Summer moved on; Tasteless advertising, pt. 2

Woke up today and didn't break a sweat immediately after leaving my air-conditioned room. That gave me a start. Peered outside the house carefully, and discovered that against all expectations, the invincible, indefatigable, interminable Israeli Summer is, in fact, showing signs of defeat. A shower and a foo-feeding later, walking to my car to get to work, I felt the distinct sensation of raindrops falling on my head. Whee! I savored the moment a while longer, and drove off to work, thinking there might still be hope after all.

It's been a while since our previous installment of Tasteless Advertising, due solely to my indolence and not to lack of material, but on my way to work the radio assaulted me with the following:
American voice:I did not have sex with that woman.
Israeli voices with reasonable accent: I did not have sex with that woman.
Cheerful advertising voice, in Hebrew: At Berlitz, where we teach English from CNN and business media, learning English is so much easier! Call now [etc.]

foo: last seen sprawled on the sofa, yawning.
