These provide an interesting social commentary......

The above ad states:

Though she was a tiger lady, our hero didn’t have to fire a shot to floor her.
After one look at his Mr. Leggs slacks, she was ready to have him walk all over her.
That noble styling sure soothes the savage heart! If you’d like your own doll-to-doll carpeting, hunt up a pair of these he-man Mr. Leggs slacks.
Such as our new automatic wash wear blend of 65% Dacron and 35% rayon incomparably wrinkle-resistant.
About $12.95 at plush-carpeted stores.

Some excerpts from the ad above: It says- this young man is 11 months old- and he isn’t our youngest customer by any means.

For 7-Up is so pure, so wholesome; you can even give it to babies and feel good about it.
-By the way, Mom, when it comes to toddlers- if they like to be coaxed to drink their milk, try this: Add 7-Up to the milk in equal parts, pouring the 7-Up gently into the milk.

It’s a wholesome combination- and it works!
Now we know the origins of ADHD......



A modern advert. Anything suggested here?

Most are kind of amusing, but that one for Love's Baby Soft is just wrong, no matter what generation it came from.
