Commercial Break: Wordy prosessicinator for sale. Deep joy.

29 December 2010

One for the teenagers today, and proof that Lord Sir Alan Sugar, the man who looks like a lion trying to escape from inside a giant testicle, hasn’t always be the straight-talking business monster that he portrays himself as on The Apprentice.

Here’s a 1980s advert for an Amstrad word processor featuring the unique wordular styletalk of Professor Stanley Unwin, late great national treasure and mangler of the English language into something even better than its original formystyle.

Fans of the man himself might like to know that a beautifully-observed version of him has cropped up on Twitter recently. Professor Unwin that is, not Sugar. He’s there too though, constantly plugging his stupid book.
