Today’s post is half morbid and half nostalgic: first the morbid part. With Merv Griffin passing away yesterday and Phil Rizzuto today, who do you think will be the next famous death? I am not hoping for another famous death, but these things do always happen in threes. Personally, I have yet to recover from the “one-two” punch that was Sammy Davis, Jr and Jim Henson going hours apart. If I were a betting man, I would place my money on LiLo. For some reason reading “Lindsey Lohan found dead” would not shock me even a little. Again, I am not hoping she is next, but that would be my bet if she is not dead already. It has been four days since I saw her name in the press so maybe she was the first to go.
Spoke too soon- She is back in the news and therefore alive. Damn...
Now the nostalgic- What slogans stand out in your mind from childhood? It will probably be a toy or food of some description, but which product’s slogan has become placed deeply in your fondest memories?
“Just one Calorie”
“Once you start you can’t stop”
“AAmco- double A (honk honk) M-C-O”
“Two all beef patties special sauce lettuce cheese pickles onions on a sesame bun (BIG MAC)
“We’ll leave a light on for you”
Any of those make you feel old or am I alone and babbling once again?
