HEY, I'M A PC....

Is it just me or does anyone else see the problem and get a bit hot under the collar with the 8 second 'I'm a PC' adverts?
Microsoft has inflicted this annoying advertising campaign on us for a couple of years now starting off with 'celebrity' endorsements. Nowadays, they just show goofy American kids or goofy and smug American dads showing us how easy it is to network a PC to your TV, publish photos and do a spot of air traffic control via your $300 laptop. The phrase get a life you sad bastard springs to mind. Microsoft not only are worth billions and squillions, they are also not so clever at allowing Apple Mac a share of the market and get all handbags about it. They also commission really bad adverts. 
The end of the advert assaults our ears with the herald of trumpets (as annoying as the Intel intro) with the catchline 'Im a PC'. 
I'm a PC? Yes, very probably.. If PC stands for prize cock. Sorry, that's not very PC is it?
