For Sunday: A man argues with his own stomach

man arguing with stomach


I thought that, since getting a feeding tube implanted in my stomach, this might be appropriate. This is a very funny Alka-Seltzer commercial from 1967, featuring a man arguing with his own stomach (voiced by a young Gene Wilder), and drawn by the clever R. O. Blechman.

Listen to the rapid angry dialogue, if you can. It’s wonderful. “You always hated my mother!”

    Oh I enjoyed that one very much, thank you. It is true, we do abuse our stomachs sometimes. Here is your chance to be kind to it!
