So looking up drug ad pictures for my last post, I came across this (via AdFreak):
I can’t read the small type, but the gist seems to be: “Is your wife too depressed to cook you breakfast? Pump her full of uppers, and you’ll have eggs and bacon again in no time!”
[Not that I'd really object if anyone wanted to provide me with a steady supply of uppers. In fact, I'd probably cook you breakfast if you did. Huh. Maybe they were onto something here].
More great vintage drug ads here. My second-favorite is probably an ad for barbituates that pictures a man hovering over his conked-out wife, with the text, “When crisis demands quick-acting hypnotics.” Drug your wife, obviously.
