This is almost as OT as they get, so OT foes, hit Delete immediately!
Is anyone else in our group bugged by the Progresso soup TV ad that
features a tin-can "telephone"? Surely some of you, like me, built and
tried one as kids. The Progresso ad has the string hanging loose and
immediately taking a 90-degree turn when it emerges from the bottom of
the soup can. This probably wouldn't bug me so much if a friend and I
hadn't been semi-successful with a string and tin can "telephone" back
in the 1950s, so I know how they work, and it's not like that!
I actually emailed Progresso and explained that its ad men could not
possibly have ever used such a "telephone," but have not heard back (yet).
