Signs That Caught My Glass Eyes









Vintage Ads That Wouldn’t Fly Today



Malt “supplies nourishing qualities” for mom and baby! So that’s why mom was always hammered.




They date other people? What a concept. Probably offensive to some.


“Human Mileage” counts. So, I guess she’s worth about $1.55?


This is so offensive it must hurt feminists’ eyes.

Carole Lombard was white, so I guess no harm, no foul?



I think they meant she was a bad speller or something.

This Rule Totally Backfired

In 1858 the big bad British Empire began colonial rule over India. There were a lot of cobras slithering around Dehli acting like they owned the place and British officials were not having it.

So they threw some money at the problem and offered a bounty to anyone who brought them dead cobras. People realized this was easy money, so instead of catching the cobras people started breeding them and killing them in their own homes. Dehli was now full of snake sex dens full of cobras. When officials caught on, the bounty was cancelled, and all the snakes became homeless when they were released into the wild.

While We're on Government Screw Ups ... Here's a Local One


We got this “Pay Your Taxes Securely Online” notice in the mail today along with our property tax bill.

Our tax money at work paying for a brochure that describes something we can’t do!

Photos That Caught My Glass Eyes

Slippery little thing …

Send in the Clowns

This clown-filled ad is for all of (us) who think we’re the only ones on the highway who know how to drive. All the other drivers are “clowns.”

European Christmas Ads are More “Humorous” than “Joyous” 


Perhaps the festive season isn't all it's cracked up to be? This clip from Scandinavian hardware giant, Clas Ohlson puts a distinctly humorous but depressing spin on the season to be jolly.
