[ open on stock footage of Saddam Hussein being led to the gallows in Iraq ]
Announcer: Are you the leader of a fledgling democracy? Does this keep happening to you? Do your public executions typically end in embarrasment, decapitation, or worse?
[ dissolve to the Lansford Brothers standing in front of a hangman’s noose ]
Lansford Brother 1: It doesn’t have to be this way. Why not leave the hangin’ to the professionals at Lansford Brothers and Associates Hangmen-at-Law? For a hundred years now, we’ve been hangin’ cattle rustlers, trespassers, and people who answered “No” to the question: “You ain’t from around here, are you, son?” So I think we know a thing or two about the art of a Texas necktie party.
[ Lansford Brother 2 unrolls a tape measurer ]
Lansford Brother 1: As part of the Lansford Brothers promise, we will measure twice, and hang once. ‘Cause hangin’ is all about a long drop —
Lansford Brother 2: — and a sudden stop!
Lansford Brother 1: No one wants an international war criminal hittin’ the bricks like a drunk bungee jumper at the county fair. Or worse — [ Lansford Brother 2 sticks a finger in his mouth to make a cork-popping sound effect ] Pop Goes the Weasel!
Lansford Brother 2: In this case, the weasel’s his head!
Lansford Brother 1: And, best of all, we won’t change any Shiite slogans.
Lansford Brother 2: We don’t know any Shiite slogans!
Lansford Brother 1: Never have, never will. Wouldn’t chant ’em, if we did. We’re the best there is! Don’t believe me? Why not take it from our corporate mascot, professional Sammy Hagar impersonator – Sammy Hangar.
[ cut to Sammy Hangar, standing in front of a neon hangman’s noose with a secodn hangman’s noose dangling from his guitar neck ]
Sammy Hangar: “I.. CAN.. HANG.. FIFTY-FIIIIIIIIVE!!!!” No Baath Party associates!!
[ cut back to the Lansford Brothers ]
Lansford Brother 1: So, next tme you find yourself sayin’:
Lansford Brother 2: “Need a rope?”
Lansford Brother 1: Why not get that rope from the true professinoals at Lansford Brothers & Associates Hangmen-at-Law? We know what we’re doin’!
