The continuing story of the Sham Wow

Remember my post a while back about the Sham Wow, how this was hours of entertainment for my family! I did find a really good use for it. It is great when I let Brooke play in the kitchen sink with her toys. I put it all around her and it soaks up all the water so my floor and counter top don't get all wet! Did you know that the ShamWow guy is actually a comedy movie writer whose movie was endorsed by the Church of Scientology? Wait, it gets better. His movie sucked, so the Church of Scientology dropped the endorsement leaving Vinny in debt. So now he sells the ShamWow with the intentions of somehow singlehandedly taking down the entire Church of Scientology. Anyway, I thought it was funny. Who knew that there was so much anger behind that headset? Wait it gets even better! I am listening to the radio and he was with this lady of the evening and she bit his tongue and would not let go, so he smacked the you know what out of her and they both got arrested. Eeeeewwww! Now I want to put my Sham-Wow in a gallon of bleach!

I heard this news story over the weekend and was cracking up. He always looked like a sleeze to me anyways with his slicked back hair and little headset. Weirdo!!!

LOL - I hadn't heard that story! He is second only to Billy Mays (KaBoom!) in the most annoying ad spokesperson category. He also does a Slap Chop infomercial now, too. I hit the mute button every time I see him on there.
