LOVE these!

Priceless! I remember my Mama used to say my brother must have a tape worm because he ate a lot and didn't get fat. Gay used to mean something different then it means today. My have things changed.

That is funny!

I love the old ads! The smoking a fag definitely means something else now! It's amazing to see how much ideas have changed. I can't imagine Budweiser advertising the benefits of their beer for mom and baby!

Come and enter my giveaway!

Hahahahaha! Had a good laugh looking at all these old ads. I well remember that more Doctors smoked Camels than any other cigarette. That's about the time I was trying to roll my own. My wife doesn't want to ever go on another cruise because the one we took in '08 had a dozen transvestites and/or CDs on board. Thanks for the laughs.
