Vintage Ads and LOLs

I thought I'd post some vintage ads for your (Semi) Wordless Wednesday.

They made me LOL.

No, seriously.

I mean, come on. That crap is hilarious.

Just stuck-in-the-shameless-sexist-golden-days-of-advertising-freaking hilarious.

Although, I must admit, that second ad did transport me to a 50 Shades of Grey kind of moment. And when my brain goes to 50 Shades of Grey, it also immediately and inexplicably goes to Ian Somerhalder.

If you've read 50 Shades, and if you love Ian Somerhalder and soooo want him to be Christian Grey like I do, certainly you understand what I'm saying. Right, Betty?

OK, leave it to me to turn a post about vintage ads into one about 50 Shades of Grey. What can I say? It's a gift. Unlike my gift of being able to create a (Semi) Wordless Wednesday post with relatively few words.

Clearly I need some help in that area.
