I googled it before I answered, and there are many variations of the saying. 3 miles, 10 miles, 40 miles, 50 miles, 100 miles. Weird! :lol:

The thing I wondered was, if they're advertising 300 bucks as a bargain price, what's the going rate?? But...it does have a case. Probably a real nice one. :)

This 'Unbelievable Ad' is more for the picture. What is that supposed to be? And how does it have anything at all to do with the ad content?

You got me on that one. I'm stumped. An actor is some kind of costume?? They could have put something like a tragedy and comedy mask and it would have made more sense, it seems.

Yes, I can think of several awards it could win. :roll: I wasn't quite sure what tripe was, so I braced myself and read the Wikipedia article. :? It was once very popular among the British working class, according to the info.
