It slices
It dices
It turns a sandwich into a banquet

But wait, there's more...

There was an entertaining essay on NPR this morning about the Popeils and Ronco, the people who brought their country-fair sales pitches into the American consciousness through the medium of television. Unfortunately for those who weren't listening, despite pretty pictures, the article on the web-site is not nearly as entertaining as the radio essay. It was great hearing Bob Edwards, then Ron Popeil, then Dan Aykroyd (remember the bass-o-matic?) deliver their pitches.

I'll have to dig out that old pocket fisherman...
