Can you fill in the last line?

The whale

Put Jonah

Down the hatch

But coughed him up

Because he scratched

Best squeeze play

For love

Hint

Although we didn't travel with a trailer, we did travel quite a bit in my youth. Up and down and all around US highways.

Cool!

So someone, other than myself, remembers them! We use to always love to look for new signs 'just around the next corner.' I really miss those.

That is a great one, Nick. There are tons of neat ones, but thought I'd better use a couple that hinted what it was.


Anybody else remember one?

Time to redo and renew

I, for one, enjoyed those faded red signs with the white letters. So, I think it's time we start a new trend. Ummm......

Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Jack was smart
And got rid of
His sticks!

Burma Shave

In this world
of toil and sin
Your head grows bald
but not your chin

Don't you just love 'em?

Come on, folks. I know there are more than a couple of us who remember those Burma Shave signs! No? Okay, let's make up some new ones for our fiberglass trailers!

Easy to pull
Easy to back
Easy to park
And that's a fact!

Ask and ye shall receive TOO MUCH INFO (?)

:)

Most people of today's generation have never heard of Burma shave, but ask anyone who lived in America from the 1920s into the early sixties, and you will bring up an extraordinary fixture of their past.

Burma Shave was one of the world's first brushless shaving cream manufacturers and spawned heavy competition for their product, but this certain company had an upper hand in winning over customers. Burma Shave signs were the precursor to modern billboard signs on America's earliest roads. They were an interesting diversion from long drives and began to spring up all over the country throughout the mid-twentieth century. The signs were often humorous jingles that were placed at intervals along the road, each sign showing one line of the four-part rhyme until the last sign which concluded the clever advertising scheme with "Burma-Shave".

A Trip to Mars

One of my friends in the Appleton Noon Lions Club (Arliss French or "Frenchy" to his friends is a retired Grocery Store manager. Sometime back in the 50s as he was driving between Appleton and Oshkosh he observed a Burma Shave sequence
"If you save
a thousand jars
You can win
A trip to Mars
Burma Shave"
He returned to his store and put up signs "Help send Frenchy to Mars"
around a big Burma Shave display. He provided cups to empty the shave cream into so that customers could leave the jar. When he neared his goal of 1000 jars he wired the company in Minneapolis that he was ready for his trip. They took it as a joke but sent a rep to Appleton for a look and he apparently was impressed enough that the company ended up sending Frenchy and his wife on an all expense paid trip to Mars Germany. This is all documented in a book titled "The Verse by the Side of the Road", available at
http://www.quiltbus.com/burma.htm
there you will also find a link to a video.
