According to recent commercials for new blood-sugar/glucose monitors, diabetics don't have to prick their fingers anymore to test their blood sugar anymore.

"You can do it on you arm where it's less painful."

I find this ad depressing because, even though I'm not diabetic myself (KNOCK WOOD), I know certain diabetics can't use this new method and still have to prick their fingers. I'm not sure why that is, but I know it must this particular ad must drive them up the wall!

Lol, how about this one with the syrupy sweet Nicole Johnson whom I'm sure has caused many a diabetic  sugar spiked induced comas?

There are so many things just wrong...  I am especially unsettled by the cross-eyed woman telling me how well she can 'see' her number.  

My fave part?  "There's my number!"  I laugh every time I hear her and I am not sure why.

Probably 'cause you just know she sees her number as 8989.

Yep.  Completely soulless.  Creepy as hell.

This commercial comes on during Jeopardy every night. There are so many things wrong with it...the loud-ass black woman screaming "OWW-WWW!" in the beginning, the fake acting, that cross-eyed woman talking about seeing her number (THERE'S irony for ya! Wink) and that extremely creepy doctor. I'm going to have nightmares now about his eyes and single expression face! *shudders*

I think you misunderstood the cross-eyed lady.  She actually says, "Not only can I see my number (probably in double as Thor pointed out) I can hear it too!!!!".
