Game 5, Round 8 — Advertising Slogans and Jingles
Here is your opportunity to gain some benefit from all those memory cells of yours that advertisers
have taken over for their own purposes. For each of the following slogans or jingles, identify the
product referred to. You must give both the brand name and and a generic description: for example,
"Ritz crackers".
QM: Please read each one as ordinary prose — do not chant, sing, do accents, etc.
