Things Long Forgotten

There should be a site called "The Annals (hehe, I said annal) of Forgotten Things" and in this site should contain icons of yore such as:
  • The Dell Dude, pre-ganja -- "Dude, you're getting a Dell!"
  • Sinbad -- "Sin! Bad!" "No no. It's Sinbad! One word, and it's alll good."
  • The Noid -- Voiced by equally weird-named Pons Maar, a skilled puppeteer.

For some reason though, probably because it's more obscure, perhaps, I think the Noid holds its own better than either Sinbad or the Dell Dude, . Referencing Sinbad or Ben Curtis doesn't give anybody street cred but referencing the Noid (Adam West notwithstanding), well, that's just classy.
