Ad men
They're still showing Billy Mays commercials on TV. Who made that decision? No wonder so many companies are going bankrupt.

"Sir, should we pull the Billy Mays ad?"

"No, I want our product associated with early death."

"Sound thinking, chief."

If I owned a company I would have Tina Yothers as our official spokesperson; and I'd make a big deal about it. I'd schedule a press conference with promises of a major announcement. There would be a brass band and an open bar and women in bikinis serving hor d'oeuvres. Then Tina Yothers would walk out and suck all the energy out of the building.

It's probably a good thing I don't own a company, huh?


I remember the blog you wrote about Billy Mays a while back that was funny. He seemed like a good guy. I'm a capitalist pig, but profiting from the guys death makes me sick.
