Pun Salad is three years old today. Hope you're having as much fun reading as I am writing.
Our web logs continually show that many, many people come here looking for Cathy Poulin. Hence, we are today declaring Cathy to be the unofficial (and, more important, unpaid) mascot of Pun Salad.
For the uninitiated: Cathy appears often in TV ads
for Bob's Discount Furniture in New England, New Jersey, and New York,
usually as Bob's even-more-annoying sidekick. (Although Cathy is
a very nice
person in real life, not annoying at all.)
I can't find an actual
ad, but here's an engaging parody. The actress has Cathy's timing and
hand gestures down pat:
Video removed at some time since 2008. Sigh. But I found one with Real Cathy:
She's not very annoying there. Or maybe I've just grown accustomed.
Google also, by the way, has Pun Salad on the first page for hold me like you did by the lake on naboo so long ago when there was nothin but our love no politics no plotting no war.
