allergies and infections their kids cant fight because their immune system hasn't had a chance to practice.

    And on it goes

    Don't get me started on those skin care product adverts where they've clearly picked the most genetically superior models they could find to show case their bull**** product!

    What about a blob of some liquid or other that's clever enough to condition you're hair where it needs it most?

    I like to soak up the general air of delusion. It's bracing.

    I only get smug after the 10th car has joined the queue behind me when towing the caravan through the countryside.

    Smugness just borders on arrogance. Really not a nice trait.

    My face is usually twisted in hatred. It's a hard life.

    I'd only be smug after I'd encouraged the trivago woman to leave the hotel via the 15th floor window.
