“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.” Sydney J. Harris
Sometimes we all take ourselves too seriously.
Sit back; Relax!
Take a long ride; Relax!
Take a short ride: Relax!
Take a few and do whatever it is that relaxes you!
The Veloramblings are going to take a break for today and we are going to look at some ad’s from the 50’s. This is when women were glamorous…
…..And apparently the men were complete cretins.
Being raised by a single mom I cant imagine that this behavior would fly. A particular story of mom waitressing, man harassing her, and hot coffee ending up in a very sensitive region of the male anatomy comes to mind. Mom didnt, and doesnt put up with nonsense like that. Not to say she doesnt put up with nonsense, just not like that.
So sit back be and be amazed.
The Crack Staff over here at Velorambling (all 1 of us) aims to please and humor. So check out these next few ads. I don’t write them, I just find them, laugh at the absurdity of them, and hope they spread like blerpies. (That is a Stevil patented word and I hope him and his crack staff of 1 don’t sue me for using it)
I posted another ad from this series awhile ago HERE. This was one of the most popular ad’s I’ve posted. Men and women alike were appalled and humored by this one. In particular I recall Fawn saying “AHHH It Burns it BURNS!!” She cracks me up.
ScottiDito the Lamb Chop, thought his wife would enjoy it as well. Get well Lambchop. Throwing yourself on the ground is no way to start a race season.
You really cant make this stuff up. Behold the “Jaw Dropper”
This is how to market an album. Jethro Tull just jumped a few notches in my book. And they were already up there. Ian Anderson playing on one foot, the giant balloon’s at the shows, the back stage passes they gave me when I worked at the Warwick Hotel in Philly, and now this.
The 50’s were amazing. Can you imagine the onslaught of lawsuits that you would get if you published something like these today. I think even PETA would find an angle to sue you. It would probably be for this ad.
Enough for today. Don’t forget to take your vitamins.
