“JUST LIKE A MINI MALL”

It isn’t the guy’s name, and he isn’t a blues singer, but Flea Market Montgomery would be the finest handle for a blues musician ever.

    1. I thought Blind Josh Orange Drop Mitsubishi was hard to top, but I think he’s done it.

    1. I thought rap was supposed to involve the clever use of language. Still, if it’s just like a mini mall, the urge to buy is overwhelming.

    1. That guy should get together with This guy…  I saw this a few years back when I found myself inexplicably watching TV at 2 in the morning in Las Vegas.  I wouldn’t ever be crazy enough to buy a car from this guy, but I imagine people watching TV at 2 in the morning in Vegas while drunk out of their skulls are a significant portion of this guy’s customer base…

    1. OT,
      People of Sydney, you’re doomed.

      Scientists predict that rainfall will fall by 40% by 2070, not only creating a massive water crisis, but producing double the number of bush fires.

      Heat-related deaths would soar from a current average of 176 a year to 1,300.

      Sydney would come to resemble the harsh, dry and inhospitable conditions of remote inland towns.

      And lots more from this “balanced” BBC report which ends thus:

      “Along with America, Australia has refused to sign the Kyoto Protocol, the only two major industrialised nations to do so.”

      You gotta love that “along with America” bit.

    1. Now I want to shop at Flea Market Montgomery.  Dunno what I’d do with the furniture though.  Pretty goddamn hideous…

    1. From now on and forevermore, I’m spending ALL of my dollars at Flea Market Montgomery. Why, I’m even going to MOVE to Montgomery so I can be close enough to Flea Market Montgomery to be sure and be 1st in line each and every morning when they open.

    1. There is something strange and sinister about this commercial. I can’t stop watching it, swaying to the rhytmic groove, and chanting “Go futon, go davenport, go drop-leaf…”
      I say Good On Sammy Stephens (Chaises be upon him!). Any guy that’s got the sack to make something like that is OK in my book.

    1. Mundine could learn something from this guy.

      Hey, Mundine’s a moozo now isn’t he?

      What the hell is his moozo name, or was he just bullshitting as usual????

    1. Natasha Spot-Destroyer was rabbiting on about Mahommed Daewoo tonight, but, she was calling him David Hicks.

      Does he subscribe to the same school of Islam as Anthony Mundine???

    1. #10: Scientists predict that rainfall will fall by 40% by 2070, not only creating a massive water crisis, but producing double the number of bush fires.

      Heat-related deaths would soar from a current average of 176 a year to 1,300.

      If there are double the number of fires one year wouldn’t this mean there is a lot less stuff to burn the next year…and the next?

      And heat related deaths to ‘soar’ to 1300…from memory about 10,000 died here in France a few years ago during a very short heat wave during summer. All of this warming but with less than 15% of European deaths? We’re a sunburnt country but not a dying one.

    1. That guy looks like the financial officer of my university.  He wore suits just like that, except they were in colors like royal blue and candy apple red and even eggyolk yellow.  I don’t know if he was as musically gifted, but I certainly wouldn’t have bought a car from him.

      A poetry grant
