The late comedian and humorist, Lewis Grizzard wrote in one of his columns in 1993 about his disdain for the lowering of standards of advertising on television stations in the Atlanta area. He made a list of his most despised television commercials which included automobiles, cereals, feminine hygiene products, diarrhea and constipation, perfume and cologne, pet food, and hair commercials.
Using his gift of sarcasm, he attacked the content of each commercial that led to his dislike of being exposed to each product. The legal community was not spared from his distaste.
“Every ambulance chaser in the county has his or her television commercial. The law firm of Loophole and Whiplash will sue anyone, living or dead, for the low, low cost of $29.95 (or 33 1/3%).” “Judge Wapner is our first cousin by the way and we’ve read all the John Grisham novels. Trust us.”
Lewis would have loved the “Texas Law Hawk” or “Charles Pitman” or the “Best of the Best!”
