Strange and hilarious old print ads

I have a dear old friend who's always sending me her "forwarded" emails, and they're usually weird and funny, and sometimes hilarious. So today I got one that's good enough to share with my friends on DU.

It's a collection of old magazine and newspaper ads of products that are either gone, or else marketed completely differently now. Some you might recognize, but the ads are funny because the messages are so politically incorrect. Most of these are from the 1940's and 50's I think. The Atari ad had to be later, maybe from about 1975 or '80.

4. Love this!

Back in the 60's my parents and grandparents used to explore old deserted houses. Mainly found old bottles, but other cool stuff too. I wonder how our stuff will be laughed at in 70 years.
