There She Blows!

A hump like a snow hill!



Does everyone else remember this so vividly?

I remember. No sooo vividly. But I remember.

This post has been on my mind all day.

It occurs to me that I didn't possess the knowledge required to critically evaluate this offer when I saw it as a child on television. For instance, how is it that Moby Dick and White Fang have been edited to the same length? Is this really a bargain at $19.95 plus shipping?

It's kinda like how a Bob Dylan song and a Justin Bieber song are each worth $0.99 at the music sites. I feel there could be some disparity there.

I don't really remember the visuals but the voiceover "There she blows..." is seared into my brain. I read that phrase randomly recently and the whole ad lit up in my brain like I was conked on the head. Childhood memories are lovely things.

It's rather nice to see the whole family reading abridged classics together...
