Ya Don’t Gotta AFSCME Twice!

Because it’s Thursday (truly one of the tougher, more unappreciated days of the week) and because it’s always thrilling when a venerated classic from my bootleg tape-trading days resurfaces on Youtube, here’s a “blooper” gem from the vaults.

As legend has it, the voice-over talent for this regional PSA got bored and decided to record an “alternate” version. I totally picture him dressed like Walter Matthau’s character from The Taking of Pelham One-Two-Three and knocking back fifths of Chivas Regal while a golden retriever blows him under the table. UNION.

    “The fucking union that works for you.”

    Now THAT is a slogan. With talent like this how the unions in America ever lost their power is beyond me.

    “And we don’t take shit from nobody! Got that, asshole?”

    BWAHAHAHA! Thank you, Mer. It’s perfect timing, coming in the middle of a 30-second lull in a hellishly busy day, complete with attendant adrenaline rush! (Breaking stories woo!)

    They don’t make unions like they used to.

    Waaah. Johnny, thanks for catching that. Meant Walter Matthau, obviously. It’s all-too-easy to confuse those two broad-tie wearing curmudgeons (especially in the middle of the night).
