Okay...I have worked in healthcare for years. I have seen it all, but one thing that really bothers me are toenails.

 

I was just looking at a thread in the "How Do I" forum, and this NASTY ad came up about toenail fungus. 

 

All I want to know is WHY? Why here? It's cakes. UGH! I couldn't even finish reading the entire thread because it gave me chills and made me nauseated. 

 

So gross...sorry about my rant. I know this site needs to be funded by advertisers so it can stay free, but I'm not digging the nasty toes. 

 

:-t

Why couldn't I have gotten Craftsy and Jelly Belly??? Nope...I get the one thing I can't stand! I was offered a job in a podiatry office. I turned it down. That's how much it bothers me. hahaha!

You got toenail fungus ads to give you ideas for special Halloween cakes?

 Yes me too..I think that's how it works, the ads are targeted from whatever has been searched on your computer..or things related to your searches.

I definitely haven't Googled anything about fungus. Toenail or otherwise. I think someone knows I hate it. Haha! Still makes me nauseated thinking about it. :grin:

I saw the toenail thing too - and I most certainly have not been googling anything to do with toenails.  It was revolting!!!!

I think we need to find more things to complain about. I just took great offense at an ad for Budget cars that is staring at me right now. I certainly can afford Avis.

I got an ad for Seventeen magazine. I'm about 2 1/2 times that. And now I've got bedbugs. Not me, just the ad. Within the last 15 minutes I saw a post re: them on another message board. No offense taken (except the bedbugs are pretty gross right next to cake). I realize it's robots. Or the internet is sentient. Perfect explanation!
