I was watching cartoons with Jack this morning and saw a PSA about braces. Yeah, you read that right. A public service announcement about braces. Now, from what I remember about working at a local television station, the locals have to plug kids programming with PSAs. I believe it's a federal requirement. There may be a spot or two for commericals but the rest is PSA filler. Maybe it was a network spot. Either way, it shouldn't have been marked as a PSA.

The craziest PSAs I remember seeing when I worked at the station was one about plastic surgery (it's real surgery so give it some serious thought), and one about PGA golf. Um, sorry. I threw those away. Those didn't qualify for PSA's. Not sure how one about braces made the cut.
