Excellent. One advantage to being "ould" -- we remember the CLASSIC commercials!!

Jim said...

Wow, Dianne! What a commercial!
But I think they may have needed cue cards. Or at least they could have written the script on their palms.

Nice µ-fiction, Dianne. I suppose you see a lot of these guys on your NJ beaches.

Seems like the old boys have spent way too much time at sea and just can't remember which soap does what! Very cute!

Au and Target said...

I recognise these Jolly Sailors from old books but ads? Good fun though this microfiction.

Ron said...

Haha, that’s awesome! I probably would have went with either the Gordon’s Fish Guy or a Hemmingway reference. You are a captiony/fictiony bad ass!
