Fibbing Friday — It’s All About the Ads

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Frank’s turn to host and here are his questions.

1. According to the old TV commercial, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?

None. All you need it a nut cracker to break open the hard candy shell and voila, you’re at the center of the pop.

2.What did George the Grocer, a.k.a. Mr. Whipple, ask us not to squeeze in his store?

Mrs. Whipple’s melons.

3. What song begins with the lyrics, “Livin’ on spongecake…”?

The theme song to the SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon show.

4. According to the song, “Do You Know the Way to San Jose,” L.A. is a great big what?

L.A. is a great big homage to the oversized egos of movie stars.

5. What does Tony the Tiger say about Kellog’s Frosted Flakes?

“They’re better than snorting cocaine if you wanna get a sugar high, kids!”

6. Aside from caramel-covered popcorn and peanuts, what can be found inside a box of Cracker Jacks?

A trip to the dentist after you break a tooth biting down onto of those stale peanuts in the box.

7. What does Lucky the Leprechaun say that kids are always after?

The ice cream man.

8. What toy was touted by its jingle as being “fun for a girl and a boy”?

Sea Monkeys.

9. According to its marketing, what product just “keeps going and going and going…”?

The slinky.

19. Who was known as “The Man of a Thousand Voices”?

Donald Trump. Oh wait, I’m sorry. Donald Trump was know as “The Man of a Thousand Lies.”

    Just in case you didn’t know, the slinky answer is right (I looked it up because I was curious).
    We thought alike on a couple Fandango.

        Yes; “fun for a girl or a boy” is Slinky. And, while Slinkies can be thought of as going on and on, a selling point for batteries is how long they last.

    Very clever answers! Wow, sea monkeys, haven’t thought of them for years! Wonder if they still advertise them on comic books?
