A Truly "Dirty Job"

I’ve been working on lots of good (hopefully) stuff for work and also on a longer post of some importance… but a distraction is needed. Sent to me by the lovely Gail, it’s Mike Rowe, of Discovery Channel’s “Dirty Jobs,” in 1992, selling stuff (to put it nicely) on QVC…

Holy. Hilarious. Batman. Anyone feel like he and John Stewart had the same hair in the 90s?  There are a bunch of these videos well worth watching, including the lava lamp and Mike singing “My Way.”  Just as entertaining then as he is today.

Okay, off to finally see Star Trek! I’ll be in Philly all next week, including the Penn&Teller show at Harrah’s in Atlantic City on Saturday night. It’s a skeptic meetup, donchaknow? For the Skeptics in CVille, don’t forget there’s a meeting Saturday to plan upcoming events and talk about the future direction for our group.

    Jesus! At least he’s well qualified to speak about “dirty jobs.” Not such a precious moment for him, I suspect. More likely something he’d want to forget.

    Thanks.

    And before he did that he was an opera singer :-D A very good one, he sang professionally with the Baltimore opera. Hes pretty much my hero…all hail Mike Rowe! haha :-D

    He could handle scraping roadkill and scraping out boats without the help of drugs, but it sounds like he had a little help for this one. ;)

    I lurked on the P&T message board a while ago. I remember one posting about how Teller always visits the Mutter Museum when he’s in Philly. I haven’t been yet, but you should check it out while you’re there. It seems pretty awesome. Medicine has come so far…
