"When they ask Sammy about his Nehru suit, he tells them he had it made. And he's not putting them on.

Sammy is particular. He knows we don't manufacture suits. We make them. Much the way a Saville Row tailor makes his. Mostly by hand. We hand-cut the cloth. Then we shape it. And button-hole it. By hand. In all, we put an average of 40% more hand-shaping into our suits than you'll find in other suits that cost as much. Or more. Why? Because it's the only way to be sure that the suit will fit. Precisely. So when a friend asks Sammy who his tailor is, he tells them.

Groshire/Austin Leeds."

"Thank God

I remembered to take Cafiaspirina, the medicine whose effectiveness on my daddy's clientèle I've witnessed on numerous occasions, including desperate cases. I ordered an original tube from the pharmacist. A few minutes after taking two pills I felt complete relief, and on that very evening I achieved a lovely artistic success.

As I think, so do many others. Try it and you'll be convinced."

"Too pretty to get its feet wet.

Shaving by shaving, feather by feather, a wood block takes on life. The shaping of decoys has been a skill in Louisiana for as long as Cajun has been spoken. But this beauty will never flirt with a duck. Her charms are saved for the artistic, the art collectors, for all the admirers of things carved by hand. We at Phillips Petroleum are captivated, too. We try to take as much care when the work we do touches the habitats of wildfowl, as these artists take with their birds. To every last feather."

"Nothing is impossible for people who drink Dr Pepper!

It is said that people who drink Dr Pepper can do anything: dance till dawn, have dimples when they smile, make bushels of money.

And we have a laboratory full of wealthy, dimpled dancers to prove it!

Obviously, Dr Pepper is no dull, run-of-the-mill soft drink. It tastes brighter. And it's really much more than refreshing: it's the real pepper-upper active folks need to keep up with the busy lives they lead.

Now that Dr Pepper is available almost everywhere, there's no reason for anyone to fail at anything! Have a frosty bottle of Dr Pepper and face the world with a conquering heart.

Ha-Ha? We try to make Dr Pepper ads funny (more or less) so you'll enjoy reading them. But we're serious about wanting you to try a carton or two. Dr Pepper is as good as we say it is. But please don't take our word for it. Buy some, instead, today."
