Lots of times I get ideas for this box just by flipping through the newspaper. Truth is stranger than fiction, I always say, and so much more powerful.
I read today about a 91-year-old woman who lost her arms in a pit bull attack. For hours, I couldn’t get the image out of my head of that old woman being savagely mauled.
Until I read about some advertising genius from Florida who wanted to use Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” in a hemorrhoid cream ad. For hours, I couldn’t get the image out of my head of a Florida ad rep being savagely mauled.
Thursday’s forecast: If this asshole goes through with that idea, I’m going to Florida to show him what the unreleased verse of “Folsom Prison Blues” was all about.
