    well swelp me, missus, now I know what I’ve been missing…

  3. So sad. In another 100 years, I wonder if they’ll look back and wonder how we were so backwards.

  4. We with will always yearn for something just makes you wonder how much stranger can we get.

  6. I love old ads like this.
    “Loads of new friends, and good times.”
    I wonder, what kind of new friends, what kind of good times?

  7. Ah, yes, the good ol’days.

    I’m still laughing at the before/walking-stick drawing. Wonder what overeager ad man lies behind the Olive Oyl-look-alike πŸ˜€

  8. It’s good to have aspirations, though…
