    Smiling Bob ain't smiling now

    A business owner convicted of defrauding customers seeking male sexual enhancement products and a variety of herbal supplements was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years in prison.

    The company's main product, Enzyte, which promises sexual enhancement, has ads featuring "Smiling Bob," a happy man with an exaggerated smile.

    Re: Smiling Bob ain't smiling now

    Yeah it does seem ironic, but my name made sense way back when I had my sig referencing the classis western line in Die Hard, but was forcibly removed because it wasn't family friendly (and I did have it bleeped).

    Sweet... no more smiling bob commercials... entertaining as they were the first time through, I got real sick of them...

    Though "Natural Selection" just took a hit here...

    Re: Smiling Bob ain't smiling now

    I wonder if "Smiling Bob's" defrauded customers realize their names are now part of the public record?


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).

    Re: Smiling Bob ain't smiling now

    I like this part of the article:

    Warshak's mother, Harriet Warshak, was sentenced to two years in prison. She was convicted of conspiracy and other charges ... blah blah blah ... She had pleaded with the judge not to send her to prison. "I have grandchildren," she said. "The time I have left, I'd like to spend with them. I don't think it's fair to take me away from them."

    Do the crime do the time ... I don't care about age or granchildren, lock her law breaking arse up.

    This guy better hope that his fellow inmates didn't purchase his product. That could make things real "uncomfortable" for him.
