Doomed to Repeat

So I’m at the gym this morning, getting ready for a good, long hill ride on the recumbent cycle (as is my wont on Thursdays), and the following comes on the television:

Yeah. I know.


The first thing that came to mind (once I composed myself) — well, OK, the second thing — was the uncanny coincidence connecting this fine (ehem) product/advertisement to a sort of blast (hurhur) from the past:

I KNOW, right?

And I wonder: did the producers of the former know about the latter? If they did, was their choice of product name deliberate?

Much that is *bleeping* hilarious hangs on knowing this.


About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15 years or so), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've just finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
