Silly Stuff – Ads That Would Never Be Allowed Today

I saw the link to a website that featured these ads on Twitter. I wish I remembered who posted it there because I would thank them for this. I laughed out loud when I saw these, but not really because they were so funny. I laughed at how ridiculous they were and how, at some point and not that long ago, this was life. This was acceptable thinking and behavior. It’s amazing how far society has come in such a short time…and thank goodness for that.

I hope these entertain you as much as they did me. 🙂

Vitamins for pep?!  She would need them if she was expected to take care of everything and still put out in the evenings…

Wow…  Just wow.

Then – every boy had a gun.  Now – I would never let my kids have a toy gun.

Ew.  That is all.

*jaw hits floor*

I don’t think you need to read French to understand this one, but I’ll explain anyway.  Lady on left drinks beer and baby is strong and eating.  Lady on right is not drinking beer and her baby is small, weak and refusing to eat.  Okay, yep.  Whatever.

More doctors smoke Camels?!?!  LOLOL

Wow…  This is just all kinds of wrong.

Oh well, thank goodness for that.

I want to pull her up, smack her a little, then punch him in the gut.  Then in the nose.  Am I the only one?

Can you believe that the world was once filled with openly pompous and ridiculous men?!  I know they still exist, but at least they are not really out in the open anymore…

  1. LOL, I had a discussion in the car yesterday with my 9yo daughter about what it means to live in a patriarchial society. I should show her these ads!

  2. What’s with the ads with kids and guns? O.o

    Show her it’s a man’s world? Love how she is basically kneeling before her husband master. heh.

  10. ‘She would need them if she was expected to take care of everything and still put out in the evenings…’
