What Were They Thinking?
(Above) My vote for the worst.
I HAVE TO TELL YOU, some of these ads from the 1950s and 60s are so-o wrong, I almost feel bad showing them. Still, I think it is good to see just how far we have come in one lifetime. As for the ads that denigrate women, to think there are still women today who think “equal rights” for women are bad— or that heroes like Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinhem were somehow not patriotic Americans.
As for the tobacco companies, they have been censured and fined but they will still look for creative ways to sell their death sticks—if not for Americans, then to the rest of the world.
As for the last image of the pig cutting himself up, just gross.
