    I used to and still do tell my kids and grandkids "Sorry Charlie!" I just wondered if you use any phrases that you would have to explain to your kids or grands what they mean because they are before their time!!

    Charlie was a Sunkist Tuna that didn't make the grade to get in a Sunkist can!! It was a commercial from yesteryear! LOL Not real sure what yesteryear! :mrgreen:

    I know I use more but have to think about it a bit. For the younger crowd is there any commercial phrase or jingle that makes its way into your conversation?

    I used to sing the "I wish I were an Oscar Meijer Weiner" song all the time to my kids when they were irritating me!

    I guess I have never really thought about how many times we repeat catch phrases from commercials, tv shows and movies...
    Will have to do some thinking on this too :D:D:D

    The commericals that are on TV now are too stupid to repeat.

    I bet you do it and don't realize it. I love to listen to how people talk and a lot of the phrases from commercials and tv are now in our every day words and phrases.

    A McGyverism is when someone uses an unusual way to fix a problem. I have heard this used in common conversations.

    Make my day was a real popular phrase for alot of folks. Or I'll be back.(Schwarzenegger)
