  What to get for the man who is hard to shop for. Seriously? Who would even do this? Who would want it? How is this a good idea?  "Cover your lips in goo" is a HUGE selling point. "(Can we cast other things?  You bet-name it and we'll quote)"  I'll give you two guesses of what else they would cast.   Image Source … [Read more...]

My first Wordless Wednesday and I'm so confused! What is a "flu hangover"? Does this cure hangovers or depression? Heck ya I'd be happier too if I was drunk all the time. If you read the testimonial it says, "Before I had finished the first bottle it gave me new energy and the awful depression was lifted" "Sold by Wine Merchants, Licensed Chemists and Stores" In essence you could get this at the liquor store, pharmacy or other store. Call a spade a spade, it was booze!   Image Source … [Read more...]

Ohhhhh and Ahhhhhhhh Which of these items would please you the most? In the day I'm sure they were lovely gifts and on every wife's dream list. How excited would you be to get a new iron as a gift?

_________DDT-Wallpaper1

Just when I think that vintage ads couldn't shock me....... I was looking for funny vintage New Year's ads and was shocked! Who in the hell would put wall paper covered in DDT in their kids room??! "Tested and commended by Parents magazine" "Look kids its Donald Duck wallpaper. It will keep you safe from bugs." I can't imagine hanging that wallpaper couldn't be harmful. I hope the kids who had it on their walls weren't wall lickers. You should be able to click this a couple of times to make it bigger and read all about it.   Vintage Ad Source … [Read more...]

____________Faces

These masks are fun and creepy. I don't get why these are, "Fun for the Christmas Party". Who goes to a Christmas party wearing a creepy latex mask? The fact that you can smoke in them is a huge plus!   Vintage image source … [Read more...]
