Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

I can tolerate the inherent gender biased nature of the tampon and sanitary pad ads.

But the next time a credit card company does a goddamned "Lady's card" ad (the men don't get it!), we should throw a hissy fit too. Boycott!! Mancott!! :D

Funny no one protest or say it's sexist when an ad or tv show has one or more women wear very little or no clothes at all. Toyota must be puzzled. They should use more naked women in their ads in future.
