Gimmick – Gridiron – Anything

Hi Everyone!

Word of the Day Challenge!

How many items have you heard that sound good, but turn out to be a gimmick just to get your money.

  • How about when you need a new/used car?
  • Here comes five (5) salespersons heading towards you. You watch them as they get closer, closer, closer and then one of them pulls out this beautiful set of silverware. “Free if you buy from me!”
  • You think what a gimmick!
  • Next one comes to you and  surprise here’s a gift card worth $500.00, if you buy your car from me!
  • You’re ready to grab and then you stop wondering what is the gimmick on this one?
  • And now the next comes towards you with a cooler filled with coupons.
    • All of a sudden all the salespersons say “Hey what just happened?” As they are watching you running out of the showroom.

You made a smart choice.

As guests walk thru the door they smell chili, Italian beef, polish sausage, and much more.
Now for the side lines there’s dips, chips, pretzels, cookies, cakes, pops, water, water with flavors. See the source imageYou name it, it’s here.

Fandango’s One Word Challenge!

Song below is a toe tapper! Anything Goes by Cole Porter. No I wasn’t born yet. Most people back then heard it on the radio. If you don’t know the words by heart from the older generation out there, words are below. Enjoy!

Times have changed,
And we’ve ofter rewound the clock
Since the puritans got a shock
When they landed on Plymouth rock
If today any shock they might try to stem
’stead of landing of Plymouth rock
Plymouth rock would land on them.

In olden days a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking
But now God knows
Anything goes

Good authors to
Who once knew better words
Now only use four letter words
Writing prose
Anything goes

If driving fast cars you like
If low bars you like
If old hymns you like
If bare limbs you like
If Mae West you like
Or me undressed you like
Why nobody will oppose

When every night
The set that’s smart
Is intruding on nudist parties
In studios
Anything goes

When Mrs. Ned McClean God bless her
Can get Russian reds to yes her
Than I suppose
Anything goes

When Rockafeller still can hoard
Enough money to let Max Gordon
Produce his shows
Anything goes

The world has gone mad today
And good’s bad today
And black’s white today
And days night today
And that gent today
You gave a cent today
Once owned several châteaux

When folks
See the source imageWho still can ride in Jitney’s
Find out Vanderbilts and Whitney’s
Lack baby clo’es
Anything goes

When Sam Goldwyn
Can with great conviction
Instruct Anna Sten in diction
Than Anna shows
Anything goes

When you hear that
Lady Mendl standing up
Now turns a handspring landing up-
On her toes
Anything goes

Just think of those shocks you’ve got
And those knocks you’ve got
And those blues you’ve got
From those news you’ve got
And those pains you’ve got
(if any brains you’ve got)
From those little radios

So Mrs. R.
With all her trimmin’s
Can broadcast a bed from Simmon’s
Cause Franklin knows
