I'm going to ask a younger person's question, What in the world is "Burma Shave"? I know who the Statler Brothers are as my parents listened to them, but enlighten this younger person on the Burma Shave thing.

Burma Shave was a shave cream. They advertised along the road with small signs spaced about a hundred yards apart that contained a numerous limerick. They were a welcome relief to long trip monotony. Back the. The radio reception was spotty on long drives.

You know you have been around when you remember when the song came out, and also many Burma Shave sayings.

Counting flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo
Now don't tell me I've nothing to do.

I'm only 47 but I do remember the sayings, we had a Burma Shave book with the sayings in it, still remember some..
If you don't like traffic fines, slow down so you can read these signs....Burma Shave
