Archimedes - crips advert of years ago
« on: 11/06/2008 23:52:59 »
Many years ago (early 1990's I guess) there used to be an advert on the commercial radio stations that went like this:

(read it with a northern-ish accent, and "bath" to rhyme with "Kath")
'Ere I am, in my bath, for purely gastronomic reasons to do with Walker's Crisps.
The bath, after all, is where the great mathematician Archimedes discovered his famous principle - that is
(spoken very quickly) "the apparent loss in weight of a body immersed in liquid is equal to the weight of the displaced liquid"
Awww - if Archimedes could work that out in the bath, then I'm sure I can discover why it is that Walker's crisps always taste so good.

'Owever, I've been 'ere for three days now, and all I've discovered so far is that bathwater makes yer crisps soggy.

(fades out) 'ello Mr Ducky

I'll never forget Archimedes principle!

It'd be a laugh if you could get your hands on a copy of the radio advert. But I suspect licensing stuff would prevent you from playing it :-(
