RIP Ron Popeil

#1 Post by silverscreenselect » Wed Jul 28, 2021 10:19 pm

Founder of Ronco and inventor of many gadgets including the Veg-o-Matic and the Pocket Fisherman. Popeil was better known for his "but wait, there's more" infomercials for his products than for the products themselves.

Age 86

Rumor has it that he'll be run through a Vegimatic instead of being cremated.

Anyone who's actually seen the commercials knows it is a "Veg-O-Matic." Great joke, too! Both tasteless and unfunny! Did you make this one up yourself?
