While doodling on Google I ran across this delightful site and want to share it. Some of you may even remember these:

Is He Lonesome
Or Just Blind
That Guy Who Drives
So Close Behind
Burma Shave

A Darn Good Driver
With Lots of Nerve
Still Won't Pass
While Rounding A Curve
Burma Shave

Her Chariot Raced
At 90 Per
They Hauled Away
What Had Ben Hur
Burma Shave

Here is a link to many, many more

We used to be entertained for miles with the Burma Shave
advertising when we were kids.
It was good practice reading for us.

RE: Now that was advertising!

That was fun reading. Thanks Lilo.

RE: Now that was advertising!

I remember those Burma Shave ads. I think of them as early flash cards for drivers. Now, if we can come up with some sort of "FLASH" or modern message to stop certain drivers to hang on my bumper,I'd be happy.
