      In the 1990s a local meat market in Central Texas said this on their radio commercial: "Others may beat our prices but Nobody Beats Our Meat!" This commercial aired for several months and I laughed every time I heard it.

          From Friday’s New York Times, a correction to an article about a wedding:
          Correction: Jan. 24, 2020

          In an earlier version of this article, the given name of the actress who introduced the couple was misspelled. She is Vaishnavi Sharma, not Vaishmavi. The given name of the wedding officiant was also misspelled. She is Gabra Zackman, not Dabra. Also, the author of “Dracula” was incorrect. He is Bram Stoker, not Jane Austen.
          That’s right: the Times employs a reporter, and presumably at least one editor, who thought Jane Austen was the author of Dracula!

            30 some odd years ago in Abilene Texas one of the radio stations did a spoof commercial for the Hiny Winery. It was supposedly located next to the convention center in Clyde Texas. People drove through Clyde asking where the Hiny Winery was and if they didn't know they would then ask for the convention center. Neither one existed.

              Googled it, apparently the creator revived Hiney Wine as an actual wine, they are still creative with their commercials. https://brutalhammer.com/the-legend-of-hiney-wine/

              If memory serves me right, there was a Detroit dude, Dick Puritan who ran with the Hiney wine back in the early 80’s. The fella from Texas sold the idea to radio stations all over the US. It was a gas! Not that the wine made you gassy, cuz it was a fine Hiney wine, but some of the ads were funny.

            Not exactly legitimate news, but they've got the whole sattire thing figured out. They are very "the onion" -esque.

              "No, no one is dead," President Xi assured the media. "We have completely cured everything." The communist dictator claimed they have cured the virus using sheep's bladders, which they also use to prevent earthquakes. His scientists also discovered the earth to be banana-shaped.

              That's not political, that's HILARIOUS! For the rest of my life, from time to time, I'm going to burst out laughing at random, inappropriate times. When the people around me ask, "Watchoolaffinat?" I'll say,,,

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            the good one grill

            The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
