I find myself scratching my head after listening to radio ads sometimes, wondering "Geez! What were they thinking!?" and then those are the ones that get stuck in my head! There's one that used to play a lot when I was a kid - I think they might even still use it today. It's a silly little two-liner jingle that goes "Golden Blossom Honey/ makes everything taste better!" Every time the ad came on, I would laugh to myself that "makes everything taste FUNNY" rhymes with the first line much better, and I sing a little customized version in my head that replaces "better" with "funny". And "Golden Blossom Honey makes everything taste FUNNY" probably isn't the message they wanted to get into listeners' heads! But you're right - even though my mind wandered so far as to replay a twisted version of that jingle in my head and wonder how they ever got such an awful tune on the radio, I still buy that brand of honey! And every time I take out the bottle, I hear the song in my head!"
Thanks Sara! There have been a couple of stories so far on that topic - remember Debbie and Lucille? I found both to be quite inspiring: http://www.smallbizstories.org/2010/04/debbies-story-debsparkles.html http://www.smallbizstories.org/2010/03/lucilles-story-foxglove-foundation-inc.html Glad you like the blog; thanks again for the compliment."
