How’s about cooking somethin’ up with me?…🎶
🔃 A DECENT guy from the Midwest, in 1963
Decided that a can could open sans the old church key…
He came up with the Pull-Tab, the FOCAL point of use
Gave easy access drinking…and the accolades were profuse.
He’d worked for years perfecting it, and now he would adhere
To get the needed patent to protect his new idea.
This way no JACKAL his insight could come along and botch…
He knew he had a winner here, in his belt quite a NOTCH.
So thanks to Ermal Fraze we had this little ring so new
And people at the Patent Place agreed that it CAN DO! 🔃
A new week begins, and today, all of our words are Sweet Repeats. In fact, DECENT and FOCAL were last seen on consecutive days last year. September 3rd gave us DECENT, wth FOCAL being featured here on the 4th, which just happened to be Labor Day. Odd how that WORKed out, right?…But nothing odd about the remaining two words, although JACKAL may have brought the BEAST out in some of us for a moment or two. But having PULLed out the letters we’ll need..it’s time to move on to our cartoons’ solution…Our setting today, is the US PATENT OFFICE, the year 1963. The gentlemen, ERMAL FRAZE, the inventor of the PULL–TAB opener, is shown presenting his design, marked FIGURE 13, to a representative of the Patent Office. It’s said that he was prompted to invent the TAB because, having forgotten his Church Key CAN OPENER at a family picnic, he was forced to OPEN his CANS with a car bumper! I don’t know about you, but I’m SPILL trying to picture it! Anyway, from the look on the rep’s face, we can see that she’s DRINKing it all in…And her excitement tells us that she’s SOLD on the idea. This CAN really make a big difference..and CAN OPEN UP all new doors in the BEVERAGE industry. As a result, in October, 1963, Mr. FRAZE received his Patent, No. 3,349,949, and the rest is FIZZtory! So with our question asking what the Patent Office’s response was…They said that Mr. FRAZE…CAN DO! Well, POP OPEN a cold one for all of us! David’s POURING it on today! Good one, Dave.
Ok, eye candy…The detailed Diagram set on the Easel, definitely STANDS out…But I’m going with the Two CANS on the table…If you look real closely…written across them in script? It says JEFF! Now how’s that for a little POP UP surprise! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And I hope you get to enjoy a SOFT DRINK today…They’re SODALICIOUS! 🔃🙋🏻
