Any of you cable viewers ever see the ads on Retroplex Channel about the Stephen King movie festival? The ads start off by intoning "Sofa. King. Scary." And the words are said faster and faster...Say them faster yourself and you'll see what I mean by my post's title!

Women should be obscene and not heard. Groucho Marx blush

Wow, good catch!!- I've seen that ad quite a few times, and did not make that connection!
The other thing about that is that it doesn't even start airing for another few months. I guess
They are expecting (or hoping) for big ratings.

It's almost better to say it slowly, with a pause between "Sofa" and "King".

I'd think parents might object to the sneaky-cussing. But then again small children aren't the target audience for Stephen King-derived movies, anyway. (I hadn't heard of the Retroplex Channel before; interesting.)

Yeah, I believe retroplex is part of the encore
Channels, not sure if many cable companies include it.
