I left a comment over at The Talent Show
Personally, I’d be glad to give a thorough pounding to anybody who uses the word “delicious” in a commercial. Very seldom does a food merit “delicious,” and that goes for most of the food I really like. But seriously? Crackers are not delicious. Soup, often good, rarely delicious. In general, if it’s advertised on TV, it doesn’t qualify.
And as far as beer goes, I’m convinced that nobody really thinks it tastes good anyway. If they did, wouldn’t there be beer flavored ice cream and beer candy? If you got your all-important buzz, what do you have to complain about?
“Delicious” is a word lazy ad writers use when they’re stuck for copy and late for cocktails.
