Endemall Cigarettes

And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #26

Here's Lou Keemeeya to speak for the Terminal Tobacco Company, makers of Endemall Cigarettes...

"Friends and fellow smokers, don't let fear mongering deprive you of one of the last true joys in life. Just because our cigarettes have more tar in them than the pits of La Brea is no reason to stop smoking. Extensive tests were done by our own team of physicians, led by leading expert Dr. Nick O'Teen, and found that smoking is no more dangerous than jumping into a pool of sharks while hemorrhaging."

Endemall. You've got one life, enjoy it...at least what's left of it!

Sheep Gut Condoms

And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #25

Here's Shakespearean stage actor Dick Turban to speak for Sheep Gut Condoms:

"Is it not strange that sheep's guts should hale souls out of men’s
? I uttered that line as Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing. Another use for sheep guts back in the day was that of contraception. Yes, they made reusable condoms out of sheep guts. Use it, wash it out, dry it, and use it again. If your ancestors had availed themselves of this method you might not even be here to try them! Put a lid on procreation the Victorian way with Sheep Gut Condoms!"

And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #24

Hello. Although we doubt anyone will show up, we would like to invite everyone to our annual National Association of Yammering Skeptics convention, supposedly being held in the ballroom of the Dubious Hotel.

N.A.Y.S. was allegedly founded by Shirley Knott, although no evidence has surfaced that she ever actually existed.

N.A.Y.S. reportedly has over one million members, though no one has been able to substantiate that claim.

Rumor has it that legendary punk band The Puking Cynics will be performing, but that sounds rather suspicious to me.

Please come, reservations aren't needed. God knows we already have enough of those...

"Lifestyles..." Promo

And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #15

Next time on "Lifestyles of the Stupidly Rich & Undeservedly Famous":

Join me, Cash Bankroll, as we take a hard-hitting look at international celebrity Candy Slutstack, spokesbimbo for Lipschitz Lipstick, and all-around waste of good oxygen. Candy slept her way to the top, and has spent more time on her back than a paraplegic. She parlayed that into an acting role, if you want to call it that, on the hit Sux TV Network series "Chip Nayle, Office Lackey."

Bold, brash, trashy. Candy Slutstack in a nutshell. Next time on Lifestyles of the Stupidly Rich & Undeservedly Famous.
