I was perusing some vintage ads today, which I always get a kick out of and found a couple I wanted to share:
You never see ads like this anymore. Nothing like being really blunt about body size. These men don't see to mind, though. They're farmers and honest as sod. "Howdy there! I'm short and fat!" says one. "Really?" says the other. "Well, I'm tall and fat! How about that?"
The other one I loved was this one: (I hope you can read it!)
Imagine, stale coffee making you snap at your man? I never knew. And here I always thought it was a chemical imbalance brought on by horror-moans surging through my body every 28 days. Geewhiz - what a dingbat I am! I try to make sure (for Gary's sake) that my coffee is always fresh now.
Ahhhhh - if all life's problems could be solved so easily.
