All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.”   —   Alexandre Dumas

(I know that his name should put me in mind of “The Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”, but my pea brain always goes to that commercial where the smarmy punk, who thinks he’s just nailed his interview, asks the interviewer:   So, what do you think, Mr. Dumb-ass?  And the older gent – with veto power – simply replies:  It’s pronounced Du-mah.  That commercial always cracked me up!   But I don’t recall what it was for.  Does anyone remember it?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I don’t recall ever seeing this commercial. I don’t like it; it’s too simplistic !

    Hey, UR, I googled the Mr. dumb ass thing and found an A & W Root Beer ad that sounds like what you are talking about. BTW, years ago a woman on a radio quiz show was asked who wrote The Three Musketeers and she said Alexandre Dumb ass. Must be catching. ✌Bob W.

    Thanks, Bob! That’s right, A&W Root Beer! I always loved that commercial. The radio quiz show story sounds kinda familiar too.

    You sound like my Mom, lwc! LOL! I guess you wouldn’t have seen it on PBS while watching “Brideshead Revisited”, or during a film festival for “The Thin Man” series. But, thanks for the link, my friend! — YUR

    Now, that you’ve spelled that out, you might not consider a commercial like this:
    “A&W ham n’ egger”

    What’s going on at A&W’s promotion office ?

    I thought it was great, lwc. It shows how some folks are so wired up they kind of lose their train of thought. I actually laugh when some of these dopes walk right out into traffic because they’re so preoccupied with their phone, and the ear pieces are blocking out all other sounds. Hip and happenin’ . . . all the way to the morgue! — YUR
