  2. Thank you, queuno! I wonder every time whether this gag has run its course and I’m the only one still enjoying the sugar ads. I’ll keep posting them, knowing that you like ‘em too.

  3. I guess I should start looking for others. What is the group title in the Index?

  4. There’s an “Advertisements” section, with a “Sugar Advertisements” sub-group.

  6. Sweet are the uses of adversity….

    No one at my Uncle’s farm in Idaho used to say that when I was thinning those seemingly endless rows of sugar beets in the hot sun as a 12 year old. Yeah, the gag has not yet run its course yet, because I will admit I was wondering what kind of message would there be in the Children’s Friend about adversity. I was surprised, then did the palm-to-face smack and thought, “Doh!” when I saw the U&I ad.
