    I'm pretty sure a lot of members are not old enough to remember the road side ads that Burma Shave placed around the country years back. Equally sure that some do remember one or more of the doggerel that showed up. Here's the place to quote your fave. They are easy to find on the web if you don't have any in memory, so please stick with one or two so everyone gets a shot at it without repeating TOO many --

    "Within this vale-
    of toil and sin -
    your head grows bald -
    but NOT your chin.
    Burma Shave."

    How bright you are
