After 15 years and having made pork chops 900 times, and having him compliment her on dinner every single time…he announced one night he didn’t like HER pork chops.

Um, her pork chops are kinda AWESOME.

{AdTalk} I blame this ad for America’s weight problem. Okay not really. But I do blame it for the over use of Mascara in the 70s.
