    “In May 2018 Peter Kay and Sian Gibson filmed an unscripted episode of their popular comedy Car Share for the BBC. Gibson's character Kayleigh asked the question:
    "What's the U for in a club sandwich? The C L B are chicken, lettuce and bacon, so what's the U?"
    Following that, numerous people (seemingly unaware that Car Share is a comedy) began posting online answers suggesting that 'club' is an acronym for 'chicken and lettuce under bacon'.”

    most attribute the name to their first being served at the sarasota club or the union club which would also explain why they are also called clubhouse sandwiches.

    Not in the category of bd, but I love all the Skip the Dishes commercials every time they come on. John Hamm is hilarious.

    ^ Even worse than that is Boston Pizza's horrible Christmas carol. If I was one of those customers being forced to listen to that, I'd be committing a massacre.

    Mute the Boston Pizza turkey pizza commercial, please.

    Self indulgent and very annoying!

    I'm liking the new dark mode to c2e, and our "like" button is back . Lately those Freedom mobile ads are driving me bonkers.

    Any ad that uses insipid, naff versions of classic pop songs. Beatles' 'From Me to You', Frampton's 'Show Me the Way', Troggs' 'Your Love is All Around Me'. I'm sure there are others, too.

    On the Shark vacuum commercial, the orange lines are not parallel (for vacuum in a rectangular room).
