I was watching the "weather channel" a few minutes ago and saw an ad for one your fine products. Two weeds were growing in a crack in the driveway.
They were depicted shaking hands. In particular a type of ethnic handshake sometimes referred to as "fist bumps".
Then the homeowner comes out and kills them with herbicide. There is a strong ethnic connotation to this type of handshake. I wonder why the weeds were not shaking hands, or holding there 'hands/leaves' over there 'hearts' or doing a nazi salute?
