Some Things That Have Caught My Eye
Perhaps he was inspired by the intrepid Karyn, but Dustin Diamond, the actor who played "Screech" on Saved by the Bell, is not taking the impending foreclosure on his house in Milwaukee laying down. Apparently being a stand-up comedian isn't paying the bills for him, so he's selling autographed t-shirts with his likeness in order to raise about $250,000 to stop the foreclosure. On the front of the T-shirt, he's holding a sign that says, "Save My House" and on the back, it says "I paid $15.00 to save Screeech's house." He added the third "e" to avoid tangling with NBC's lawyers. Do your thing Screech!
