Advertisements on Christian radio

You can always tell who the expected demographic of a radio or television show is by the commercials. For instance, when Krista and I watch late night television, it is targeted at insomniacs, old people in so much pain they can't sleep, and people who like to play pool, talk on "date lines" and eat enough hot peppers to get on the "Wall of Fire" at the local bar (open all night).

So I've been listening to the ads on Christian radio. Weight loss centers, 1% mortgages, get rich quick schemes (but we're Christians, you can trust us!). Apparently they are targeting fat, gullible people with little or no cash who want to make a lot of money without spending any or doing any work. Whoa! Man. I can't believe they pegged me so easily.


  1. Don't forget that they are "safe for the whole family" - so not only fat, gullible, lazy folk...but lustful after safety too.

    Maybe they are reading the Open Theology Daily devotional...

    Hmmm seems to me that a Mr. Beaver had something to say about that...
    "He's not safe, but He's good."
