I would not have bothered to look it up, but I read your comments. More trivia to cram in the ol’ attic.
I couldn’t find the video. But: "Once the company decided on the “Just do it” slogan it was time to release it to the public. One of the commercials had triathlete Joanne Ernst in it and she said the famous line. She also followed it up with this though, “And it wouldn’t hurt to stop eating like a pig, either.” "
I saw once a Nike ad in the 80s with some multi-sport woman athelete doing all these different things while offering encouragement to get out and do something; at the end she is sitting in the locker room, stares into the camera, and says, “And it would help if you’d stop eating like a pig.” I loved it! When I (recently) looked for it online, I find it was very controversial. Go figure.
Being a former QM1 in the USN, I had a poster in my office, the one from WW1 with the woman in a Navy Dress Blue uniform (the “Cracker Jack” uni) and the caption, “Gee! I wish I were a man, I’d join the Navy!” (BTW the rating badge was, yes, QM1). A female co-worker was staring at it one day, saying, “I’m not sure if I should take offense or not.” Sheesh— it was 1917. Like taking offense of the Venus de Milo because you are handicapped. Of course I was displaying it in the 1990s, but I wasn’t reflecting current practice or mores.
I am offended that you didn’t say, “One fewer snowflake”! Now I will just curl up in a corner and whine quietly to myself.
Yes, but if you are Blue and Yellow: Green!
The best definition of “PC” I’ve heard is: don’t be an a$$hole. By that measure, Rat is rarely PC.
A laugh-out-loud scene I still remember from Third Rock From The Sun (because I rarely LOL): John Lithgow is trapped by a force field. He reaches forward and feels a wall; left, right, above. He cries, “Oh, no! I’ve been turned into a mime!”
Get ready! The wo-o-o-rld is coming to an end!
Sans-a-belt… that’s in around five or six.
