And Now A Word From Our Sponsor

I always take endorsements from babies, my kids say get Pizza for dinner tonight and I do it. A baby tells me to buy on E-Trade I do it, so I might as well do this too.
Next thing you know she'll want to be driving a car.
Yes, but what man could tame her?
Oh, probably this man.
Oh it relieves fatigue now-if only they made them with sugar too.
There has got to be something else.
A pound and a half a day gives me the energy I need for a grueling day of surfing.
I like that its sanitized, I was getting so tired of unclean worms.
Well since doctors do...
Thats enough for now, go on about your business.

I actually remember when doctors did ads for cigarettes. And when they prescribed them for middle-age women, to help with their nerves.

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

These are so sexist, it makes me mad. No wonder we are still trying to convince men (husbands)that we are worth more than just a housewife.

the tapeworms are disgusting.

M. Gray said...

Oh man the spanking one is hilarious. Boy have times changed.

Lisa said...

Wow . . . those almost leave you speechless.

Tapeworms . . . they're what's for dinner.

I like the sugar ad. Can you imagine the reaction if that one were to run in a magazine today? They'd get sued.

MT said...

Oh my word. Where do you find this stuff?

Ben Hutchins said...

Wowzers. No shame. Thanks for the laugh.

Charles Gramlich said...

Dude, those are messed up. By today's standards at least. Hilarious though.

David J. West said...

Karen-yeah the difference today is things that make the cure worse than the disease.

Tamara-You don't have to convince me.

M.-just a bit.

Lisa-yeah tapeworms are better than FAT according to the add-SURE.

Michelle-its out there, I am here to help. Think of me as an internet antiques picker.

Ben-you bet.

Thanks Charles, I try.

Wow. Just wow.

I saw one once (wish I could find a copy) that was a comic-book-style layout article from the '50s on how a woman should treat her husband when he comes home from work.

It included such gems as

"No matter how hard your day was, his was worse. Give him space."

and

"Make sure the children are clean and dressed in nice clothing. Touch up your makeup and fix your hair. A man wants a family he can be proud of."

Oh, I'm laughing so hard, even though they are absolutely terrifying! Makes you wonder what people will think about our ads fifty years from now. (Tapeworms. I hadn't thought of that solution.)

David J. West said...

Morgan-I know I have seen that before myself but I can't recall where.

Angie-We have our own that stink. Personally I hate all the ones that try to manipulate us through fear-and there are a lot of those.

Krista said...

I, personally, yearn to be tamed. (giggle)

David J. West said...

Krista-that's the impression I had-no wonder you married a principal.

Kimberly said...

Ah, that perfect mingling of hilarious and disturbing!

David J. West said...

I was thinking of you Kim.

Dodi-OK?
