What's She Late For? Can I call a Cab?

Ron gets a no-prize with unintended consequences for bringing us this clever ad. I'm not completely sure if the product is real, but the writing is funny enough.
eMail this entry!
it's a good one! Of course, I posted this on LJ yesterday and got a terse response from a young lady on my friends list:
Mark, you know I love you... but seriously? You really think it's original and funny? I honestly don't think it's any more creative than the Axe adds.
Do I detect a little righteous indignation? :-)
I wasn't aware that spoof ads were supposed to be original? Or is that me just missing things?
You know, I gotta tell you--I'd still rather be the first guy. I think I can handle buying tampons. I do my own dishes, and my own laundry--and I use bleach, but only on the whites. I can cook things that didn't come in a cardboard box. And I leave the lid down.
...you know, I think maybe I figured out what's wrong with me. It's that there ISN'T anything wrong with me. Women want a wild stallion that they can break to the saddle; but I'm a tiger, who won't be tamed and doesn't need to be.

This is quite possibly the coolest thing ever said.
c.f. "Grandeur, Delusions of"
for the record, I never suggested to her that it was "original." I just said (in my post) that it's the funniest 'commerical' I had seen in a long time!
I think the problem is that it's "funny ha-ha" and not "funny hehehe".
