We Love The Subs

I loved the Quiznos ads they debuted during the Super Bowl. I didn't realize that they were done by the Joel Veitch, and it's based on one of his old bits. Looks like my favorite of them, with the kittens doing Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song", is no longer online, doubtlessly due to humorless lawyer people.

The Magic Word:
The two elements in water are hydrogen and ______

A certain old cat had made his home in the alley behind Gabe’s bar for some
time, subsisting on scraps and occasional handouts from the bartender. One
evening, emboldened by hunger, the feline attempted to follow Gabe through
the back door. Regrettably, only the his body had made it through when
the door slammed shut, severing the cat’s tail at its base. This proved too
much for the old creature, who looked sadly at Gabe and expired on the spot.
Gabe put the carcass back out in the alley and went back to business.
The mandatory closing time arrived and Gabe was in the process of locking up
after the last customers had gone. Approaching the back door he was startled
to see an apparition of the old cat mournfully holding its severed tail out,
silently pleading for Gabe to put the tail back on its corpse so that it could
go on to the kitty afterworld complete.
Gabe shook his head sadly and said to the ghost, “I can’t. You know
the law — no retailing spirits after 2:00 AM.”
