    Or Langrock’s demise might be due to having the goofy stockboy who’s failing poli sci write the ads.

    The cliché was “Comes the revolution”, not “Come the revolution”.

    Here’s the source for those readers who are too young to be familiar with the phrase:

    In the Broadway production of “Ballyhoo of 1932”, a soap-box orator told some bums about the glories of Communism. “Comes the revolution,” he declared, “everyone will live the good life and eat strawberries and cream”. “I don’t like strawberries and cream!” responded one of his listeners. “Comes the revolution,” the orator declared, “You’ll eat strawberries and cream—and like it!”

  3. @ Minimalist very interesting thank you for sharing that.

    general comment, this ad seemed to be a favorite for the folks at Langrock. I say that because they had it framed up and put in the shop.
