My Lines! My Lines! I Can't Remember My Lines

I was chatting with some co-workers the other day about commercials and one of them mentioned that the Detroit Zoo was running some of their older commercials and especially one particular classic commercial that they ran for YEARS back in the 80's. We found it on YouTube and it is funny how something like this can be stored almost hidden in one's memory for *years* but almost perfectly. I mean, I havent thought about this commercial EVER that I can think of and yet when I saw it running again, I was able to go along with it perfectly while anticipating the next line. Weird. I guess I can remember my lines after all

Hmm... I'm not sure I would be able to remember the lines of old commercials exactly but who knows, I have not tried yet.
I missed you very much & BTW, I plan to write about you for blogday post, if you dont mind.

IslandJen. I think they would sometimes play this commercial on public television. I seem to remember that Channel 56 has been picked up by several Canadian cable companies. So it is possible that if you had cable back then you very well might have seen this. Or who knows? Maybe other zoos used it?

Proshat, I missed you too. And of course I dont mind if you write about me for blogday (although I dont know what that is) What an honor. Thank you.
