Bedubya I'm a slave to Geo. Foreman,& Ron Popeil (31) RE: I'm a slave to Geo. Foreman,& Ron Popeil 24 Mar 01


I live way out in the boonies - too far away for television reception or cable and I'm damned if I'll have one of those dish things. I own a television which gets used once or twice a week to watch a movie on video. In other words, I am a total television illiterate.

However, I do occasionally come across advertisements in print media that tout an item "AS SEEN ON TV". Usually, the items advertised make me want to laugh my ass off. Not too long ago I came across an ad for some kind of spray-on fake hair with the usual "AS SEEN ON TV" blurb. I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever heard of, but when I showed it to my coworkers they absolutely failed to see anything funny about it! The fact that they had seen it on TV had given it total legitimacy in their minds even though the whole idea was ridiculous.

I once bought some bagged cow manure for the garden and the sales clerk quipped, "Somewhere, there's a cow laughing his ass off". I wonder if the folks who sell these products on TV are related to those cows.

As Mr. Prine so eloquently said, "Blow up your TV".

You'll have more time to play guitar.

Cheers
