Sunday night, I got home from a day-long trip to Brooklyn (and Queens), and as I write this, I’m too exhausted to put together a proper post. I’m also still recovering from car sicknesses. In place of a normal post, I thought I’d showcase some of the vintage ads I’ve virtually collected.
How much a word’s most popular, common meaning and usage can change over time!
How could so many doctors in different countries be wrong?
That’s not how weight loss works!
I love smoking hookah, though it’s not something I do on any sort of regular basis. Smoking cigarettes as an asthmatic is out of the question!
What won’t they cure?
Wonder what these people thought constituted “senile agitation.”
I doubt I would’ve touched Spork or Speef even before I went kosher or vegetarian!
There goes the fun and satisfaction of barbecuing.
It made sense in the era before almost everyone had modern refrigeration.
Doctors recommended women douche with Lysol for birth control and hygiene for decades.
Dude, your definition of suffering doesn’t even come close to what I’ve gone through with dysmenorrhea for 23 years! Sympathy with others’ pain isn’t the same as going through exactly what they do.
Do you enjoy collecting and/or seeing vintage ads? Do you have a favorite category? Do you find some of these old ads’ claims to be more funny or shocking?
