Bric-a-Brac: S is for...

Stork SB

In between doling out the Crackerjack cabbages and soliciting estimates on a Mini Metro from The Price is Right’s baying mob, Leslie Crowther buttonholed housewives from behind his supermarket bunco booth, demanding to know if they, ‘could tell Stork SB from butter’ in a blind taste test that involved scoffing scones in front of a horde of chattering pensioners. Fortunately, they could never tell the difference, and once Les had turned over the mystery plates and confirmed Stork’s triumph, they vowed to spread the yellow gloop on their husband’s meat paste sarnies forthwith. Such was the fame of the Stork commercials at their height that Nookie Bear once responded to a scolding from Roger De Courcey for mumbling with the majestic line, ‘can’t you tell talk from mutter?’
