Have coffee TV commercials gone extinct? Shocking! Positively shocking. And what ever happened to the percolator?

And finally, Larry recites an amazing poem, "The House With Nobody In It" by Joyce Kilmer. Quote of the Week: "Is Bob Gaelic there?" Producer: Colonel Jeff Fox
Larry ponders the magic of dogs. They are sweet and cuddly one minute, then scrapping brawlers the next. Also, the cuteness and lack of durability of dog toys is lost on Larry. Ever wonder what happens when a blonde speeder is pulled over by a blonde cop? And when is it too soon to think about going back to school? And congrats to Ollie Dungmeister, foreman of Volcano #2! He's retiring after 50 years of happy service! http://LarryMillerShow.com
