What is with marketing and bodily functions?

After watching television for a fairly long time today I’ve arrived at this simple conclusion.  All marketing on television (at least over the air) is written by ten-year olds infatuated with normal bodily functions.  How did I come up with this conclusion?  Watch for a time and you too will draw the same conclusion.  In many of today’s advertisements and television programming, we see videos involving people either chewing with food hanging out of their open mouths, excessive crunching, slobbering, drooling, slurping, smacking, belching or plain ol’ “passing gas” (as in flatulence).  Now I realize that over the last fifty years, marketers have lowered the age bracket at which they write their shows and commercials for, but six-year olds?  At least this seems to be the only ones that lack the intelligence and would actually enjoy this garbage! 

Could it be that marketers believe this is the average intelligence of the American adult that they are writing for?  Anyone taught common manners or basic etiquette should be floored by what is being presented here as normally accepted behavior for children or adults!  I see and can now understand why more households are shutting off their televisions and connecting to Internet T.V..  After all, don’t we have enough problems getting along with each other without teaching plain bad manners to our children as being normally accepted behavior?
