So let's share some of the corny scripts we've all had to tackle. Those kinds that are so hokey, even your golden pipes can't overcome the cheese factor. Laugh

I did this one a few days ago:

"It's time to get happy.....WHEELIE happy!
At Performance Tire, we can make you WHEELIE happy!
And we promise....you won't RETREAD it".


Wow....

And what's scary is someone probably spent hours writing what they consider to be a masterpiece. I've voiced a few of those.

Yikes! That's corn with a side of cheese. Haven't had one of those cross my plate yet.

...and were you "Under Pressure" to read it?

hahahaha oh hahahaha.

Normally I'd apologize for adding to the pun-pile, but not in this case.

Thank you! And no, I've never had to read anything that corn ball. But if it pays...I'm a money slut. Bring it on!

I'm sure stuff like that stays in ROTATION.

The worst one I ever had was:

"Capn' Jack's Fish Sticks
Flash frozen and fresh from the fishin' fleet."
