On a similar subject, not necessarily related to "The Jack Benny Program," per se, but I got a copy of the Time magazine published the week I was born. Yes, almost 50 years ago. (If you must know, October 8, 1952.) Inside was an ad for Kool Cigarettes, with two penguins talking. One was a doctor because he had a stephascope around his neck. Anyway, the non-doctor penguin was coughing, and the caption said something like: "Got a cough? Smoke a Kool!" The inferance was when you smoke a Kool Cigarette, you will stop coughing, and feel better. Both penguins had Kools in their mouths and were smiling. I do not believe smoking had/has that effect on people....or penguins! -- Scott P.S. Excuse my typos....It is late.
