Windows 7- The Awkward Aunt in all Our Lives

Okay, you know that Aunt that you have that is just.....really really annoying? You love her and all, but she will leave voicemails 5 minutes long counting down the days until the next big family gathering complete with annoying details in her life that you don't really care about...and then when you meet her, she is just obnoxious beyond comprehension with just enough caffeine in her system to fuel a small third world country?

Okay, well maybe you don't have that annoying Aunt, but let's just imagine you do...

Well that Annoying Aunt is sort of becoming Windows 7....

If you are in a cave somewhere, let me inform you...Windows is releasing Windows 7 as an easier and better replacement of the disaster that was Windows Vista...and Windows is doing it with one of the weirdest advertising campaigns known to man....

Witness Exhibit A:


(I love how the ones at the party are trendy 20's white guy with glasses, mid 30's black guy, early 40's soccer mom, and early 60's grandma which covers almost every demographic and combined makes one of the absolute weirdest mosaic of friends ever)

But now to add to the madness,
I present to to you: Exhibit B-The Windows 7 Whopper Sandwich
Never mind that this sandwich is complete with death as it's sidekick via heart attack, and thus could never be sold in the tightly legislated United States, but let's just focus on the weirdness of the marriage of Burger King and Windows 7....Sure some may like Burger King's food, but does anyone really want Burger King as it's vehicle to advertise? I mean, if I was posting myself asin a dating profile, the last place I would want it showing up is in a Burger King complete with nauseating 7 pattied burger....

And just like the annoying Aunt, I know that one day me and Windows 7 will unite, and I will become equally as frustrated with the system as my own Aunt.
