Truth in Advertising - neither then nor now

First, I have to apologize for the gunshot hole in the middle of this add from 1922, but you do notice the company is in Chicago...bang! bang!  Second, I gotta ask my mom someday....so how did you make it to age 5?  Odds are she was never strapped into one of these death traps. Of course, without one of these, I guess the only other option (until I find an ad for another similar contraption) would be to hold baby in mommy's arms. I still think that would be better than strapping the kid into something that looks like a coffin. Comfy baby? I think not.

The more things change the more they stay the same.....

So, let's all concentrate....Well? Which is it?  Credit goes to my wife for not only buying this, but pointing it out to me as well.

  1. It is awkwardly saying that it contains OJ that is concentrated and OJ that isn't concentrated.
    What gets to me is when I see things like "Dairy-Free Ice Cream". "Dairy-Free Ice Cream" is NOT ice cream; I don't know what it is, but it's not ice cream.


Found something unique? See something here you want to know more about? Start the discussion - I'll respond. Really!
