Too bad that joke is lost on anyone born after 1975.

Can we get a confirmation on whether it was "rich Corinthian leather" or "fine Corinthian leather"? We need to settle this debate once and for all.
2004-05-05 09:47:48 PM  
Smiles, everyone, smiles.

2004-05-05 09:56:15 PM

OK, Mr. Bunny...This quote has something to do with the part of Mody Dick where the whale eats 'im?

/More confused than ever

just having fun.

damn. no one can post anything
without the nitpickers chewing it up.

2004-05-05 10:18:09 PM  
Just for the record, no credit thanks; nothing was said in Moby Dick that couldn't've been said in a 50 page version...other than that Herman Melville was a VERY angry homosexual. Finally got the fine corinthian leather thing, thanks to Galland's tip, I think. I'm guessing Ricardo Montalban used to shill the Cordoba?
2004-05-05 10:19:55 PM  
Uh, buntz, maybe I'm spacing, but what play was that in?
2004-05-05 10:20:54 PM  

you DO read once in awhile right?


i don't have the bard's version.
could you email me a link where
i could buy it. that would be earthshakingly
2004-05-05 10:21:50 PM  
LOL, Shakespeare didn't hate the world NEARLY enough to write Moby Dick.
2004-05-05 10:23:05 PM

"Too bad that joke is lost on anyone born after 1975."

Screw you budday! I was born in 1976 and know exactly what the joke is.
2004-05-05 11:18:40 PM  
I have owned several of those cars. They are one of the best sleepers you can buy...and cheap! Most of the old B body chasis parts and engine parts can be made to work with little-to-no modifications. Great cars, IMHO.

But I always remember the commercial saying "Rich Corientian Leather." The print ads said "Fine Corintian Leather."

Mine always had "Cracked Corintian Leather."
2004-05-05 11:19:35 PM  

/too late and too tired

//doesn't get the fine corinthian leather reference, born in 1980
2004-05-05 11:33:32 PM  
How many fine, rich Corinthians does it take to upholster one Cordoba? How much longer is this senseless slaughter going to continue? When will we as a civilized nation stand up and say, "No more wasteful killing for car seats!"?

In protest, all of my upholstery has always been from the Nauga. There are tons of those running rampant in the hills, and using them helps keep their populations in check. They are as close to a renewable resource as you'll find in upholstery, and the meat and sinews can be used to feed the poor and make twine for the...people that...need...twine?

Quien es mas macho? Fernando Lamas... o... Ricardo Montalban? Quien es mas macho, Seor Lamas... o... Montalbaaaaaan?
2004-05-05 11:36:05 PM  
Is it because Ricardo Montalbans face is made out of rich Corinthian leather?
2004-05-05 11:36:08 PM  
xkenny13 Bastard. Ya beat me to it. I read the headline and all I could think of was that scene from Free Enterprise where they're all in the bar and just do the "KAAAAAAHNNN" thing. Classic.
2004-05-05 11:38:52 PM  
any Negativland fans out there?
2004-05-05 11:40:49 PM  
Yep, the commercials had him saying "rich" not "fine".

You know there had to be one out there!

And.... BIBLES!!!

He better make sure he keeps Lt. Frank Drebin of Police Squad away from Opening Night!

My name is Ricardo Montalban. You killed my leather. Prepare to die.

/got nothing
2004-05-06 01:02:13 AM  
Of course, he also plays Junior Senior on Kim Possible
/has two preteen daughters.

//STILL......ALIVE.......OLD FRIEND....!!!!

///could have sworn it was RICH Corinthian Leather.
2004-05-06 01:47:16 AM  
How KHAAAAAAAAAAN! the article not mention his famous "Star Trek" role?

FYI for SoCal Farkers, the Ricardo Montalban theatre is on 1615 N. Vine St, south of Hollywood Blvd, corner Selma.

Ya I learned not to care what people thought on the stuff I watch as long as they don't really know why I watch it.

/Really likes Christy Romano
//REALLY likes her

Cor'-do-ba = Spanish pronunciation

Cor-dOh'-ba = Gringo marketroid pronunciation

Ricardo said it properly at first. The marketing people "corrected" him into saying it wrong.
