I can't remember where Lucky Strike green went.

Lucky Strike Green went to war.

 

I don't understand . . . :lol:

The green dye was needed for the war effort, so the pack switched to white. I believe the phrase hollywood quoted was used in the ads to explain the color change.

 

Here's one: Seal-a-Meal, which I believe was a Ron Popeil gadget. You put your leftovers in a special plastic bag, then placed the end in the Seal-a-Meal, which used heat to seal it up. The bag then goes in the freezer and the food keeps for weeks. My mother used it for years and years, especially for Chinese leftovers, and she may still have it.

Lex does a mean Froggie the Gremlin voice.

 

On a separate topic, my dearest pal can sing the whole Buster Brown shoe commercial. And she'll do it at the drop of a hat.

 

It's the only annoying thing about her.

And she told two friends, and they told two friends and so on and so on and so on...
