Pyramid Television Ad, late 1980

Pyramid is one of the very few brands that use only 'wave' soldering. A fully-automated process for cent per cent accuracy. The difference between an electronic sewing machine and a crude hand-stitch. Khoj to Chitrahaar non-stop the 48-hour stress test. The best time to service a TV is when it's working perfectly. We call it preventive maintenance. And it's free service to all Pyramid owners. Every three months during the first year, our engineer will pay you a visit. He'll adjust your antenna, clean the set and give it a thorough check-up. Any minor problems are nipped in the bud. 48 hours! What was the need?

Shakespeare, Green Bottle Fly

Thus pour the stars down plagues for perjury. Can any face of brass hold longer out? Here stand I, lady- dart thy skill at me, Bruise me with scorn, confound me with a flout, Thrust thy sharp wit quite through my ignorance, Cut me to pieces with thy keen conceit; And I will wish thee never more to dance, Nor never more in Russian habit wait. O, never will I trust to speeches penn'd, Nor to the motion of a school-boy's tongue, Nor never come in vizard to my friend, Nor woo in rhyme, like a blind harper's song. Taffeta phrases, silken terms precise, Three-pil'd hyperboles, spruce affectation, Figures pedantical- these summer-flies Have blown me full of maggot ostentation. I do forswear them; and I here protest, By this white glove- how white the hand, God knows!- Henceforth my wooing mind shall be express'd In russet yeas, and honest kersey noes. And, to begin, wench- so God help me, law!- My love to thee is sound, sans crack or flaw. - from '
