I've seen so many vintage ads that they rarely shock me anymore. This one shocked me. I know that Ad Men were all about sexists ads but wow. "There there little lady. Don't worry about that nasty war, let your husband figure that out. " "You go shopping for furniture. "   Image via: http://mitchoconnell.blogspot.co.uk Save Save Save … [Read more...]

Albany-Life-1983

Hey Gang, its a new Wordless Wednesday Vintage Ad!! I have seen quite a few weird and bizarre ads but this one really gave me pause. How many men read it and thought?.... "How did they know? I was going to off Helen tonight. I guess I should buy life insurance." Some of the selling points to not killing your wife: "After many hours of work could you face hours of housework?" "Could you be an executive by day and a chambermaid by night?" "Could you afford 2,ooo pounds a year for a cook?" … [Read more...]

  Wow! Could you image putting this on a baby? How on earth could metal wire be a good thing? Mr. Bernie wondered if it was made of lead wire. I wonder who the leading baby specialists were. Back alley butchers? This part slays me, "Sold by surgical dealers, department stores and baby shops." I think its creepy that you can get it a surgical dealer and baby shop. Yikes! This was in a 1932 issue of Good Housekeeping … [Read more...]

Vibra

I have heard of many uses for vibrators over the years but this is new. "Turn it on and relax." I wonder how loud this thing was. "It gives strength and vitality to weak and frail breasts" What in the heck is a weak and fail breast? What do you bet some man invented this? As a gal who has a larger chest, I wonder if wearing it would give me a black eye from the bouncing?   Image Source … [Read more...]

How Are People Finding Me – Part 3

ID-10097392

Welcome to Part 3 of  "How Are People Finding Me"  Every once in a while I dig around in my stats to find out what search terms people are using to find me. The results intrigue me and sometimes scare me a bit as well.  Sometimes I can figure out what post would have popped up on their search, other times I really have no clue how they landed in my little corner of the internet. Let's get started shall we? My first result is the post popular search term for the past week.  "What to do with my empty cigarette packs" Most people just throw them away. However, I'm going to guess that this was the post they found: Purse Porn, a post showing my purse made of cigarette wrappers. That was easy! I hope they are all this easy to figure out. Let's move on to the past 3o days, shall we? This one made me wonder who on earth is actual looking for this and knows the proper term for it. Not 1 but 3 people used this term: "testrone radium energizer"  (spelling was the search term, not mine) I'm … [Read more...]
