Inventor and advertiser Ron Popeil has died aged 86. He invented the Chop-o-Matic, the Electric Pasta Masker, the Burnt Toast Avoider, The Scrambled Egg Frying Equipment, and countless other bits of kitchen pap people who don’t need buy. His adverts including the catchphrase “wait, there’s more” as if you couldn’t believe quite what his latest labour saving chopping device could do. Chop food, I presume. He was a unique pick for Pretty Noose.
