There used to be an advertisement, back in the 40’s or 50’s, I think (long before my time) that advertised a particular brand of car, I think it was Oldsmobile but it might have been Buick. The tagline of the ad was “Ask The Man Who Drives One.” A few years later, the Industrial Safety industry did a particularly effective riff on that ad in their campaign for the use of eye safety equipment. It was a poster that said something like “Eyes are precious. Ask the man who has ONE.” Reply You know what’s worse than snow in your eye? Sand. Wiley Xes for everyone! Reply No eyes? No ears?
