Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

When Brylcreem was forced to issue a disclaimer
On the vertical hair of Michael Richards's Kramer
No shock waves hit the set of Seinfeld
But the action caused a legal minefeld.

Brylcreem....now there is a blast from the past. I didn't even know they made that stuff anymore! lol

Alas poor Richard, all bryllo, little creem
Sandi
oh yes, and Mac has been taking it easier the past few days...seems he knows his wife...I don't threaten without backup...in cop vernacular, 10-8 10-24 on the Mac situation for now...you notice I said "for now"...

Blast from the past is right! I Googled the stuff and they have a nice web page with a really hot guy and the suggestion to also try aqua velva. LOL

If no one has ever seen a Brylcreem ad, here's a link for a YouTube video of a vintage one.

Peace!

Sounds like greasy legal stuff to me.

Ugh, Brylcreem, my fathers pillowcase always reeked of it!

Loved the rhyme.

Brylcreem ...... Every man who was of any worth wore the stuff at one time. Marked all the backs of chairs & put "grease" over everything.

You couldn't get a proper DA without Brylcreem!

CrazyCath said...

Brylcreem disclaimed
Straight hair when it rained,
Legal department declared
That Seinfield not aired!

Woo!

Great poem. Brylcreem - yuk!

A nostalgic hair product
Made my mind go astray
To jingles and slogans
From my childhood day
I've got to give credit
Where credit is due ya
Like Brylcreem itself
A little dab'll do ya

And when your post also quoted
A favourite show
I thought of one line
I want you to know
Remembering Elaine
And how she did shout
With a shove to the chest
And a surprising "Get OUT!"
