So it was an oblique reference to be sure, but it was a reference nonetheless. Weird Al Yankovik had a song called "Mr. Popeil"
in which he parodied the infomercial stylings of the true Ron Popeil.
Listen to the lyrics and you will indeed hear about that handy appliance that will scramble an egg while it's still inside it's shell, which is just one of many great products in the song (some real, some imagined). I'll tell you one thing though: The album that song was on, "In 3-D,"
is my favorite Weird Al album, and not just for that song.
