Healthy Living...All it's cracked up to be?

I love to look at ads from the past, a couple of nights ago I couldn't sleep and found these helpful (not) little "gems". Makes it hard to believe that any of our ancestors even stuck around long enough to procreate the next generation! Hmm...Beer for babies, smokin' mamas, arsenic and tape worms, apparently I have been going about this weigh loss and parenting thing all wrong!

Maybe that would have helped Joey sleep through the night.....

One dollar for nothing! Surely they jest!  One dollar can buy you white skin, deathly pallor, arsenic poisening...all for 100 pennies, 20 nickels, 10 thin silver dimes or 4 quarters!  A bargain!

What is his name - so I can never go to him!  Eeeww!

Mmmmm...lard.  Does anyone else feel queasy?
Is it my imagination or is mom looking at them like they are crazy?
Or is she just thinking about her "stylin" swimming suit and wonding if she is showing just a little too much skin?  What will all of the ladies say at the country club?  Silly lady, they won't care because they are too busy smoking and eating lard!

No more toothache, wait, are those children creepy or is it just me?
 How can they build a house out of sticks if they are high on cocaine? 

Uh, there are so many things to say about this,
 I can't even sort and process them because my "smart a**" filter is on overload.  :-)

What!  You mean I have been killing myself at the gym and all I had to do is this! 
Uhg, this is gross on so many levels, and I can not believe that people were really stupid enough to do this.  Maybe all of the cocaine and arsenic helped. 

All I can say is that I think that Mr. Twain was right on this one.  Be careful of advertising - it's a killer. 
 I can't wait to see what I find on my next sleepless night.

LOVE them! (...I wonder where to buy tapeworms these days...ewwww).

Yuck, yuck and more yuck! How thankful I am for modern medicine!

Joan said...

I am seriously considering the tape worm as long as it is sanitized.

I have 15 cents. I think I might be able to buy some good vibrations with it.
