"Jim Skinnert-Where a Hundred Dollars sez we'll beat your best deal-Irregardless!" sometime in the 1980's, they corrected the use of "Irregardless"....Then they did Star Trek themed ads that were really priceless....I really miss the Father, he looked like he was not happy to be in these ads!!

Publiusr, I had no idea you were here too.....

Dale, "too close to Centerpoint to avoid it!!"
