Summary
  • This hilarious treasury celebrates an age of innocence (or idiocy) when advertisers could tell us any old thing. These ads present the possibly true but strangely presented: a gal combing her sleeping guy's trousers in search of war-bond dollars, a wife in love with cutlery. Unhealthy claims include soda-pop promoted as a baby drink, and bone-crushing corsets urged for little girls. Among other dubious propositions are the chin-reducing head cage and "bilebeans" as the key to physical fitness. Outrageous Ads reminds us not to believe everything we're sold
