A bit of a topic drift as the City Morgue quote was a popular way to answer the dorm hall phone back in pre-historic times. Which reminded me of another one:

"Student Affairs. May we arrange one for you?"

Reminds me of what most on-hold messages should say:

"Please continue to hold and remain on the line. Your call is very important to us. The fact that you have been holding for 52 minutes shows you just *how* important it is to us..."

I think "the beer to have AFTER you've had a few of the good ones and can't taste the difference any more" would be truth in advertising.

That's what it was. One of my suitemates had a sign with that on it in college. I thought it was Natty Light but must have drank too many of them because the memory is a little fuzzy.

That's the perfect slogan for cash strapped college kids.

I remember that one- way back in the early 60s. Beer excels in this area.

Blatz is the name you will always hear,
Blatz is Milwaukee's Finest Beer!

Mabel, Black Label!
Carling's Black Label Beer
It's the premium brew at a popular price
Enjoy the best, take our advice
Call-Mabel, Black Label
Carling's Black Label Beer!

Clarita- ĦLa Cerveza Mas Cerveza!

Thunderbird!
What's the price?
Thirty Twice
What's the reason?
Grapes are in season!

Even Rye bread-

Ruble's is the bread we favor,
It has that enthusiastic flavor!

Men's hair oils are pretty good too:

Use Wildroot Cream Oil Charlie, It's Made With Soothing Lanolin

Brylcreem, A little dab'll do ya,
Brylcreem, the gals will all pursue ya...

And women's hair products-

Which Twin Has the Tony?

Gum-

Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Taste.. (Oh yeah baby!!!) Growing up prior to easy access to pornography those Doublemint girls were really popular.

Ha
