As I sit here drinking a beer, I had a random memory. Years ago, driving in St Louis, MO, I heard a radio ad for Budweiser beer talking about their proud history of sponsoring auto racing. The ad closed with the line “we’ve been in cars as long as we’ve been in cans.”


I had this immediate “Did they just say that?” reaction. That evening I heard the ad again, with that same line, so yes, they did just say that.

I never heard that ad again.
