Side effects of insomnia

You get to memorizing public service announcements, and worse yet, the order in which they tend to appear.

"...shivving each other--"
"Shanking."
"What?"
"It's a verb--to shank?"

Then there are the other ads, like one for a blood glucose meter that announces the reading and lets one puncture oneself in places other than one's finger:

"I test on my arm, and I can barely feel it," a little old lady says.

I want her to shriek, "AAAAAAARGH! I CAN BARELY FEEL MY ARM!"

Later the kindly announcer says "Hearing the reading confirms accuracy." Yeah... I know the meter got the right result, because it READ it to me!

Hey, it's three in the morning. I'll take what humor I can get.
