I saw this last night and at first thought it was a real ad. It was a hilarious sketch.

All of these appliances would fit nicely on the back of a monster truck! 


The other sketch I liked was this one, and I would watch this if it were for real!  Hoping it's OK to post in this thread instead of on DL:

I think this one will go down as one of the classic SNL skits. Even my kids were laughing so hard tears came to their eyes. And they were supposed to be in bed, usually they sneak out and hide behind the furniture and try to not laugh. Definitely one of the funniest things we’ve seen in a long time and we have been watching SNL every week since we first got married. There may be an F- for the efficiency rating but they got an A+ on the comedy.

there is so much wrong, yet so much right about that skit....

yet should be somewhat a reality....not all stay at home husbands are whipped pansy ass wimps...

without jumping into Tim Allen's 'More Power'....but sometimes that is exactly what you want....MORE POWER...something a little more heavy duty, built a little bit stronger....

these guys are similar to what ServPro hires around here....that was a bit of a shock, guys built like this to come clean your house.....

I used to do that when I was a kid. My parents would put me to bed and I would sneak out, crawl down the hall and hide behind the couch and watch The Groucho Marx Show You bet your life.

Too funny your kids do that too.

I did that too when I was a little kid, but at the drive in movies. When my Dad was still alive we used to go to the drive in movies a couple of times a month. They always showed at least two movies, sometimes three, and the “adult” movies were shown last, when the kinder were supposed be a sleep in the backseat. I would stay awake for the duration, and be quiet as a church mouse, I didn’t want to miss a moment, or get caught watching! I watched “Giant”, “Niagara”, “River Of No Return”, “The Apartment”, “Mogambo”, this way to name a few.

Then, as soon as the car would start for the trip home after the last movie, I would fall asleep for the trip home. My Dad would carry all three of us kids into the house and put us to bed.

Dear Canadians: I Downloaded the Video...

...but I don't have an option to post the .mp4 here.

I tried posting to Facebook, but I got a message telling me that the video is blocked because of ownership rights.

Well, I have the .mp4 on my desktop.

When I click on the link, the screen appears with my Google email and password. Does this appear to anyone else? I have uploaded the file, and set the setting to share the file publicly. Obviously, I don't want everyone to see my email and password. Let me know what you see. Thanks.

The link resolves to ...// and just opens my own Google drive.  I don't see your username or password or anything unusual.

If only GE made vacuum cleaners and electric ride-on mowers again...

WOW... not many people remember the ElecTrac..

A guy I knew in the next town over had one. I did use it one day to help him out and that machine was cool. He gave it away to some nut who I hope restored it. Now those are almost as rare as Hen's Teeth.

Surely the mower I “promised” to buy for myself!

daveamkrayoguy's profile picture
I saw an ad once for the General Electric riding mower and that made owning a riding lawn mower AND an electric look so easy—in fact it probably didn’t matter what size property you had, if it held a charge for anything big (or would the cord reach? Maybe I don’t remember that much about it, or read that much to take deeply to heart to this day)...
