Look, it’s George Washington selling cars

You know what really annoys me? When they use dead famous figures in commercials. Usually they’ll use dead presidents or some famous figure like Albert Einstein, in car or furniture commercials. I understand they’re observing something. Like presidents day, or 4th of July. Whatever. Do they really think that some schmuck is going to go: “Ben Franklin, is he still alive?”

Yeah, dead president impersonations piss me off.

I like dead presidents on C-notes…
They def’nilly get my VOTE.

I must say tho- I do love it when they get the cartoon dollar bill presidents to talk, all nutcracker style.

It gets me every time.

My first time here (came in through Budda’s blog). Just catching up on some of your posts (especially yesterday about Philly drivers). But nobody (and I mean nobody) can beat us Masshole drivers.
