    I guess God needed to respond to one of those "tiny classified ads".

    Will his obituary be placed in tiny classified ads?

    If only he had done this in 2009 he could've been in that South Park episode.

    I'm going to post a THOOOOOOOUSAND Don Lapre obituaries in newspapers AAAALLLL across the country...from my TIIIIINNNNNNNYYYYY one bedroom apartment!

    His ads played every night on alot of cable channels in the 90's. And I would be too lazy to channel, so I memorized them pretty good.

    I used to watch his awful infomercials in the 90's when the Wings were dominating and life was good. I hated the way he talked. "These 8 things will bla bla bla" said in a douchy drawn out voice.

    Glad someone remembers... I did this bit for my wife, she acted like she had never heard it. Course, her bedtime is like 9.

    Ya know, I never really understood how it "works". You would place a bunch of classified ads in papers all across the country...and you'd make a small amount of money on each of them. But you've placed so many ads that the money adds up...somehow. I never got it. I was just too sucked in by his bizarre enunciations and tricky swaying camera tricks.
