1.) Converting your garage into a Man Cave is waaaaaay cooler than hanging some lights on a tree in the back yard and calling it "Wonderland".
2.) Women are freaking nuts!
While I didn't previously know that women look to inanimate objects like talking yard ornaments and latino pepper shakers for their self confidence boosts, after watching theses commercials I think it explains a lot. While some may argue that men receive messages from objects like cars and tools, at least those messages are predictable depending on the object. A car says "fix me, wash me, and drive me fast" and a chainsaw says "lets chop some trees up". But who knows what a talking frog statue could say next? And putting your life decisions in the hands of a pair of Mexican salt & pepper shakers is just plain scary.
So, the next time your lady friend comes at you with a new plan it may just pay off to ask her who (or what) gave her such an idea.
Hint: Never trust the knife block.
