Whenever I am ready to throw a shoe through the computer monitor, I am reminded of a scene from a Clark Gable movie, The Hucksters.

Sidney Greenstreet plays an overbearing soap tycoon berating his advertising people about his philosophy of advertising.

At one point, to make his point, he spits up a big hocker onto the boardroom table. Everyone else in the room is visibly horrified and disgusted.

Sidney goes on to say, as he wipes up the hocker with a handkerchief, [paraphrased], "Gentlemen! What you have seen me do here today is disgusting, but you will always remember it."

That movie was made in 1947. I probably saw it in a third run movie house in 1950. In the 54 intervening years, I have never forgotten that moment.

I guess a lot of the folks who put annoying ads on the internet subscribe to Sidney's philosophy.
