11. When the image above of William Shatner appears, in my head a chorus of voices sing: "PriceLine negotiator!"

That's marketing. :)

Here I go again, showin' my age. I loved the Danny Thomas show as a kid. They don't make 'em like that any more.

mmmmmmmmmmmm cheesepuffs. Yeah so what I'm in Florida.. don't stereotype me just because I also like Nascar and boiled peanuts.

Cheese puffs?? I've lived in the Southeast my whole life, and there's no way I would go near a bag of cheese puffs. Potato chips aren't great, either, though. I'm all about the Doritos when it comes to junk food.

If I were only able to claim some kind of impact on ANY of these statistics, I'd be a happy camper..

Maybe I should go home and let my wife slap me a few times??

Da Old Man said...

I wonder what percentage of men and women would like to slap Marlo Thomas?

WhisperingWriter said...

I thought New Englander's favorite junk food would be clam chowda.

Southeasterners must be friends with Kartman from South Park to enjoy cheesy poofs so much.
