Any chance we can mix the two?
Could be some interesting opportunities there.
"876-HOOT-NOW"  for starters. ?   Tongue

Very assumptive of you...sometimes it is something totally different. You have to care enough to ask.

Of course.
It was just a suggestion...maybe, like...oh...."Whatever happened to AngMcP?". Something I know because I care about our members and, well, heck - sometimes they answer back.
Sometimes they'll surprise you.

Very true...the "wise old owl" is extremely played out!

Either a British accent or you have the grumpy sarcastic one from America's Best.

This TripAdvisor ad with the "WOOOO!" in the beginning and end drives me nuts!

^^^You might consider sending Hooty a PM or email with a link to the owl mash-up. That is pretty cute.

8.) Then I wanna kill little mister know-it-owl and feed it to the pigs, who will eat anything and leave no evidence
 
 
 
Too much effort.
I just want to throw the TripAdvisor Owl into the running jet engine of a 747.
Yeah... that ought to do quite nicely, I should think.
 
 
How could anyone hate owls so much?

The Zyxal commercials were a bit much, with the highly stylized 'classy' owl with a British accent. "Wise all with Zyxal"?
I'm familiar with the WGU commercials, too. A little too silly.
HOWEVER, you hit the nail on the head with the Zyxal ads - they only showed for a short time, here...but even that was too long.
 
Aaaaaaand, by the way - what a pleasant 'blast from the past'! Great to see you back, Geezer - hope to see you more often. Hope this finds You & Yours at only the best.

Check out the last video aka ron posted in the first post of this thread.


Totally missed that. Guess I'm not so wise!


Now, now.

Your simple oversight could've happened to the wisest of wise owls.

Who?? Who??

Wasn't that wise old owl really Charles Nelson Reilly? Yep.
