And I hayulped!
[Shake n Bake TV commercial]
In 1995, a friend of mine posted a request on a USENET discussion board for a sound sample of the woman in a 1960s Shake n Bake (a coating mix) television advertisement saying Its not fried, its Shake n Bake – and I helped! in which helped! sounds more like hayulped! A short while later, a woman posted a WAV-format sound file along with her reply that read something like this:
I dont have the actual commercial, but a lot of my friends tell me that I sound just like her ... so I made my own recording of it.
This pretty much cemented the use of the phrase and I hayulped
when someone definitely wasnt hayulping.
