    ...other than the pack of coyotes yelping in the forest behind my house just now.

    Infomercials. They advertise products that are hit and miss. Its largely hard to trust that the product will even get to you, much less work. So why are 90 percent of the guys pitching this stuff the sleaziest sounding joisey gutter trash? The type of guy who you are absolutely sure will grope a teenage girl on the subway so you definitely make sure to insert yourself between him and your daughter. Basically Frank from Always Sunny. I mean, I know I can't speak too loudly being from the home of Mike's Golf, but can someone explain this to me?

    I'm going to knock the shit out of Roland Martin, if I ever see him over his helicopter lure. I was in the 4th grade and I thought they would help me beat my dad at fishing.

    They employ these over-the-top spokespeople for one reason: It makes Americans buy their shit.

    Not being a smart-ass, that's legit the reason why.

    I always see these products at Fry's electronics. "As seen on TV" section near the impulse buy section, I've almost been suckered into buying.

    He was cool. Was enthusiastic but still sounded somewhat professional.

    Yeah but I don't understand why? There's an ad that runs on ESPN radio for some sort of device that keeps you from snoring. The guys isn't over the top like the ones above, he just sounds like an idiot. I hear pitch men like that all the time on ESPN early in the morning. How does that sell?

    I somehow wound up with a slap chop. I might even still own it, but I don't remember buying it. My wife might have, or it might have been a gift. It was used a couple of times.

    I don't know how we ended up with one, but my wife uses it all the time. She cuts up a lot of really hot peppers and she doesn't get it on her hands when she uses it. It's also the only way she will cut onions.
