I prefer Dan Ackroyd's Bag O' Glass.

I remember that bit. To me, "Do not taunt Wacky Fun Ball" was one of the funniest lines that I ever heard on SNL. Even today, the idea of warning someone not to taunt an inanimate object makes me laugh.

Oh Bingo, you can be SO DIFFICULT to please sometimes! You'd think after that energy-draining time-sucking effort I made to dredge up -- I mean to research and recover -- this commercial, it would SOMEHOW be appreciated.

But NooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooo.

Well, if you'll just look below your little post, you'll see someone actually DID appreciate it.

Anyway, it so happens I couldn't find your PRECIOUS "Bag 'O Glass" commercial. But maybe -- just MAYBE -- this one (brand spankin' new from "The Onion") will help some for now...

Dental Hygiene Tips

J, glad ya liked it.

(P.S. -- Bingo, that was just to bug ya -- I'm in the mood for teasin' and you just happened to be the perfect innocent victim to come haplessly strollin' along. I could never get mad at you.:)

9/28/2000 Reminder to self: have bullseye-shaped birth mark removed from forehead ASAP...

Actually, Bag O' Glass was introduced as part of a talk show skit. Wasn't a commercial like Bass-o-Matic or Shimmer (It's a floor wax AND a dessert topping).

Eve, you will pay dearly for your outlandish display. Have you not read my post on Unk's thread?

I know that if you quote the line "No hamburger - cheeseburger" to anyone under 40 , they look at you funny.

-- Sam (wtrmkr52@aol.com), September 28, 2000.

chee-boor-gy, chip..no coke, pepsi.

And I'm under 40, BTW.

-- Bingo1 (howe9@shentel.net), September 29, 2000.

A very good morning to you, Bingo, dear!

I so very much hope you're doing well today.

You know, it was really so nice of you to take the time to stop on by my thread yesterday, and contribute another possible commercial for me to put up, Bingo, sweetie. :)

-- eve (eve_rebekah@yahoo.com), September 29, 2000.

Better get yourself a napkin, eve.

Is that sarcasm I spy dripping from your chin? Or the anticipatory (liquid) result of yet another search in your quest to lighten our loads with a good belly laugh? Reminiscing IS fundemental.

Either way, it is Friday!!!. Enjoy your weekends, one and all. Drive safely. Eat, drink, be merry. And don't forget to give thanks to whomever, whenever, for whatever.

Peace - - - Rich

-- Bingo1 (howe9@shentel.net), September 29, 2000.

OMG, I DO remember the cheeseburger one, and I'm only 38!!!

But young people do look at me funny when I do it.

Bingo, I enjoyed you comment bout note to self....

9-29-2000 - my note to self-----STOP taking life so serious, you'll never have to have 2 days exactly alike.

-- consumer (shh@aol.com), September 29, 2000.

Bingo/Rich -- well, let me put it this way...if I think there's a way I can make someone laugh, and it's not out of line, I usually go for it. Knowing or feeling there's a good chance I probably did ('cause I can't really hear ya) is like ambrosia to me.

I hope that answers your concerns. Have a wonderful weekend yourself, Rich.

-- eve (eve_rebekah@yahoo.com), September 29, 2000.

Bingo 'Sumer, Sam, J...

After a long search, I finally found the cheeseburger sketch (and some others) on the following site. The formatting is very bad, though, and it doesn't tell you who's saying the lines. But if you can remember the skit pretty well, you should be able to piece it together. And, hey -- that could be a weekend project!

Have fun!
