Looks like older Citi models, the prices seem meh, and I wouldn't bother. Glance if you're so inclined.

Damn skippy. If I want a Promaster, I want it handed to me by Pirini Scleroso.

SCTV was different, and it sure was funny. However, I've always said I'd run off with Pirini Scleroso - totally oblivious and always upbeat.conjurer wrote: ↑November 1st 2019, 10:14pmAn SCTV reference!

In it's day, from the late 1970s to the early 80s, SCTV, a comedy import from Canada, highlighted by plenty of soon-to-be bigs in the Laff Industry, like John Candy, Eugene Levy, Harold Ramis and, of course, Andrea Martin. Long before meta-humor became a thing, SCTV (which parodied a small town TV station), stacked jokes upon jokes until they ended up as a small Everest (!) of gags. For instance: Joe Flaherty did a mean Slim Whitman impression; and so, when SCTV did their bombshell Evita commercial spoof with Indira Gandhi (also played by Andrea Martin), they cast Flaherty as Punji Whitman:
Interestingly, way back when I was in college, I was tasked in writing some stuff for a proposed public access comedy show, tentatively titled The Urbana Subway. One of my ideas was this very gag, a parody of the Evita commercial--which played all over America and, I suppose, the Western World--featuring instead Indira Gandhi. This was before the SCTV parody ever aired (or, at least, before I saw it.) I'm glad to say that the SCTV version was far, far better than mine, which was never made, or aired.
