Glentex Scarf

I found this "Double Talk" Glentex scarf at my local Goodwill the other day. It was sort of shoved on a hanger with some towels. It caught my eye because I love vintage graphics.
It has seen better has a few rips and repairs, but I really love it....I wouldn't wear it as a scarf....but I would love to frame it just for its fun sayings.

What the heck is the name of that character actor who used to say, "Yeeessssss?????"
This graphic looks like him doesn't it.
* Update! Frank Nelson!!

Have you heard the term "Solid Tomato"? Me neither!!

Did "On the Ball" used to mean dancing? I thought it meant "With it" or "Smart". Right? I find this sooo interesting. (Ok I am a former English teacher word geek)
I'm hooking up with Apron Thrift Girl..come join the fun!
