#1LinerWeds From Niels Bohr

One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about Cracker Jack. Candy-coated popcorn, peanuts and a prize — that’s what you get in Cracker Jack!

The commercials with Jack Gilford were classics!

  1. But predicting the past, that’s easy 🤣. I definitely remember jacks. I’d practice for hours. I was never very good but I kept trying.


  2. I remember the commercial. I always liked Cracker Jacks. Still do though maybe not as much as Fiddle-Faddle, Poppycock, or some of the other brands of similar popcorn products.

    When I was very young living in Cleveland OH I had a teenage babysitter who had a brown lunch bag filled with the Crackerjack toys like they had in the fifties. Sometimes she would bring her collection with her to entertain me and my sister. I envied her collection and wished it was mine. She let us look at her prizes, but never let go of them. If she kept them until now they might be worth something.

    1. Remember Screaming Yellow Zonkers? Dad liked Karmelkorn, as I recall. Seems like somehing that would be easy to make, not that I’m going to try.


      1. I do remember the Screaming Yellow Zonkers though I don’t recall that I ever tried them. Karmelkorn is also good. Kettle corn can be pretty good too when it’s made fresh. The prebagged varieties that I’ve tried were not all that good–not sweet enough for me.


  3. And yet we keep on trying, don’t we. You’d think I’d remember that my predictions often mess with my head more often than predict the future!


    1. I never got far enough in Physics to learn about him. I wasn’t especially motivated…

      Jack Gilford was in a bunch of Cracker Jack commercials, all of which are classics today. He was kind of like a big kid himself.
