Not Quite Masterful

Like a rhinoceros in the living room, it is difficult to miss the irony of the latest Nike ad. On the eve of the golfing whoop-de-do in Augusta, the Just Do It company unveiled a commercial without their catch phrase. And their star, in black-and-white (take a moment, think about it), is Tiger Woods, who just did it and is now being punished for it. Adding even more, he faces the disembodied voice of his father, the late Earl Woods, who just did it as well with a lady other than the one to whom he was not wed. [Earlier: Some Tiger Snark]

Do it, indeed. As the ad asks, "Did you learn anything."
