Toaster Strudel Boy has a strange, "You WILL eat that strudel," look in his eyes.

Toaster Strudel Boy has a strange, “You WILL eat that strudel,” look in his eyes.

Creepy sells. At least that seems to be one of the main trends in TV ad campaigns. Purveyors of everything from breakfast pastries to deodorant are doing the creepy dance in an effort to get consumers to part with their money.

Every now and then a comedian bursts on the scene who’s so funny he can make the audience laugh just by reading the phone book. Johnny Carson, Paul Lynde, George Carlin, Bill Cosby, George Burns, all had that special ability. Robin Williams had it too.

Cheers!
