Ask Mr. Knowitall.....

If it's Wednesday, it must be time for Ask Mr. knowitall....

A Miss J.D. Rose from Pismo Beach California asks...
Dear Mr. Knowitall, whats the deal on Mood Rings?

Dear J.D., They are temperature -sensitive jewelry that supposedly reads your emotions.
Mood Rings were the brainchild of Joshua Reynolds, a new age heir to the R.J.Reynolds tobacco fortune. He envisioned them as "portable biofeedback aids" and managed to sell about 1 Million dollors worth of them in a 3 month period in 1975. Even so, the company went bankrupt- but not before a hoard of imitators hit the market. There were even " mood panties"..Underwear studded with temperature-sensitive plastic hearts.

A Mister Oahu Kamonawanalaya from Hilo Hawaii asks...
Dear Mr. Knowitall, was Hawaiian Punch invented in Hawaii?

Dear Oahu....NO!!! It was invented in 1936 by a couple of Southern Californians, A.W. Leo, and Tom Yates. It actually began as a soda fountain syrup, when mixed with water it was a fountain drink, but it was also used as an ice cream topping. By 1944, department stores started selling it in their gourmet food section, so Leo began bottling it for consumers. At first it was only available as a syrup, then Leo brought it out as a 46-oz premixed bottle. Most of it's popularity was due to the famous commercials of the late 50's and early 60's, when a guy in a Hawaiian shirt asked.."Hey how about a cool refreshing Hawaiian Punch?" He then socked the person that was asked in the puss!!

A Mr. Roger Smith from Detroit Michigan asks...
Dear Mr. Knowitall, was Henry Ford a buddy of Adolph Hitler?

Dear Roger, Ford was a BIG donor to the Nazi party!! Ford bankrolled Hitler in the early 20's, when the party had very few sources of income. In fact, he may have saved the Nazi Party!!
In 1922, The New York Times reported that the wall beside his desk was decorated with a large picture of Henry Ford. Ford Never denied that he had bankrolled Hitler, in fact he presented him with the highest decoration for a foreigner...The Grand Cross of the German Eagle!!

A Mr. Mike Jackson of parts unknown asks...
Dear Mr. Knowitall, if I were to stock my own private zoo, what 2 animals should I start with?
Dear Mike, knowing what I know about you, I would have an Anteater and a Giraffe...
The Anteater can stick out it's tongue over 160 times a minute..
The tongue of a Giraffe is over 14 inches long...

Mr. Knowitall grows weary...Good Night!!

i wonder what the reading on a pair of mood panties would be if an anteater or giraffe were near?

hhhmmmmmm.......

Serena Joy said...

Mood is everything. If you can look at somebody's ring and get a whiff of which way the wind is blowing, just think of all the time and arguments that could be saved. I have GOT to find mine. Ant-eaters and giraffes, huh? Just think if they were wearing mood rings...

Sleep tight, G.

Giraffe's tongue 14". Makes me wonder how the hell long is .......perhaps not!

Little Wing said...

Lucky anteater and giraffe!

What was the theory behind the mood panties tho? If a guy was close enough to check them, would it even matter what the reading was???????

Queenie said...

Like Lime I also wonder Mr Knowitall....
Love the punch ad never saw it here, mind you I'd never heard of the drink until I came here and started my education....

evalinn said...

Hello MrWiseman, come pick your prize up! :-)

G-Man said...

Limey...
I think the reading would be...a "Thriller"!
Congratulations!!!
xoxoxox

Serena Joy,
Whether you are wearing your ring or not, your mood is wonderful!!
Thanks sweetie, I slept like a log!..xoxbgxox

Dickiebo..
That info is for another post!

LittleWing,
I think the theory was, if you could read the mood of the panties, you would know if you could "Proceed" or not..
Now they have the same sort of an indicator in the form of a panty-liner. If the liner is moist...you may "proceed".
Or buy her some Depends...whatever is appropriate.
Thanks J.D. xoxoxoxox

Queenie,
Hi Baby, loved your Holiday pics...xoxox

J Morgetron said...

barman said...

What horrible thing are you going to dig up about Chrysler next? I think you are just picking off the competition. Mood panties ... oh man. I don't care if the panties are red or blue, if I got that far I think it is time to go for it. I wounder if you could bribe someone to make a special pair that says she is always in the mood?

Oh and by the way, how cute is this. I just did a google search for mood panties and there was a link to this article. You were the fifth link. Wow, you are somebody. I have never seen something link that fast.

Strumpet said...

Where is Mike Jackson from?

I want a pair of mood panites!

And Hawaiian Punch rocks, thought it's been awhile since I've indulged in it.

Thanks for the Ford question. I never knew that and it kind of explains some things for me.

In a weird way.

As for links, Barman. I briefly mentioned the band Hanson the other day, negatively mind you, and I have been getting so many hits because of that it's disgusting.

All the little Hanson fans must get a little upset when they land on my blog.

I seriously did not intend for that to happen, but oh well.

I feel bad, cos I don't want to waste their time.

I seem to remember it going, "Hey how about a nice Hawaiian Punch?" instead of "Hey how about a cool refreshing Hawaiian Punch?" Of course I wasn't listening in the 50's.

pink ginger 珂琳 said...

Interesting post, g-man. Mood rings - Cool!!

Rebicmel said...

You just had to add the last lines about tongues, didn't you? You sure know how to work the women.

tsduff said...
