Chip Shot: My girlfriend told me “Vacation sex is the best!” That wasn’t a good postcard to receive.

Can’t believe this product didn’t become popular! (Thanks for sending this vintage ad to me, Chuck Lyons.)

 

 

Signs That Caught My Glass Eyes

 

Horse funerals? Funny.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 (We gotta get this fixed.)

This is Uncomfortably Funny

 


This new ad for Fiat 500 is uncomfortably funny. But it you live in Wisconsin, you’ll understand it.

Hilarious Child Tantrum Prevention … “We Didn’t Know She’d Cry so Much”

 


Okay, here’s how to deal with those “wallet-draining crap-factories” known as “children.” For only 23 easy payments of $1.99 you can own a bottle of “NapTime.” Plus you’ll receive a “Dream Sack” for no extra charge.” “Samantha hasn’t made a noise in weeks.” It’s wrong … but it’s funny.

If You Don’t Know Me by Now …

 

Amstel Beer says, “If you don’t know me by now …,” in this entertaining ad.

I’m 85 and I Want to Go Home

 

The subject of this ad is serious, but the ad itself is hilarious. I think I saw quite a few of Dale’s friends in the background.

Some of this guy’s holiday lawn decorations were stolen from his front yard. So he replaced them with photos of the thief.

Vintage Advertising

This ad is for Listerine … but also for 25 cent Shaving Cream? By the way, Listerine was originally sold as a hair tonic. I have no idea who was brave enough to first gargle with that nasty stuff.

 

 

I got nothin …

 

 

 

If only that cheap bastard dad of mine had purchased life insurance I could buy those skates!

 

 

 

"Easy terms," for $9.95? And money back if not satisfited ... of course you'll be dead, so ....
