I'm not talkin' while the flavor lasts!

Marash Boy's Emi, his father's brother, Uncle Harry, a man of few words, a man who survived the genocide and walked out of Marash during the snowstorm of 1922 . . .  .  Uncle Harry would always steer clear of controversy by commenting with a wry grin, a grin that suggested he had a lot to say about the matter at hand, 
"I'm not talkin' while the flavor lasts!"  

(Uncle Harry was quoting a popular ad for Wrigley's Chewing Gum.  Does anyone remember that ad?)
