I really miss many of the great sponsors from the past. Will you ever resurrect such greats as Raw Bits, Bertha's Kitty Boutique, Bigger Hammer Hardware, Worst-Case Scenarios and Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery? I know I wouldn't qualify for Raw Bits, but my son is a good kid and might do so someday, and it would be wonderful to hear some new (or old!) spots for those great sponsors.
What can I say? Writing comedy isn't carpentry and there comes a day when you sit down to write humorously about cats and you simply can't do it. So you don't. You move on. Some things prove durable and others don't. We live with uncertainty. But your memory is better than mine, Steve. I had forgotten all about Raw Bits, (Listen) and now I can't quite remember what the premise was. Bertha's has returned now and then. Worst Case Scenarios sort of transmogrified into Bebopareebop Rhubarb Pie. Ralph's is still in Lake Wobegon. Bigger Hammer? Are you sure that was on our show?
