ANSWERS TO THE LATEST RETRO JINGLES QUESTIONS

Okay, kids, you had a good try at it and some (Pjazzy!!!) came pretty close with only one answer missed! Bev, you got all but two - and you were the only one who knew #3 as well as #4, which makes me wonder just how much laundry you've done in your lifetime, lol!

I have to admit I was pretty impressed by the number of you that got Peter Pan!!! That was really pretty old and obscure - how many of you knew that it was a reference to saving Tinkerbell in the J.M. Barrie classic, Peter Pan?
"Do you believe in fairies? Say quick that you believe. If you believe, clap your hands! Don't let Tink die!"
My age group was introduced to this classic by Mary Martin playing Peter Pan. I think this started the tradition of a woman playing Peter Pan! I remember they used to run it right around Christmas every year for a while and I always looked forward to it. I wanted my own fairy!

Some years later, when I was in college, I got myself a female cockatiel and named her Tinkerbell, she became my wonderful and entertaining little "fairy" for 15 years. I got a male as a mate for Tinkerbell and named him Peter Pan. A few of you know that I just lost my little Petey recently - he was 37 years old. I miss my little fairies. Off the subject, but hey, I'm old - my mind wanders!

Anyway, you all did pretty good - I'll have to work harder to stump you all next time!

Here's the answers:

1. Winston tastes good like a cigarette should

2. Tareyton smokers would rather fight than switch.

3. Ajax, the detergent that's stronger than dirt.

4. All - Tempa - CHEER.

5. If you believe in peanut butter, you gotta believe in Peter Pan.

6. Hey! How 'bout a nice Hawaiian Punch?

7. Snap! Crackle! Pop! Rice Krispies!

And check my soundboard from the last post - I've added a few new retro sound bytes for you. I'll put the player on the blog here permanently if I can add it to the bottom of the page - it's too wide for my right side bar and I tried to mess with the flash code to make it smaller but, alas, I am not doing something right, lol.

Happy week all!
