    Oh. My. Gosh. You. Are. Kidding. These ads were real??? I’m sitting here with my jaw on my foot! I don’t know what emotion to feel — shock or hilarity — or both! Good grief, Charlie Brown!

    • I wonder what the future generations will make of us in 50 years time πŸ˜‰ I’m still sitting on a stack of ads that are so out there that I dare not post them. One day, when I’m feeling bold perhaps πŸ˜‰

        Oh pleeeeeeeeeeeease post them.

        You know what else you could do? This would make a great “table” book — one you put on a table in the room where everyone visits? You could compile them and then market it to a place to sell it like Cracker Barrel and partner up with a group like Gooseberry Patch. I think it would be a hit. It has that combination of whimsical and nostalgic and zany that people love. Listen to me … marketing your ads. ;-D

            LOL — do it TONIGHT and let me know when it’s up. I’m dying here.

            PS I emailed your blog to all of my relatives this morning who are in their 70s and 80s. They are in hysterics.

          • I’ll do it, I promise! And soon! I’m so happy you enjoyed the post. It makes it so much more enjoyable to be able to share with others πŸ˜‰

    Mind you, times have changed but advertisements are just as ridiculous now. Think Viagara commercials, or the pharmaceutical ones that list all the things that MAY GO WRONG if you take their meds.( in North America
    anyway)

    One thing that has not changed is that there continues to be a billion dollar industry trying to distort the consumer’s thinking in order to get us to buy crap.

    A very interesting blast from the past Pinup! Makes one think.

    • So soooo wrong, I agree Gracie. My friend works as a copywriter for a giant cosmetic company. He’s responsible for catalogues etc. We always get a good giggly at the mistakes that appear there. And those are unintentional!
      When I was living in NY, I was shocked at the disclaimers that appeared after a pharmaceutical comercial. Really, would you buy a product that, as the ad states, may cause explosive diarrhea???
