Burnt Toast Dr. Penfield

Burnt Toast Dr. PenfieldEvery time I smell burnt toast, I ask aloud "burnt toast, Dr. Penfield?

That's what happens when you see this ad a million times during your formative years.

Who else does this? There's no way I'm the only one...

It's like a Pavlov response. You can't not say it. You have to say it with the accent too... makes it more authentic.

The one add I've been trying to find is the anti drinking one where the dad is sitting in his armchair and his son is playing with a plastic General Lee car and the wheel falls off. The son asks his obviously hammered dad to help him fix it - "Sure little buddy" and when he can't fix it he throws the car at him and screams "Goto your room!"

Loved that one..

I loved that drunk dad who couldn't fix his son's General Lee.

In fact, back in 2009, I posted it here:

Yep! Add me to the list. My kids keep asking me what the hell I am talking about. Glad I can finally show them this. Although...not sure I want them stuck with this 'ear worm' either.
