I used to love watching these "Retailtain
ments" or "Entertailments" as you called them. When I was a young boy, I would spend a day downtown Chicago and the highlight of the day at Woolworths Five and Ten (besides a piece of pizza for lunch) was watching the demonstrations.
Choppers, slicers, dicers. Some 50+ years ago I watched the same "Ever Sharp" demonstration. I wonder if they are using a new hammer? One year, I did buy a slicer, dicer, shredder, chopper ... with the set of knives thrown in ... and a free recipe book ... with a life time guarantee ... for my mother as a Mother's Day gift.
In thinking about it, I wonder if she really appreciated my gift considering I was giving her more tools with which she could cook for and take care of us. She accepted graciously.
