Stupid Tuesday Questions: End of an Era Edition
There are certain ads you would see on the New York City subways. You would see these ads all the time. You would see these for decades.
Dr. Zizmor‘s medical practice was one of these ads. He was just a dermatologist. His ads were horrible and never changed. They always contained an MS Paint Rainbow and Dr. Zizmor used the same photo of himself for the last thirty or forty years.
I can’t think of a time on the subway without seeing a Doctor Zizmor ad but he is no more. He decided to retire suddenly, sell his home, and study Talmud. He is seventy years of age. He probably deserves it, but I feel a little sadder knowing that Dr. Zizmor’s cheesy ads will no longer grace the subways.
