"You can take Salem out of the country, but . . .

. . . you can't take the country out of Salem!"

Whether in the country or out of it, Salem refreshes your taste . . . if I might splice together two Salem ads.

Here's the country jingle.

I recall the "out of the country" ad especially well because my hometown of Salem, Arkansas had a great basketball team around that time, so when we went to the state tournament, some of our opponent's fans sang that song against us.

And has anyone else noticed that the ad's jingle pauses after "but" - as though the line were: "You can take Salem out of the country butt . . ."

What's that Hamlet means when he refers Ophelia to "country matters"? Is he asking for a smoke?

Undoubtably yes! What else could it be?
