At the end of 2018, a study was published by London Metropolitan University showing that certain bacteria, normally present only in intestinal tracts or feces, were found on McDonald's self-service screens.




Ron Popeil, the legendary inventor, salesman and informercial guy, passed away today at the age of 86.

He sold poo poo on TV as early as the mid 1950's. My grandmother's kitchen was full of his products.

RIP to a legend. Here's some of the ads for things he or his companies sold. My favorite one has to be the Mr. Microphone.
