Actually in our case it was more like 20 seconds of fame. The Jaimster and I met the Sham WOW guy at an art fair in the LA area a few weeks ago. Anyone ever seen him. He sells Sham Wow's on TV. They really work great. They soak up 100 times their weight in liquids. They work well....Better of course when he demonstrates them. We got along well with the Sham Wow people and ended up starring in a infomercial. If you are up late at night and you see a Sham Wow commercial with 2 guys; a big guy and a little guy that look like us; it's the Jaimster and I. We got a bunch of Sham Wows and a couple of food mincers for our efforts. It was fun. Sure hope we don't let fame go to our heads.....lol...

I saw a photo of the Sham Wow guy on Fox News the other day. He was hand cuffed to a hospital bed and looked like he had been beaten to a bloody pulp. Seems that he had enlisted  the services of a hooker who he got into an arguement with. The result was that they beat each other up and were arrested. Fame sure is fleeting. Not sure what to tell the Jaimster.  Even less sure what to tell his mother....LMAO

Just received the following e-mail. Looks as though my 15 minutes of fame lives on.....lol ""Hi Bill, I had dinner with Mike last night and long story bearable, out of nowhere he looked at me and said, ?Were Bill and Jaime in an infomercial? I swear I saw them on TV the other night?? I was HOWLING! I asked if it was an ad for the Super Shammy (aka Super Scammy) and indeed it appears as though they?re using your footage. Thought you?d get a good laugh. Happy Thursday. Karol""

Don't let Bill fool you. I see his picture at the post office all the time. I guess some woman posted his picture because she likes him so much. At least it said WANTED. lololol

I always thought the 15 minutes of fame was just a hoax. Glad to see you got yours... I got mine when I lost a penny. The news went world wide and I had to quit answering the phone. I even had one of the Sheiks want to buy it if I was to find it. You would believe all the phone calls I received. I truely believe that real people get their 15 minutes of fame. Good for you Bill. Don't let it all go to your head.

People may not remember what you say or do, but they will remember how you made them feel.

Bill: You and Jaimster are like the "Dynamic Duo". I'm not surprised they picked you both for an infomercial. You've got STAR quality! *HUGS* _Honey
