An entertainment reviewer wannabe in a clown outfit, uses a voice wanting to emulate the style of Mae West without the sex appeal or sophistication.

Somehow selected to speak for Sleep Train, leaves me with none of the motivation, either rest or sexual, to even be interested in visiting a mattress.

Now folks, we are more screwed than we thought we were.
