Ladies and Gentlemen, the Unbelievable Jerry Lane. (Hiccup!)

Just because it's been forlornly sitting in a folder for ages, here's an early seventies ad from a Newsday TV book for The Bounty, a restaurant in Hewlett. Please note that their Family Fun Time Sundays promotion features "UNLIMITED BOOZE." No wonder so many overworked Nassau County dads were such big Jerry Lane fans. ("I don't care if that strange man scares you, Junior, I said get in the fucking car!") I imagine Lane's menagerie of puppety oddballs (including Peppino the Purple People Eater) was especially delightful after six Rob Roys. And I like that he couldn't be bothered to give the harmonica-playing rabbit a name...

I can only hope the Deli with offer the same delights as The Bounty!

Maybe Jerry would be available for the grand opening? But he must wear a hairnet...if he still needs one.
