You have no place in St. Louis, Tom Shayne Tom Shayne

There are certain things out there that everyone’s gonna recognize, things that’re gonna resonate with everybody. And, I think one that most people have in common is that they can’t stand these Tom Shayne Diamond Business—Now You Have a Friend in the Diamond business commercials. They are the absolute worst.

I remember that, ah, the summer after my freshman year in college the Shayne Company was movin’ out here and, ah, they advertise a lot with the Cardinals so it’s always on KMOX, and, ah, Adam Schwartz, who hails from Denver, Colorado, and, ah, another guy, Wil Neely, who comes from the West Coast—San Jose area—both had, ah, voiced their displeasure with the migration of Shayne, or the spread of Shayne Company to out here, cause they, ah, bemoan the commercials, too.

And I, I don’t think you could find many people who like the Tom Shayne commercials. What I like to do is just find some of these smaller things, like the Shayne Company, ya know? People think to themselves, “Man, I hate these fucking Shayne Company commercials.” Or maybe they don’t think it to themselves, and it’s more of a subconscious thing. But, when you say it to someone, they realize that they, too, have had that same thought at some point. And they catch it, ya know, it catches their attention, and you’ve succeeded in, ah, communicating your displeasure w/ the Tom Shayne Company. So, I don’t know if there’s a story in that, but, ya know…


St. Louis and its baseball town. Mm-hm. That’s the only good thing St. Louis has goin’ for it. That’s how pathetic St. Louis really is.

Craig Paquette is eloquent. Umm, and I DO NOT KNOW what I was just about to say. The Cardinals suck. Oh, to end my story, as they say, on the commercials: it’s definitely a baseball town. That’ll kind of sum up the whole thing, right? Mm. Ouch. Tough one for the Cards tonight, boys. Hn-hn-hn-hm.

Ray said, “Heh. Heh. Title, for a baseball story? You Have No Place in Baseball Jose Lima Jose Lima.”

You know, it was just one of those days where I couldn’t help but stop to … take out the trash on-a my way out the door.
