Slappy Mike and Gumbo Jim

The Macalope has been on the last few weeks. Here is a part that had me rolling from June 30th (emphasis mine):

If you want to relive the good times when RIM was still funny, The Guardian has a collection of the best (read: worst) quotes from RIMs former co-CEOs, Slappy Mike and Gumbo Jim or whatever their names were (tip o’ the antlers to BoingBoing). They all read like something from the pages of Extreme Denial! magazine. Here’s the Macalope’s favorite:

Wait for it.

…May 2008.

Way to capture whatever the opposite of zeitgeist is, Mike. Bra. Vo.
