A recent early-morning class in Room 215 featured several clips of Super Bowl commercials. The following conversation ensued:
Mrs. Scribe: So, how does the advertiser try to get the consumer's attention?
Student A: Um, with sex?
Student B: No, dummy. You boys always think the same. The advertiser is trying to show that men and women think differently.
Mrs. Scribe: Well, you both could be right. What's the hook?
Student C: Um, we're waiting to see what happens after his rant about sex?
Student B: We're supposed to decide that Pepsi Max is better than sex.
Mrs. Scribe: Is this believable, then? I don't really know. I've never tried Pepsi Max.
Silence. Then, Student A and his little 16-year-old friends start to giggle.
