"I enjoy a good ad campaign as much as the next fellow, as I
crave being seduced by the ad-meisters of Madison Avenue like most
other red-blooded Americans. My current favorite TV ad, for

"So does inadvertent irony, which is why I started laughing very
loudly when I saw the latest IBM ad for Linux."
