"How Can Such A Pretty Wife Make Such Bad Coffee?"

This list over at gives a pretty good rundown of some of the more sexist commercials ever to run down the pike. (Warning: Language mildly spicy.) But I think my favorite is this classic Folgers commercial, in which it is suggested that making bad coffee for your husband is almost as bad as kicking the cane out from the hand of an elderly lady as she attempts to cross the street.

Just a suggestion: If your husband reacts to bad coffee this way, get the nice European neighbor-lady to suggest a new husband, not new coffee.
