Do you think everyone was in on the joke but these three girls?

"Yes! Your hair looks great! Actually, let's just make it a little bigger..."
"No, people will definitely know what you mean by 'use me.' "

Thanks to Jane M. for pointing me to LPCoverLover for this one

Step away from the lips...

"Sir...Sir, I'm sorry, you can't kiss your girlfriend here."
"I'm sorry - what?"
"Did you see the sign? I said step back! Don't make me use force!"
"But I just - is that a tazer? What are you doing - AHHHHHH!"

Ok, that conversation isn't real but the sign is.

Look out Jenny Craig!

I thought we'd finish up a week of vintage ads with this classic:

That's right folks, eat some lard and then let the tapeworms do the rest!

Be sure to read through the whole thing - there some great lines in there (my personal favorite being "Easy to Swallow!")

Lard = love!

Since we're going down memory lane...

Ahhh, the simpler days. Life, love and lard. Really, what more do you need?

Blast from the past

If reading this blog is beginning to make you lose hope in this century's ability to communicate, never fear! As long a their have been ads, there have been bad ads...

Signage Sat-er Sunday.

It's time for Signage Sunday! Yep. Sunday. Good old Sunday.

Last time, I asked you all to come up with the meaning of this sign. It was a hard choice, but the winner is:
"Beware Falling Trapeze Artists!"

Today's picture is a treasure I found during my travels in Japan.

L...O...L. The thing is, I know what this sign is for and I STILL don't understand how they came up with this image to explain it.

Have fun ADmonishers.

What's this sign saying? Send in your best (aka, your wittiest) guess to admonishments@gmail.com or leave your comment on this entry!

It's about time!

Marketing Person: Boss! I've just come up with THE GREATEST idea ever.

Boss: Oh yeah? Ok, hit me!

MP: Ok, ready? This is pretty out there. But I think I've hit the jackpot!

Boss: I'm ready.

MP: Are you sure? It's prettyyyy cah-razy.

Boss: Yes, I'm sure! What is it!

MP: Ok...it's...oh man, this is wild. It's SHAVING CREAM. But that's not the wild part. It's shaving cream for WOMEN.

Boss: Uh, I'm pretty sure they've been making that since like...1940.

MP: What? Really? Are you sure?

Boss: Yes. But that's ok. It's a good idea. We need to expand our line anyway.

MP: Uh oh. It's too late. I already went ahead and did it.....

FINALLY! Thanks Pure Silk. Where would women be without you?

If you say so...

In response to my last post, I received this photo taken at a State Park in Kansasville, WI.

Hey, can't argue with the government. And who knows, maybe you'll run into Michael Phelps.

Ooo, too soon?
