Today I bought a box of Pez dispensers with various presidents faces on them ranging from 1825 - 1845. When I flipped the box over, I found the following statement in the description.
PEZ has been an iconic brand for over 50 years. With great tasting flavors and collectable dispensers...
The first sentence of this description prompted me to think about the following...
How did they decide that they should say "over 50 years"? Let me clarify, when a company is say... 55 years... Is it proper to say "over 50 years" until reaching an age of 60? Or should it be a longer period?
Note: PEZ was invented in 1927 but they are saying "over 50". They could easily say over 75. In fact I have seen "over 75" by some companies.
