Just give us a line and we’re addicted
For a limited time only, take this column to any store that sells canned hams for $ 9.99 and they will sell you canned ham for only $ 9.99.
Act quickly. An offer like this cannot last forever.
Once all the canned hams are gone, they’re gone.
We are suckers for sales.
Coca-Cola is on sale from Eisenhower. When are we going to wake up and realize that the selling price of Coca-Cola is the price of Coca-Cola?
Ditto with automobiles. When was the last time you saw an ad stating that the cars were sold at MSRP?
Manufacturer’s suggested retail price does not exist. Like my second honeymoon.
Coupons ? None for me, thank you.
Neither are sales. I am not looking for sales, I am waiting for sales, I am waiting for sales.
Money, the elusive spondulix, means different things to different people.
Former Colorado Avalanche goaltender Philipp Grubauer recently signed a six-year, $ 35.4 million contract with the Seattle Kraken.
The salaries of the National Hockey League, the National Football League, the National Basketball League and the Major League Baseball are crazy.
The same goes for college football and basketball head coaches.
Nick Saban, Alabama, does … you don’t want to know.
Some people have more money than they know what to do with it. Or they get someone to make a spaceship for them and take off, wearing a cowboy hat, just like Slim Pickens did in “Dr. Strange Love.”
“Dr. Strangelove” is what’s called a dark comedy. It is a 1964 film that stars Peter Sellers, who appears in three main roles. He was nominated for Best Actor but lost to Rex Harrison, who starred in George Bernard Shaw’s horrific adaptation of “Pygmalion” titled “My Fair Lady”.
Audrey Hepburn, who trained for her role as a singer in the film, was furious when the decision was made to dub most of her songs (by Marni Nixon), was nominated for Best Actress, but lost face to Julie Andrews who starred in “Mary Poppins”, another movie that Harry and I successfully avoid.
Dorothy Parker said: “I don’t know much about being a millionaire, but I bet I would be my sweetheart.”
I met a millionaire once.
He said, “I don’t need a lot of money, but I have a lot.
He said, “It’s easier to make a million dollars than to paint a good picture. “
It never occurred to me that I would make a million, make a million, or inherit a million.
I belong to a valiant group which calls itself Starving Artists. We’re not really starving, but when we compare our income to that of Philipp Grubauer and Nick Saban and some of those Hollywood stars, we feel like we’re starving.
When I was a kid, a quarter was a lot of money. My grandmother sent me a dollar for my birthday. It was the Comstock vein.
Before she died, she gave me a hundred dollars. It would have been an incomprehensible amount to spend when I was a boy, but less now than it costs for a plumber to cross my threshold.
Don’t forget your canned ham.
