Installment The Second
This would be the second installment under the TTPMO tag. And what's making my sphincter itch today? Frakking jewelry ads on the radio masheen. Some jackanapes is advertising the "newest thing:" "chocolate diamonds." Oh just go straight to hell you lying peckers. It's bad enough that the deBeers people have cartelized the diamond industry but now we get "chocolate" diamonds.
Do you know what a "chocolate" diamond is (and this is where I really want to go full-bore Mark Levin on the monkey asses)? It's a freakin' industrial diamond that up until some ad man got hold of it was called a "brown diamond." It's crap, people!
And it pisses me off.
Even when the "mudhead" was re-named the "orange roughy" it wasn't as bad as this steaming Madison Avenue road muffin.
ERRATA: I was wrong about the orange roughy. According to Wikipedia, the fish is in the "slimehead" family. So that's "slimehead," not "mudhead." My mistake.

Meh. The color brown has experienced a resurgence in popularity over the past two or three years. It's only natural that the gem folks would cash in on it somehow. And packaging it under a name that's particularly appetizing for women -- genius, really. There aren't a whole bunch of good jewelry-grade gems that are brown, so they have to adapt something they already have plenty of -- created diamonds.

That being said, it's all road-muffins to me. I don't have a lot of use for expensive jewelry; I'd rather sport the costume stuff or the artsy pieces. At least then I'm not worth hitting over the head.
