Wonder Bread



So far as I know, Wonder Bread has not yet returned to the shelves, although the rights to make it have been purchased. One can only hope that the new company revives this old ad campaign.

"To be alluring... be alive!"
Darn. And here I was going for that dead, semi-comatose look. When did necrophilia go out of style?

Roman Meal, for those who loved PB&J and weren´t related to the Beverly Hillbillies.

Did anyone else notice the instructions for the 1-2-3 test to be performed in grocery stores? I wonder what would happen if you were to try this in your local Wally World?

I remember as a wee lad going to a local Sunbeam bakery for a class tour. The guide showed us essentially the same "tests" for freshness and quality but he also demonstrated how evenly it could be torn into two pieces to make half sandwiches - "You won't need a knife." For a six year old kid that was pretty wonderful. I don't think Sunbeam ever got into using voluptuous women in their adverts.

Too bad that now white bread is demonized as being empty of everything. I still eat it once in a while as one of my guilty pleasures. Ahhhhh, so soft and supple. Otherwise I bake most of my own.

During a Papal audience, a business man approached the Pope and made this offer: Change the last line of the Lord's prayer from "give us this day our daily bread" to "give us this day our daily chicken." and KFC will donate 10 million dollars to Catholic charities. The Pope declined. 2 weeks later the man approached the Pope again. This time with a 50 million dollar offer. Again the Pope declined. A month later the man offers 100 million, this time the Pope accepts. At a meeting of the Cardinals, The Pope announces his decision in the good news/bad news format. The good news is... that we have 100 million dollars for charities. The bad news is that we lost the Wonder Bread account!

P.S. Off topic : Trying to explain logic to a woman is like trying to explain to a brick why it needs mortar. My wife looks good in her red silk night gown like the woman in the first ad though btw. Patty looked good in hers but it was look and not touch .... sigh :((
