Feelin’ Nerdy.


Spring is in the air, here, in good ol’ Cream City, or as one of my nerdy pals likes to call it, “Old Milwaukee.” I think just for Ss & Gs, we should crank it up one more notch and call it, “Ye Olde Milwaukee.” Things always sound so much older when you put a “Ye” in the front, and an “E” after the “D.” Hells, yeah. Incidentally, there used to be a place down the road from me called, “Ye Olde Dinner Bell.” That place was so olde, I’m surprised I can even remember it. Ah, well. Seeing as how today is Friday, I thought I would have a little fun with Ye Olde Creative Beasts. Hunted for some viddies of some of the worst (or best, depending on how you look at it) local TV ads ever made. I couldn’t find the Milwaukee ones I was hoping for (anybody got Doc’s Fine Jewelers?), but here are a few fun ones nevertheless, along with my 1-5 star rating:


3 Stars.


Pretty frickin’ awesome. 4 Stars.

And this guy… Rudy. How could you not buy a car from him? Or get a pap smear? He’s adorable!

Ciento por ciento, excellente. 5 stars.

Okay, well, that’s about all the time we have today, Creative Beasts. Go on and get your nerd on. Happy Spring, Via con Dios and/or SEIZE THE PREY.

    Hi Trish, It was nice talking with you at the Portrait Society Gallery on Saturday. Your blog is funny. The commercials, very original. Fred

    OMG, Rudy the car salesman reminds me of a certain someone in my bro’s extended family LOL! HILARIOUS! Speaking of funny, Ye olde Atomic Benji and I were having a reminisce-session today and he came across some of your drawings (Papa Squat and Conspiracy Theorist). 1) I think you should post some of your drawings on CB and 2) I want one. I feel left out. Ben is a dirty little drawing hoarder.

    Michele! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love you! Yes, of course, I will make you a drawing. Y’know, I have thought about posting my ‘toons… thanks for the encouragement, as always. You, me and Dirty Benji are going for tacos and ‘ritas–soon–it is way past due! Expect to hear from me, like, tonight. 😉
