A Commercial Break

Things happen after a Fish Finger. You can taste the trouble they take. I have birdflu, so I'm not making much sense... obviously a lot worse than manflu. What is the mark of a man? I am delirious with fever.



Flake?

I went to school with Darren Cockerill if it's any help!

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Dotts: Does Darren like flakes? Does he know the mark of a man? Is he an Action man? Who is Darren....?

Gorilla Bananas said...

I couldn't see a mark on that man anywhere - perhaps it was under his trunks. Would the whiff of Old Spice tempt you to mark a man, Miss Scarlet?

xl said...

I think I have flakes now. Are there any products that cure flakes?

Ponita said...

That 'Flake' ad is rather provocative, isn't it?

I don't know the mark of a man either, but the Old Spice guy is rather nice!

Hope your case of birdflu isn't too severe.... people die from that , you know. Just ask the Asians....

wv: wingonyl ... hmmmm, seems bird related, somehow

xl said...

Whoops, I rushed off without wishing you well with the Bird Flu. It can be foul.

MJ said...

Can you get the birdflu from eating fish fingers?

These clips pose more questions than offer answers.

Dave said...

Apart from the scar which is hidden by my trousers, I am completely unmarked.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Bananas: No Mr Bananas, can't say I was ever keen on Old Spice. But I do like making sand castles.

Mr XL: Head and Shoulders, Mr XL... or Vosene. Or Marmalade if it's severe.

Ponita: It's a shame because they don't seem to make flake adverts any more.
I will not complain about my Birdflu... complaining is a symptom of Manflu...

Mr XL: Foul it is, but not as bad as Chicken Pox or Pheasant Fever.

MJ: It a rather confusing documentary on what to do when struck down with Birdflu... I am considering the merits of sucking on a Fish Finger and using Egg shampoo.

Dave: Don't use Old Spice; you will be stained for life.

What about the Chocloate smuggling man who like leapt off cliffs and things - was it All Gold or Black magic or something...?

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Mutts: All because the lady loves Milk Tray...
Yes... I take this as a request for Jukebox Monday?

BEAST said...

BIRDFLU......pah

Who needs aftershave , a dab of beef dripping behind the ears does it for me

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

One should ALWAYS wear lip gloss in the bath.

CyberPete said...

My dad used to wear Old Spice. It smelled of it everywhere he went.

I hate Old Spice. Do they still sell it?

He wears Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani now. I made my mother give him that for birthdays.

Julian Meteor said...

Flakes are lepars lol!!!!

JOTD

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: I thought you'd have more of a liking for mashed banana.

Daphne: Well, quite right, you never know who's going to turn up with a coach and horses to whisk you away for a plate of fish fingers.

Pete: I have a hunch they still try to sell it... I think I prefer Armani. Actually my fav perfume was Armani for women, but they don't sell it in the UK anymore.

Mr Meteor: Very good Mr Meteor. I shall look forward to tomorrow's JOTD.

KAZ said...

Blimey - I just saw my whole life flash in front of me!

Betty said...

My dad used to use Old Spice as well. Why was it in that daft milk bottle container? My dad would wear Old Spice and Brylcreem on a night out. Horrible acrid combination. Good job he was already married really - it wouldn't have helped him to pull the ladies.

scarlet-blue said...

Kaz: I know! Good innit?
Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Betty: My Dad did the Brylcreem thing. Thank christ for VO5...

Homo Escapeons said...

HA!
Jungle fresh...kudos to that idiot wrestling with the lion and and antagonizing the rhino for a bag of peanuts. Well done old sport.

I had to watch and re-watch that young lady savouring the flake and dreaming of wild stallions...it even looks like wood!

Fish fingers reminded me of Palin's sargeant major in the Meaning Of Life..MARCHING UP AND DOWN THE SQUARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YA EH?
She should have clobbered that arse with a frying pan.

eroswings said...

I would like to go to Butlin's for a vacation! I hope to find Flake fans there.

BEAST said...

I like the sunsilk advert when she attempt to flick her golden locks, they just stick there like some solid lump ha ha ha

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Escapeans: Oh crikey! That's Alf Garnett from the popular 70's sit-com, 'Til Death Us Do Part', with the fish fingers.
That'd take some explaining...

Mr Swings: If it's a British Butlin's then you'll find plenty of flake fans.

Mr Beastie: I know, I noticed that. 70's hairspray turned hair into a helmet.

Autolycus said...

Good heavens, I never knew there was a time you could be knocked up by Dusty Springfield!

I'm not surprised you're under the weather what with egg on your hair, chocolate all over your face, fish fingers to fry, and Harmony to spray all over yourself. Enough to drive you to drink. Not Pepsi (or Coke for that matter) - could be lethal on top of his Golden Wonder nuts.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Auty: Whatever happened to Golden Wonder nuts...?

Madame DeFarge said...

I can't quite see Amy Winehouse advertising Warburtons these days. oh, to live in those more carefree times, when advertising reflected a life we all knew so well.

I think that I prefer the manliness of Alf Garnett advertising fish fingers to Suggs from Madness.

Hope you recover and feel perky once more.

Kevin Musgrove said...

Everyone had a lot more fun before they decided to colour the world in.

Keep this under your hat: the Americans are selling Old Spice to high school kids! I saw the adverts in a comic.

scarlet-blue said...

Madame D: Thank you, I think the fever is subsiding.
Yes, what is Suggs playing at? Skint?

Kev: We've done well, 28 coments and no mention of Geri Halliwell.
Yep, The History Channel even shows the war in colour these days. But the sixties is always shown in black 'n white. Odd.

Sx

Kate Lord Brown said...

Oh, birdflu - hope you are taking care of yourself Scarlet (retire to bed with hot toddy and a good book/old black and white film always does it for me if there's no one around to rub the Vicks in) x

lulu labonne said...

I always thought those fishfingers tasted more like chicken - that's deffo where you got the bird flu. Or have you just been leaving your catflap open at night too often?

Dave said...

Have you pruned that bush yet? We're all awaiting the illustrated post.

Gadjo Dilo said...

Mrs Dilo came into the room when that Flake advert was playing - that's me sleeing on the sofa for a week, then.

Geri Halliwell and I were bought up within warbling distance from one another.

Gadjo Dilo said...

"sleeping"

scarlet-blue said...

I am out and about today. Will be back soon.
Hello Lulu!
And good to see you Kate.
Be back asap!

Eryl Shields said...

I had to stop watching after about a minute and a half, I was being dragged back into a past I'm not yet ready to face: those days of only three shampoo brands to choose from and when fish fingers were what rich people ate.

PI said...

I nearly died w;hen the Kellogs one came up - but - thank Heaven, they are more recent than the fifties which were mainly B/W.
Get well soon.

scarlet-blue said...

Kate: I am much recovered. I did nothing for three days and all I have now is an annoying cough and a little sniff. Hopefully I have shaken it off and it won't linger like manflu does. Men make such a fuss...

Lulu: Hello and Welcome! Don't worry, I have lived and learnt. My cat-flap is always, locked, padlocked and taped tightly shut at night. I'm not keen on draughts.

Dave: The bush is nicely hacked back into place. Thank-you for your interest.

Gadj: Sleeping and Sleeing, I imagine.
Did you ever meet Ginger?

Eryl: Shampoo was posh too. Washing up liquid used to be multi-functional when I was a kid!

Pat: Thank you Pat, I'm feeling much better. I was most nostalgic about the Harmony hairspray ad. Doesn't quite look as natural as they claim!

mutleythedog said...

I have a serious venereal infection - but does anyone care? No!

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Mutts: I'm very sorry to hear of your condition Mr Mutts. Have you tried Lemsip?
Sx

Gadjo Dilo said...

No, I never met her but I've felt drawn to all things ginger ever since, Scarlet my dear ;-)

CyberPete said...

Did you try Armani Code?

Been wondering what that's like.

scarlet-blue said...

Gadj: Tsk. Somehow I will have to prove that I am NOT GINGER.
I have a few tasteful auburn highlights and this is all...

Pete: I am sulking with Armani for discontnuing my favourite perfume. They will not tempt me back until they reinstate it. Armani history
