Shake n Bake to herpes
July 7, 2008 - Paul Giannamore
Am I the only one who sees a sad commentary on the changes of society from the 1960s to now based solely on two TV commercials?
1960s: Little girl standing proudly next to her mom and a tray of fresh fried chicken. Mom says, "It's Shake n Bake." Little girl adds, "And I hept." (The little girl inevitably has a bad Southern accent in my memory. Sorry.)
2008: Handsome man with pretty girlfriend peeking up from above his right shoulder. Man says, "I have genital herpes." Pretty girl says, "And I still don't."
Thankfully, it means he never "hept."
And, ironically, the mere fact I have access to an Internet blog that allows me to write this away from the prying eyes of the family newspaper reader says something, too, doesn't it?
