Don’t Treat Recurring Giving Like Rotisserie Chicken

If you're a child of the 80's like me, you'll probably remember the popular infomercials for the RoncoTM rotisserie ovens. The host and inventor of the oven, Ron Popeil, had a catch phrase that became so popular it transcended both infomercial-land and the RoncoTM oven.
