    I do remember that, and yes, I hate the loudness, also. I have some hearing issues, so in order to hear the program, I have the sound on abit on the 'up' side. It's a shock to me (and my neighbors) when those commercials come on.

    Yep, me too. I already have the volume on everyone elses "loud" and then when they crank up the commercials I have the windows rattling. I don't have the tv on a lot but enough to get irritated at that.

    It figures, since 21st Century is owned by AIG . . .

    If I have to hear the Bertolli chef sing about his &%#@$*& lasagna again, i think I'll throw a rock through the tv. My temper is getting grumpy anyway due to being trapped here, and this gets on my last nerve. Oh yeah, that includes the woman who sings on the same ad. Bertolli frozen meals aren't even very good, which makes it worse. (see further gripes in the food thread!)

    Did you see where the ShamWow got busted with a hooker? He took her back to his hotel then they gat in a fight.

    MARCH 27--Meet Vince Shlomi. He's probably better known to you as the ShamWow Guy, the ubiquitous television pitchman who has been phenomenally successful peddling absorbent towels and food choppers. Shlomi, 44, was arrested last month on a felony battery charge following a violent confrontation with a prostitute in his South Beach hotel room. According to an arrest affidavit, Shlomi met Sasha Harris, 26, at a Miami Beach nightclub on February 7 and subsequently retired with her to his $750 room at the lavish Setai hotel. Shlomi told cops he paid Harris about $1000 in cash after she "propositioned him for straight sex." Shlomi said that when he kissed Harris, she suddenly "bit his tongue and would not let go." Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue......

    Ew! Is that a hospital gown under his fur-collared jacket (did he steal that from the hooker?) or the shirt he was actually wearing? I hope his mouth is all twisted up because she bit his tongue and not always that way. I'd never buy anything from him!
    Count your blessings!

    Looks like the hooker put a serious hurting on him.

    They are annoying; however, they're also very catchy. They're so simple, but I'll bet you can sing some of the jingles. And that's what advertising's all about!

    The commercials I hate the most are the "Billy Mays here" ones. I.just.cannot.stand.the.man!

    $750 a night room, a $1000 hooker, a night out in South Beach. Wow, Shamwow must be a..........priceless!


    OK some group of locals did a Snuggie bar crawl. I'd have to be drunk to appear in public in that thing.

    Those snuggies are so funny, they make everyone look like they belong to a cult.
