Every city has its local TV advertising celebrity. Maybe it's a car dealer who wears funny clothes or a mattress salesman who cuts them in half with a chainsaw. In Houston, we have both of those but the hero is furniture salesman Mattress Mac. A recovering drug addict who opened up a small shop with his wife, it grew into a Houston furniture empire fueled primarily by his tagline: "We'll save you MONEY!" It's awesome. Today we brought you the bankruptcy of Jim Sikes and Oddfish is surprised he didn't save more money.
How can a man possibly be $700k in debt when he's saving so much money on gas with his Prius?
