One of the only highlights of the five or six minutes I spent watching the horrible American Inventor reality contest was watching George Foreman, as one of the show’s judges, give equitable plaudits to almost every horrible idea trotted up on the stage. Despite “creating” the George Foreman grill, it was clear the man couldn’t smell a successful design if it socked him in the nose.
Now in a bizarre follow-up to the massively successful George Foreman model, former heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield will be shilling an electric grill of his own, tantalizingly named the “Evander Holyfield Real Deal Grill.” Even Holyfield isn’t quite sure what makes his CriTran Corp.-produced grill so special:
“I’ve got a George Foreman grill. It’s a good grill,” Holyfield, 44, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “But don’t you think the latest grill is supposed to be the best grill?”
My cast-iron skillet says—I’m so sorry for this—talk to the pan.*
Would also accept “Kiss the pan. Pan kisses you.” or “These scientists left the space program to devote their lives to creating pans.”
