* Farfel the dog, the ventriloquist dummy mascot for Nestlé back in the 1950s and '60s, would end his familiar jingle (N-E-S-T-L-E-S/Nestlé's makes the very best/chaaaw-klit) with a "chomp" sound. This was because Jimmy Nelson -- who performed him -- was nervous during the auditions, causing his sweaty hand to slip off the mouth control.
