Funny/Scary ads from the past

With all the talk about the quality of ads during the superbowl I decided to take a look into the past at different ads.

Healthy Living...All it's cracked up to be?

"Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint."
—Mark Twain

Goiter Free!!! Ha that is awesome!

This is just a sad advertizement.

Dr. Batty's Asthma Cigarettes
Cigarettes with unknown contents claimed to provide temporary relief of everything from asthma to colds, canker sores and bad breath. "Not recommended for children under 6."

Mmmmm...lard. Does anyone else feel queasy?
Is it my imagination or is mom looking at them like they are crazy?
Or is she just thinking about her "stylin" swimming suit and wonding if she is showing just a little too much skin? What will all of the ladies say at the country club? Silly lady, they won't care because they are too busy smoking and eating lard!
I think babies are too early to start cola, wow!

No more toothache, wait, are those children creepy or is it just me?
How can they build a house out of sticks if they are high on cocaine?

Uh, there are so many things to say about this,
I can't even sort and process them because my "smart a**" filter is on overload. :-)

What! You mean I have been killing myself at the gym and all I had to do is this!
Uhg, this is gross on so many levels, and I can not believe that people were really stupid enough to do this. Maybe all of the cocaine and arsenic helped.

All I can say is that I think that Mr. Twain was right on this one. Be careful of advertising - it's a killer.
