G. Gordon Liddy Hates Money

Hey all you G. Gordon Liddy fans! G. Gordon Liddy is back with a new gold commercial. He straps on some goggles and kneepads (!) and blows away a huge stack of money with a leaf blower. He hates money so much! Then he walks over to a pyramid of gold bars and extols the virtues of purchasing a big old pyramid of gold bars. What he DOESN'T do is blow on the gold bars with a leaf blower. WHY NOT? That way he could have demonstrated the selling point that you CAN'T blow away a pyramid of gold bars with a leaf blower! YOU CAN'T! (Illustration of Scrooge McDuck, an alien, and some gold bars courtesy of that fantastic Danish Carl Barks site.)
