                                                 The Price We Pay 
                                             (for the Senior Channel) 
                                 A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © all rights reserved 2016

        (Older actor enters, has a sign - Free for All!- waves it, then puts it down)

That's about it, folks.  I'm just here on my favorite channel to protest - all the complaining folks who hate all the advertising wherever we go.  On the Internet, on TV, on our phones!......when we drive down the street, when we .....go to the toilet!  Everywhere is an ad.......but let me ask you much will you pay to NOT have these damn ads?  $1.00 a day?  That's $365 a year.  Wikipedia has no ads, do you pay them when you use it?  I'll bet you the answer!

And what if you buy nothing from all those ads?  Do they take away your Internet? Do they stop your phone or your TV?   NO!  So here's a big thought for all you Bitch and Moaners in the streets and online and in the grocery store........The ADs ARE THE PRICE WE PAY.......!!!

         (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

THE PRICE WE PAY....for FREE......

         (Exits....... to watch some more ads!)
