    Talking Vintage Ads



    Take a look at these hilarious, non-pc, and in some cases down right dangerous old ads.

    And yes, I remember a couple of them.

    The Volkswagon ad was pretty funny
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    Wow, those were interesting

    I will be trying the bacon cooked into my pancakes for now!
    Somebody Please, what the hell is that smell?

    "The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was 'committed'."

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

    Judging by recent reports now I'm not so sure those aren't your bite marks in that VW.

    Until the late 60's, the water in Europe was generally unsafe to drink; that where bottled water got its start. In france, wine was the choice; watered down for children uneter 16. In Germany, it was BEER, (liquid bread) If you were not so well off, or lived on farms, etc., beer was a part of your diet at meals. Not talking about litres, but a glass or two. When German immigrants came to the US, their customs came with then, thus Blatz's ad. Up to the end of WWII, kids in the bigger northern cities of working class families used to run down to the local bar for a "bucket of beer" for the old man's dinner when he came home from the factory, or whatever. (yours truly included) BTW, Blatz wasn't a bad beer.

    Original Pancake House in Five Points South in Birmingham does those very well.

    I actually liked it as a kid. Never had more than a sip or two at a time but always got some when Dad opened a can. I remember that he'd salt the rim of the can before drinking, and even now I'll do it too. It's still in production but can be tricky to find.

    They're actually still recommending beer for new mothers who are breast feeding... which is how I'm reading that ad. (The rest of the stuff about water vs beer is legit, too, of course!) It's supposed to help bring the milk in or some such...

    Eh, they don't actually recommend that anymore. Doctors are worried, of course, about the alcohol transmitting to baby through the breast milk, and really, it doesn't help milk production at all.

    I don't know; they recommended it to my wife last year! I'm not saying they said "go out and drink a 12 pack" -- but they did suggest having a beer.
