Hello Dear Readers! Well another week has rolled more or less away, and as we slide into Friday on this last day of November, we have to ask ourselves what was going on with ads from 1953? (See how I did that great segue way? Who says things don’t get done right on Friday.)
Here are some ads from a magazine called Better Living from 1953 that for some reason, my brain, Peanuts, insisted on boiling down into limericks.
There once was a product named Kleenex
That met you half-way when you sneezed next
Little LuLu and Godfrey
Got paid by the wad, see?
To get Father some money for Xanax.
When poor fifties Mom must relax
After featherdust-wacking does tax
She chews Beechnut Gum
But it makes her feel glum
What she needed was Father’s Xan-ax!
There once was a little food dude
Who claimed Wilson’s B-V was a food
It subtracted from rents
Just one point five cents
But to like it, you had to be stewed.
There once was a man who wore lipstick
People thought him the consummate dipstick
He drank coffee that sounded
Like a law firm compounded
So his wife mixed his cream with some arsenic
And there you have it, Dear Reader, the first installment and quite possibly the last installment of Limericks Base on Ads from 1953.
Until next time . . . I love you
