  • 'Everyone's a fruit & nut case'......yes I remember it well. Showing my age as well ah well!!! It's only when someone else remembers these forgotten treasures that makes us realise what else there is stored in the back of the cupboard. The only way I get through is by being a complete 'fruit & nut case too'. Long may we reign.

    Have a happy fruit and nut day.

  • Didn't think anyone could make me smile today but the squirrel poo did it!! How about ' If you like a Lotta chocolate on your biscuit join our club'.

  • So pleased it made you smile. :-) :-) That is exactly the reason why we try to do some fun posts, just making one person able to smile, when they thought they couldn't is our reasoning !!

  • Well,they say laughter is the best medicine. I have hundreds of jokes hanging around in my head. Maybe someone should suggest a topic and we see if we can come up with a joke about it. If that's allowed that is.

  • Of course it is we have a comedy slot :) lead the way xgins

  • Oh yes, I often hum that to myself, it could be my theme tune! I loved the adverts back then, Happiness Is A Cigar Called...., was another favourite, just so funny!! All very un pc now sadly. I never smoked, just loved the humour of the ads!

  • I loved the rolo advert with the elephant.

  • a little boy teased an elepant with a rolo, as the elephant reached his trunk out to take it, the boy ate it.

    next there is a parade and as the elephant walks along he sees the boy now a man.

    next, he gets his revenge - it was funny, believe me :D

  • the polo advert no it was the glaciers ad for mints with the bear and the fox !
