The Consumerist recently awarded their winners of the Worst Ads in America.  Just in case you haven't experienced the nails-on-chalkboard, nausea-inducing, want-to-punch-inanimate-objects-in-the-face joy of these commercials... here are a few of the winners.

The Worst Ad in America:
Anyone else remember the bald guy as the neighbor from "The Single Guy"? Anyone else even remember "The Single Guy"?


Most Grating Performance From a Human:


Celebrity Who Must Have Lost the Most Money During the Housing Crash:
Jimmy Johnson is not only pimping supposedly johnson-enlarging pills, but he's such a pseudo-celeb that he has to make it clear that he's not the race car driver Jimmy Johnson... but they put him in front of a racecar wearing a racing jumpsuit.


Creepiest Commercial:
One word: Catheters.

Today is the 50th Anniversary of the Flintstones premiering on ABC in prime time.  Time to celebrate with songs featuring "rock" or "stone" in the title for the Noon Lunch Whistle.  The Flintstones was not only the first prime time cartoon, leading to current classics like The Simpsons and South Park, but it also gave us Betty Rubble.

Want to help save the earth and still get drunk?  Scottish scientists are using the byproducts of the whiskey-making process to create biofuel.  And it's better than ethanol which needs crops to be grown specifically to harvest the fuel.  The whiskey-based biofuel, butanol, gives 30% more output than ethanol, is created from the waste products that we wouldn't use anyway, and can be used in your car's existing engine!
