Okay...this may sound a little brutal, but I vote to change the name to 1-800-AXE-GARY!!! LOL
( If I had a pic of an axe I'd have replaced the word with the pic! LOL)

As much as this guy advertises on TV...it probably isn't doing anything big! In fact all it does is aggravate me more when I DO hear the commercial....I do the channel flipping thing. Their commercials are on constantly! I've gotten pretty good at the "last" button toggle to avoid listening to them.

Folks, there could be worse things. We could be in Mobile, AL and this could be our claim to fame:

It's curtains for perhaps the least melodious name ever for an outdoor music venue the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre.

Amphitheater is no longer named Ask-Gary - Tampa Bay Times
