Retro - Perspective (4)

You may ask yourself why I post these ads -- politics is too depressing and when you tell a joke about a political candidate that you are sure is too absurd to come to pass, you're often wrong.

On to the retro review of where we were.

Also a potential 'marital aid'.

Back then he kept people interested with his dingo.
Now he's only a spokesman for knife sharpeners.

An advertisement for Pakistan Airways circa 1979.  
I view it as our first warning for 9/11.

I have tried this strategy without success. Maybe
I'm simply not blowing enough smoke in a woman's face?

If your child is acting up, load him to the
gills with barbiturates... Nembutal works!

Wow, they had some really poor ad campaigns back then.

Opus, which is the worst?
(1) Drugging your child with barbs.
(2) Pakistani Airways aircraft headed for the WTC.
(3) The notion that blowing cigar smoke in a woman's face is too sexy for words.

LL they're all horrible, try to blow smoke in my face and you'd get an earful. Give my kids barbiturates and there's another freak out moment, and the worst is number 2 in my opinion. I'd get over the smoke in the face, the child with therapy might turn out alright but the aircraft headed for the WTC is something I don't have to comment on, we are still feeling the effects world wide in my opinion. I agree with Opus.

These are all hilarious...and what's even worse is that they are real ads. I'm still confused about why OJ has 3 legs though???

Darlin - I accidentally deleted your post -- - SORRY!

Let me put this back together since I don't have her response in front of me (Darlin - feel free to comment again).

Darlin doesn't mind if a man blows smoke in her face. She thinks it's ZEXY! She feels as if nembutal is for wimps (bring on the heavy stuff) and as to the marital aid -- why not?
