Humorous door-to-door reminisces?

[TANGENT WARNING]
Anybody remember that thread with the reminisces about the various door-to-door salespeople that didn't exist? I'm trying to remember one or two of them so I can look the thread up. I don't remember any, but it was along the lines of "Scott the Fissionable Nuclear Materials Man".

Well, there was "Cliff, the Disturbing Nude Photos of Ernest Borgnine Guy" and who could forget "Snappy, the Gelatinous Substance Man?"

Phew! I thought this was a thread warning us against creating tangents. I'd be kicked off for sure.

This fetish you have for Ernest Borgnine is what's disturbing. :dontknow:

I remember, back in South

I remember, back in South Carolina, we had Eugene, the harelipped harmonica player who did door to door fatback and chitterlings sales. His harmonica playing wasn't all that impressive but he sure had some tasty pork products. I don't understand why fatback is so underutilized in the North. It's very tasty fried or as a seasoning for all sorts of beans. Does cat food contain pork? I bet it does because they seem to like it so much and who doesn't like pork. Speaking of betting, what's the latest on Sugar House? I heard it was on hold. I suppose there must be a new thread. What was I saying? OH, nevermind.

I didn't grow up in the South, but every town had its Eugene. Ours just happened to be name Samantha.

She didn't have a cleft palate, but at least a few times every year she would be in a rush to get to work and get a run in her stocking. She didn't play the harmonica, but she was on the cheerleading squad when she was in high school. She didn't sell fatback and chitterlings, but she did become vice president of international sales for a Fortune 500 company less than 7 years after she finished her MBA at Wharton. She didn't go door to door, but there was a big parking lot at her office, which was about a 45 minute drive from our town.

So, yeah, Samantha was our Eugene - it's a universal experience.
