My favorite Cartoon of all time

This proves that Fred and Barney were just a couple of regular guys that anyone can relate to. Who better to  peddle your beer than Bedrock's finest.

I remember when...

I miss the good old days when cartoon bears sold beer and could make a good living at it. I suppose that's what happens when the do-gooders stop the beer companies from marketing to kids. I hate PC.

A random thought...

My Paternal grandmother is named Margaret, but as long as I can remember, we always called he Grandma Peg. As I got older I realized that Peggy was a pet name for Margaret much in the same way that Rick or Dick is for Richard or Bill is for William. For years I pondered how you get from Margaret to Peg, but really never asked anybody or lost any sleep over it. One day last week I found this anonymous poem. Whether it is correct or not...I don't know. But for me...this mystery is solved.

 In search from A to Z they passed, 

And "Marguerita" chose at last; 
But thought it sound far more sweet 
To call the baby "Marguerite." 
When grandma saw the little pet, 
She called her "darling Margaret." 
Next uncle Jack and cousin Aggie 
Sent cup and spoon to "little Maggie." 
And grandpapa the right must beg 
To call the lassie "bonnie Meg." 
From "Marguerita" down to "Meg," 
And now she's simply "little Peg."
