We haven't done one of these in a while, and I still see things, so here are a few:
Seen recently at a Goodwill, right between 12 copies of HOME ALONE and 40 copies of the 1998 American GODZILLA. I don't know what to make of this. Surely it must be, uh, educational, but it's lost on me. The cover art isn't helping, either....I mean, somebody got paid to work on this. Probably. Everyone has to eat, but this doesn't strike me as something you put atop your resume. Of course, when I returned to that particular Goodwill, this tape was long gone! So we will never know.
I am also stumped at this one...what does it do? What is it for? "It shoots aluminum jerky, silly!" is the answer I keep getting when I ask people.
Now, this one is just dumb. We all know that his name is Mickey! I am calling obvious bootleg on this one.

It has recently come to my attention, in opening my gas bill, that my gas company has adopted a "mascot" who is nothing more than an open flame. Is this really a good idea? Yes, I hear you cry, there is such a thing as a "pilot light," but how many random people that you run into on the street even know what that refers to? Therefore, when I paid my last bill, I submitted my own humble idea to them:
"Gassy" makes much more sense, if our goal is to anthropomorphize natural gas, don't you think? Meaning, "Gassy" is much less likely to get people blown up.
So far, no response from the gas company regarding my suggestion. And, the gas at my house is still on, so...so far, so good.
