What Jingles Can't You Forget?

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. "1-877-KARS-4-KIDS. K-A-R-S KARS-4-KIDS. 1-877-KARS-4-KIDS, donate your car today." I find myself humming this radio jingle at least once a day. What jingles have been lodged in your head for years?

2. Fast forward 10 years. How will you get your local news in 2021? Do you think something like the AOL Patch model can be sustainable? Will independent newspapers/websites be able to generate enough revenue to employ professional journalists? Should we bring the town crier back?

3. Last week, Cole Gamble told us about four upcoming questionable toy-to-movie adaptations (including Battleship). We can do better. What's something you think should be made into a movie? Could be a moment in history, someone's life story, a book, TV show or, if you like, a toy or game.

4. Can I get you a drink? (I can't really. Stay with me.) But pretend I could get you a drink. Any drink. Coffee, soda, beer, wine, tea, juice, flavored water, or your choice of spirit, served any way you wish. What would you order?

Enjoy the weekend!
