For quite a long time, I’ve noticed this trend in entertainment where the guy is the dope/the woman is smart and in control. It’s most obvious and polarized in commercials since they have 30 seconds to get their messages across. But, giving it deeper thought, it’s not a new thing. Ralph Kramden, anyone? It’s acceptable for the guy to be the screw up dope and it’s expected. Now, if someone would please explain why those commercial TV dopes all seem to be named ‘Gary’, I would be eternally grateful.
