Just heard an appalling radio spot: a young lad, to his mother--
"Mom, what if something happens to Dad?"
"What do you mean, son?"
"Well, Bobby's dad died, and he wasn't even sick. They had to move!"
Since the ad then went into its insurance pitch, I waited in vain for the "mom's" only rational reply: "Son, if that's your biggest concern in such a circumstance, Dad and I have raised a monster."
