When I read in Extra, Extra yesterday about the Desperate Housewives marketing onslaught at my local Ralphs parking lot in Valencia, I just had to check it out. I chuckled when I saw the parking stripes -- and I have to admit it was the first advertising that caught my attention in awhile.

But I'm still not going to watch the lame show.

There are about four aisles striped with Desperate Housewives advertising at the Ralphs in Granary Square in Valencia, off McBean Blvd.

And one more for the road. This advertising gimmick is just desperate. (Sorry I couldn't resist.)
