Memoirs of an ad exec

Is anyone else put off by the marketing for Memoirs or a Geisha? First, it showed up in my local newspaper, and I did nothing. Then, it found its way to my Netflix envelope, and still I remained silent. And then, this morning, I finally got a chance to watch this week's episode of Medium.
"Oh look, honey, there's a special preview showing of [The Most Overmarketed Movie in America] tonight. You loved that book!"
"Oh let's get tickets"

They invaded my time with the Dubois family, and I won't be silent any longer.

Of course, I'll probably end up seeing it, but it will be under protest. I should get a t-shirt made.

"I don't wanna write mah memoirs about bein' a geisha, thass boring, what that gon' be like? 'Today ah got up out mah bed, den ah put mah makeups on dat make me look all WHITE. Den, oh girl, you gotta wear this big ass wig, that it just hurt your back, hurt your legs, it's that heavy. You put it on yo head and you put it on yo side o yo head, both sides upside ya head you have this wig on. When it on, you just look like a SHAMROCK. It's big. Then you have to put on about five dresses and on toppa dat you put on a big ass belt. They call it a obi, cause it's like obi, look like a backpack. Thasso big. Then I spend the rest of the day bein a ho.'"
