TV marketing is a lucrative business because Vince Shlomi lives large. The Smoking Gun gives us a glimpse of a day in the life of Mr. ShamWow...

ShamWow Guy In Slap, Chop Bust: TV Pitchman Battered Hooker In South Beach Hotel Room Brawl

They don't make TV pitchmen like Ron Popeil anymore.

Well at least it wasn't Billy Mayes the other pitchman. My daughter bought some Sham Wows when her washer overflowed. They did help. Maybe he should have Sham Wowed himself out of trouble?

Yes, I like Ron much better. Billy Mays yells at me and I don't like that. This guy looks like my friendly neighborhood crack maniac.Did you know "Attack of the Show" did a test to see if Billy Mays's Zorbies could beat Sham Wow guy's towel? Yep, Sham Wow won. But they say that both products stink like wet dogs when used. Gross.

There's probably no "morality clause" in his contract.

Then there's that irritating swine with the dark hair named Billy Mays. His voice just drives me mad each time I hear him. I wish that wind tunnel would just suck him into the fan blades.

Makes me regret the woeful under-utilization of my own vast obnoxiousness.

Look at the possibilities.

I can't believe he gets away with saying, "You know those Germans make good stuff." Or something to the like.

Wow, how sleazy.

Pop quiz theoretical: Cage fight between Danny Bonaduce and Mr. ShamWow?

Jill: Billy Mays is annoying, but he was the first to peddle OxiClean, which is a great product.

Ananda: I didn't know they smelled bad. I'm never buying them now.

BTW do Billy Mays's Zorbies come from Greece?

Jan: Nope. Morality doesn't seem to be Shlomi's forte.

Steve Harkonnen: Those fan blades would spit Billy back out ;-)

QQ: lol! You should find a way to make you obnoxiousness pay ;-)

Chuck: I wouldn't be surprised to hear about drugs in Shlomi's life. He seems to be on coke or uppers.

Brooke: He'll say anything to sell his product.

Citizen of the world: Sleazy, indeed, but he has good aim. I love how he throws the ompetitor's chopper-thingy into the sink without even looking. I wonder how many takes that took to film?

DaBlade: That is no contest. Bonaduce would rip him into pieces just large enough to fit in the Slap/Chop and finely dice him.

You scooped me by a day. That's IT. I'm gonna have to play hardball and start blogging about cats and politics now.

That just makes me laugh to think about it. You can't make that stuff up!

My verification word is "unpole," which I imagine happened pretty quickly with all the biting and slapping around...
