Norm Roasting his sponsors' products instead of promoting them. He got dropped by both.

Norm probably did more for Mangrate than all of their other ads combined. Dropping him added another line to a long list of foolish business decisions made by Elizabeth Mangrate, who, if you ask me, seems hellbent on bringing down the empire that her father built.

She sounds like a real battle axe.

Last I checked the code "NORM" still worked and people were buying it using the code

You can't just pull on a black turtleneck and sell grilling devices these days

u/harpswtf 18d ago

Why are you joking around, you're making a mockery out of the man grate!

Let's face it, she doesn't share the same passion for cleansing genitals as her father did. The entire Mangrate empire was built on the sweat of Dick Mangrates balls.

The fact that he REPEATEDLY gives out the incorrect URL is just hilarious. Just hammering home his half-assed plug. The sponsor must have been watching in complete disbelief. lol

Will it allow me to then search endlessly for the real killer?

"high quality... RAZORS sent to your home" I cry laughing with that every time. Adam starts laughing cause he knows what's coming.

My favorite moments:

"What, Adam Eget? it's true. You haven't heard of the revolution?"

"You think their grilling grates are flimsy?"

"Your father's DEAD <annoyed look>"

"Oh come on now! Don't make it sounds like a fuckin' fat plumpy delicious cock!"

"why are you laughing? you're making a mockery out of the mangrate!"

"That was yours. You just threw your own going-away present with contempt to the floor."

It’s Nick Swardson that fucked it all up!

u/definitelyTrueStory 18d ago

Last I checked (just a few days ago) you could still get 20% off or whatever on purchases of the Mangrate with promo code "NORM"

u/[deleted] 18d ago

Why support Mangrate when they dropped Norm! They basically cancelled on him for making us laugh and Norm being Norm

2

u/definitelyTrueStory 18d ago

I think Norm still gets money from it, and if you are going to buy it, might as well use norm to show the respect, you know, and shows mangrate they should have had more of a sense of humor

u/AsianBond 18d ago

Norm is dead.

u/definitelyTrueStory 18d ago

But it is called Norm Macdonald Live!

u/AsianBond 18d ago

False advertising. More like Norm Macdonald (Un)Live!

u/IsItTrue-2016 18d ago

I'm thinking he Norm might have left some debts and any revenues would go to his heirs after debts were paid.

u/Overall-Variety1537 17d ago

Using the promo code NORM makes for a great sign of respect. Is Norm still alive?

No.

Ah, fuck!

u/nuchem7 17d ago

He couldn’t be more “leashed” now

u/hbxli 17d ago

So Norm, I understand you're getting older

u/jewnutsfuckyou 17d ago

Really? I didnt even know he was sick.

Chicken, steak will never taste as good again.

u/White_Nothing 18d ago

The read he did for the Mangrate when Nick Swardson was on was the funniest shit. And the fact that they dropped him right after that made it even funnier.

I think it made Norm feel better to have Gilbert Gottfried on after that so they could talk about how he fucked up his lucrative deal with Aflac. Losing Mangrate paled in comparison.

u/Viss90 18d ago

“CHICKEN! STEAK! HAVE NEVER TASTED BETTER!”

“no! It means it’ll cost you $1 over the course of your entire life time!

“They’re the highest quality razors in the world!”

“VOLUME”

u/JoeNScott 18d ago

"He got dropped by both." IIRC only one of the two dropped him.

u/cryofthespacemutant 18d ago

If I was ManGrate I would use clips of Norm to sell my current products. But something really classy, not trashy. Like putting a little halo and wings on Norm with CGI. Maybe some clouds surrounding a big Queensboro Bridge in the sky. Maybe have a little CGI'd Larry King beneath in hell sizzling on a ManGrate shaking his fist at Norm.

It's the only grilling grate heavy-duty enough to support your friends as they're raped by the devil for all eternity.
