Yeah, I heard the AR-15 rumor. Story goes that the only thing holding up the final "go" decision is difficulty picking a pitchman.
One group inside corporate headquarters wants Jim Zumbo.
Another group wants Brian in Oregon, but he's thrown his support behind somebody named Fudd.
If the Remington deal falls through, Brian and this Fudd will go back to Cartoonland with their wacky wascally wabbit fwiend and make educational cartoon features. The rabbit and the whack-job will chase poor Elmer and his double-barrel all over Hell and back, all the while shooting full-auto machine guns at him and screaming "Get the Fudd out of here."
Remington may - or may not - sponsor this series of cartoons. It depends on whether or not they're scared of a Brian-led boycott. As the head Greenie told me, "He does have a Class 3, and he doesn't seem real, uhh, stable. We might have to cave in."
