    I had an argument with a guy once because he wanted his pizza cut in 9 pieces. I told him it would have to be an even number because we cut our pies with a pizza knife. I said I'd cut it in 6 pieces for him. He said it had to be in 9 pieces because there were 3 people eating it and wanted an even number of slices for each. I actually had to explain to him that 6 is also divisible by 3.

    But if they're eating 3 pieces, they feel like their eating more! I actually understand their logic!!

    Hey, that would make a good case for banning Billy Mays from the airwaves altogether!

    And now, besides Billy Mays, we also have that guy who wears the headset and talksreally fast. Selling "SHAM-WOW!!!!!" and such. I hate hate hate him.

    Vince! Someone needs to take him, his creepy, squinty eye and his stupid headset, wrap him with a Shamwow and jettison him off to the far corner of the universe.

    And make room in that container for Billy Mays.

    Gosh, Wayward, tell us how you REALLY feel.


    I so agree. I didn't think anyone could be more obnoxious than Billy Mays, but the Shamwow guy sure is. And why does he need that stupid headset.

    I swear those sham things could cure fatness, baldness and cancer and I wouldn't buy any just because the guy is so loud and horrible.
