Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Yes me too...I think the advice for wives to cry and for husbands to get to the store before they start is hilarious!! Must have been a man who thought that one up ;)

Picture my happiness when on the first Christmas I was married, I opened up the large package given to me and that creep gave me a Hoover vacuum. Idiot!!! I still haven't forgotten about it - as you can tell. :)

Laura said...

Oh my goodness! What a laugh!
Hard to pick a favorite, but starting babies on cola? doctors smoking Camels? or the young mother and her baby benefiting from Blatz Beer? Too funny! We've come a long way, baby!

Patricia said...

Soda and Beer! I'm gobsmacked! I can't believe what they used to promote as good for you. Thankfully we've changed. Makes you wonder though ~ What do we have now that will make our grandkids cringe in the future?.

Deb said...

Snicker, snicker, snort:)The beer ad just floors me.

Donna said...

LOL, good grief! Those are great!!! I think it is a toss up between the beer for young mothers or the vacuum present under the Christmas tree!

Elle Bee said...

Oh my goodness!! How funny! My favorite was the one advocating for early-start soda! Crazy!

Donna said...

I think they are all hilarious! Love that you shared these :)
Hugs,

Ahahaha I love the beer for babies!!! Of course the Dr one is hilarious too, as I am a nurse!

Clint said...

These are great! I guess you'd put the soft drink in a bottle with a nipple on it?

And smoking is HEALTHY!

And a busy wife is a happy wife. Uh huh......

Lynne said...

I loved these and SOOOO happy we have moved forward and aren't there any more.

The doc with the cigarette, the baby and CocaCola were my OMG . . .

Snappy Di said...

I remember one Christmas when my husband (not my current husband) gave me a vacuum cleaner as my gift. UGH... I was NOT happy, so don't believe that Hoover ad, Ladies! LOL

Karen said...

WOW... how about that Blatz beer!...lol...

jane augenstein said...

How funny! Yay, boy would I be thrilled to get a Hoover for Christmas.....NOT! LOL Times sure have changed, fun to look back though. Thanks for the laugh!! ;-)

They are all so funny that it's hard to choose...but starting a child EARLY on sugary sodas for a lifetime of guaranteed happiness TOPS my list! OH MY! ♥

Rural Revival said...

OH MY!!! Cola for babies! The earlier they start, they're more likely to fit in. Fit in to what??!!

Lylas!

Jeanette said...

Wow! I wonder how many women spent their days drinking beer and nursing their babies!

Country Dreaming said...

Oh good grief! Way to funny!

Yes, let's keep on moving!

The man who gives me, unasked for, appliances for Christmas will be using them the next year. Appliances aren't a good idea...now a new piece of farm equipment...yeah!
The baby and Co-Cola advertisement...that's when Coke still had cocaine in the ingredients. As to "fitting in and gaining acceptance", God spare me. I still don't drink soft drinks other than my yearly root beer float.

allhorsestuff said...

Oh man yea, sure glad those days are over! The PEP one got me to laughing and ....I was shocked with the COKE and the BABY -starting them EARLIER on it!

Neat look through the past Mish

Love them all, but as for me... I'll take some of the Kelloggs Pep Vitamins. Goodness knows, this little wifey needs a whole dang bunch o' those!! :D -Tammy

Blatz beer for moms and babies, by far, is my favorite! lol, that was not the advice I got from my OBGYN! Thanks for sharing :) Always love your blog.
