Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, July 31, 2021

Grab the world by the throat and browbeat it into four low monthly payments ... The Mozart of this method is no more. RIP, Ron Popeil, maestro of the late-night infomercial, Edison of the ersatz, who died July 28 in Los Angeles at 86. His survivors include untold thousands of plastic food dehydrators, vegetable slicers and vacuum-powered ashtrays moldering on basement shelves and in the far reaches of kitchen cupboards across the land.

Best parody ever on SNL was Dan Ackroyd with the Bassomatic. "Best bass I ever drank."

I loved the jerky machine/food dehydrator. The only downside is it took too long. It was a good product worth the money and he was a hell of a marketer.

For those who remember the great Neil Rogers, he was a friend of Ron's and had him on his show several times. They guy was perfectly fine laughing about his over the top style and seemed like a very likable person.
