    lol..I was moments away from posting the same thing earlier, but then I had to restart my computer and for some reason the ad stopped popping up. Give it a try, I hope it works out for you!

    I had problems yesterday with that, but not today!

    I remember my sons bringing home dvd's that starred the thumb people-I had a hard time watching them!

    Re: Most annoying commercial characters

    omg, i just heard this on the radio today ... had to rush home and look it up to see if it's true. apparently billy mays is going to have his own reality show on the discovery channel, called "But Wait ... There's More"

    The network has greenlighted at least seven new projects, including several from top docudrama creators Thom Beers and Craig Piligian, as part of an effort to continue increasing its number of original programming hours.

    First is "But Wait ... There's More" from executive producer Beers, which follows longform ad salesmen Billy Mays and Anthony "Sully" Sullivan as they evaluate quirky new products, craft pitches and take to the airwaves to push the goods.

    The entrepreneurial advertising-age setting marks a departure for Discovery and Beers, the latter best known for his gritty, naturalistic series such as the network's top-rated "Deadliest" and History's "Ice Road Truckers." Discovery has ordered 13 episodes of the show and plans to premiere it in the spring.

    "They're a pair of great characters who have become multimillionaires doing this business," Discovery Channel president and general manager John Ford said. "Beers is the ultimate entrepreneur himself, so this is a labor of love for him."
    the rest of the article, which just talks about other projects:

    Discovery aims for big splash with slate

She's glad his holidays are over, because you never know--it could be someone else on the phone.

    Back when we had our restaurant I had someone ask me how big a 9 inch pizza was. And they weren't joking!

    Having managed several pizza places I believe it. One that sticks out in my mind is a customer asking how many pieces are in a 14" pizza. When told 12 the customer asked if I could cut it in 10 pieces as they didn't think they could eat 12.

    I've used that line before. I got it from either Yogi Berra or Casey Stengal.

    I had a brain lapse once when I ordered "Fish and Chips with fries.".
