I would like to appeal to every car manufacturer, car dealer, discount furniture store, sandwich shop and any other company, marketer or advertiser who thinks that it's funny, or amusing, or entertaining, or interesting to have actors dressed as Presidents Washington and Lincoln rap, sing, breakdance or otherwise appear in adverts for their February sales:  Stop.  Just stop.

It's not funny, or amusing, or entertaining, or even interesting.  It's embarrassing.

And maybe a little offensive.  (Yes, Honda, I'm thinking of you.  For shame.)

So cut it out already.

Oh, and this also applies to Ben Franklin ("the only President of the United States who was never President of the United States," as the Firesign Theater said.)  Just saying.
