    A bit of fun!

    Can any of you remember some of the old jingles that used to go with adverts on the telly? One has come into my mind and I can't stop singing it. Not sure if I have got it all right. But it adds to the fun of it and I will give it a go. I haven't looked it up at all.

    A finger of fudge is just enough
    To give your kids a treat.
    A finger of fudge is just enough
    Until its time to eat.
    It's full of Cadbury goodness
    And very small and neat.
    A finger of fudge is just enough
    Until its time to eat.

    The 'Finger of Fudge' adverts are on you tube (like most things are)

    A Finger Of Fudge!!!!!!!!! - YouTube

    "Go Compare!" Now that's gets into your brain, like it or not!

    (The song in the adverts is based on the George M. Cohan classic 'Over There')

    Oh, and the all time classic "Shake and Vac"

          Then there was this one:-

          Hands that do dishes can feel soft as your face with mild green Fairy Liquid.

          Not looked that one up either.

          I used to have a nephew that only watched the telly when the adverts were on. He would sit playing with his toys but as soon as he heard the adverts he would stop playing and sit glued to the telly.

                  I remembered an old one last night and it went something like this:-

                  'My mum says when I grow up I'm going to be a proper little madam.' But I couldn't remember what it was advertising. So, I asked my husband and he thought it was for shoes. This morning, I looked it up, and it was for shoes. Clarke's shoes for children.

                    Most annoying ad of the moment?

                    "We want to buy your house, we want to buy your house. Riiight noooooooow!"

                    I hate it.

                      I LOVED that advert! Actually, I like most of the Cadbury's adverts. I'm now wanting a bar of chocolate for brunch

                            Nobody's mentioned "for mash get Smash" yet ...

                            I absolutely HATED that advert, but the infuriating jingle still hangs around in my mind!!!

                            Cheers,
