    You mean you really can't make money placing classified ads in papers all over the country to promote the 900 (or was it 800) dating service telephone number they assigned to you?

    David Spade did a tremendous job with his faux infomercials spoofing Lapre.

    It is too bad more people were not aware who he was. They could have saved their money and avoided being conned by this jerk.
