Marceleno Felix's friends often greet him with the question: "Pardon me. Would you have any Grey Poupon?" He always smiles, twitches his heavy black mustache and his ample eyebrows and replies: "But of course." The Mexico-born Felix, 55, is master mustard maker for Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard at the big Nabisco Brands food plant here. "I get the biggest kick out of those Grey Poupon TV commercials," he said.
