And Now A Word From Our Sponsor #27

We'll be back to our afternoon movie, Hercules vs The Roller Derby Queens, after a short message from Otto's Used Autos:

"Greetings, freunde, Otto Bahn here. If you are looking for a dependable car at a price you can afford...you should probably look somevere else. Haha! Ein kleiner witz, freunde!

Seriously, ve have cars of every make and model here at Otto's Used Autos with more arriving nächtlich. Because of our low overhead, ve must move zese vehicles qvuickly, especially before any polizei come snooping around. Auf wiedersehen!"

Join us again tomorrow for The Giant Clam That Ate Phyllis Diller.

    The Phyllis Diller concept reminded me of the real headline that appeared on the front page of The Sun, Britain’s notorious and leading tabloid newspaper back in March 1986, regarding comedian Freddie Starr. ‘Freddie Starr ate my hamster!’

    Haha! Yeah, TV over here back in the 60's and when I was little in the 70's used to have local channels that would show really low budget movies and would have some local business, like a car dealership, sponsor the movie and would do all the ads for it. Really cheap ads done right on the premises of the business, often live during the breaks in the movie. It was just something I remembered as a kid. For better or worse, those days are long gone now.

    I should, of course, have said Wunderbahn! Otto Bahn sounds feasible. After all there is Crockery Barn over there (where I bought some brilliant sweetcorn spikes (for eating corn). Still in regular use twelve years on.
