Sufferin' Succotash

Why would someone hire an announcer with a lisp to read this commercial? If the guy doesn't have a lisp, it's the sound quality of the commercial. Whichever it is, this local southeaast Texas television spot is unintentionally hilarious...

For nearly thixty yearth, The Thkooner hath therved thoutheatht Texath the motht thucculent theafood delivered daily thraight from the Gulf of Methico, out of the net and thraight to the grill. The tathte of frethneth is unmithtakeable: thnapper, flounder, thrimp and crab. Remember, if it thwimth, you'll find it at The Thkooner. Tathte The Thkooner differenth on the corner of Highway Three-thixty-five in the Platha Thopping Thenter.

Just got caught up, and after the shock of the white-shoes-guy, I have to tell you what a great picture that is of you and the office-folks-for-Tyler. In your shoes, I'd crop that, post it and start insisting on being 36 again.

Lorna - I've decided that, when asked my age, I'm going to start telling people 39 and 11 years. Let them do the math.

Popeye - I was afraid it was kind of mean but every time I heard the commercial it was driving me crazy to potht...I mean post...it.

This would have to be intentional Laurie, no way could they come up with that dialogue by accident.

Laurie said...

Jen - Dothn't it make you thtarving?

Deek - Yeah, I hethitated before pothting thith but I couldn't rethitht. I got over it.

Peter - It doesn't seem to be intentional. You know what I mean? It isn't a goofy guy in a crazy costume acting silly. It's just a voice-over with some picturth of fabulouth theafood.

The food there (The Schooner) is very good, by the way.
