Asinine Ads from the 70's  
These ads were taken from Family Circle magazines from the early 1970's. Quite a bit has changed over the past 30 years.

Thanks to the real AIDS we must all turn down the unprotected turnover from the gay man. By the mid 1980's when the incurable "wasting away" disease with the sound alike name AIDS came out ads for the weight loss supressant Ayds quickly disappeared.

More women losing weight from Ayds.

Rely "absorbed the worry" of menstruation by killing hundreds of women with "Toxic Shock Syndrome" in the mid to late 1970's. In 1980 the product was taken off the market. You can read more about it at the Museum of Menstruation.

I'm still pissed I never owned one of these as a kid! Everyone had these cool containers while I was stuck brown bagging mine. That's a damn scary Clown. I betcha he collects the urine of young children and sticks it in his flip n sip to drink.

What kid wouldn't want to get a fresh taste of Mrs. Brady's Tang.

This is from a Newport Cigarette ad. I thought it was funny for their 70's jackets and the fact that they're packing up a Pinto. Hopefully they won't be burned alive on their way to the snow.

Wow...filming in low light with no sound for 7 minutes! Too cool! If anything this tells you how far we've come with the advent of cheap portable video cameras.

Buddy Ebsen (Jed from the Beverly Hillbillies/Barnaby Jones) likes to spread Parkay margarine on his bread. Later on these two fine old ladies continued spreading for Buddy.

I think these coffee makers have a 70's suburban originality and style the newer drip coffee makers seriously lack.

To this day I think Miracle Whip is one of the nastiest tasting products ever! Even the thought of eating this Miracle Whip "inside & outside" Chicken salad pie makes me want to puke my guts out.

No need for a set of Encyclopedias. Thank God little Sally learned how to create Macrame, Tie-Dye, and Pom Pom rugs. Think of where she would have ended up without these useful skills in todays job market.

With names like Elegant Shag, Freedom, and Natural Afro these wigs are a steal and a symbol of 70's liberation for a mere $3.72 each!

I couldn't resist throwing in this ad for the "anything but dull" Hornet Sport about. Some things never change my parents STILL drive a station wagon (whoo hoo their's is a 96 Roadmaster) with fake wood grain on the side and yea it's so dull.

If you were a boy growing up in the 70's or 80's it's almost guaranteed you had at least one Tonka truck. Not suitable for children under the age of five. Hank the Pedophile not included.

See the original sized uploaded scans here.

My sisters and I had the biggest Tonka trucks on the block! All the boys wanted to play with us!!

And boy, am I glad I'm not dead! Since I used Rely tampons when I was a teenager! (They really did work great! Except for that whole 'sudden death' thing!!)

Holy Shit a "Rely" survivor. Come to think of it the girl next door had a Tonka too. She could kick my ass anytime anywhere.

We had originally made plans at 8 to be married when we grew up, but I guess time changes everything. Plus the fact she moved to Ohio.

I betcha you rode in a Pinto or a Hornet at least once too. I so want one of those cars. Just the mention of the name makes me want to laugh.

you need a vehicle for your sucess....AMC Concord!!!
i mean who wouldnt want some of Mrs.Bradys tang??????

pintos suck, the clown is gonna be my next halloween costume (and no i never had that goddamned sippy flip fucking lid or even a lunch box for that matter, i had brown bags) Tonkas are the childhood equalizers that kept us from getting our asses kicked by bullies by having a 10 pound bulldozer to wield for offense and defense!

ahhhh just bring back lawn darts and good old fashioned poisonous Red Dye #666 and ill be a happy man!

Re: you need a vehicle for your sucess....AMC Concord!!!
I had one of those flippy things. I always wondered why it had a circular hole in the spout, now I realise I was missing out by not sticking a straw through mine. I had that little coffee pot in the lower right, too, in a child size version, but no one in my house drank much coffee, so I wasn't sure what it was for, and just used it in the sandbox.

Re: you need a vehicle for your sucess....AMC Concord!!!
Wow...you were lucky to have one of the flip n sip's. I just love old coffee pots even though I don't really like coffee.

Hey Rev...yea Tonkas did rock for getting into fights/battles! Those babies hurt when you got hit by one.

girlonawire on January 6th, 2004 11:25 am (UTC)
I agree!! Miracle Whip is some nasty shit!

Hahahahha....Mrs. Brady's tang.....spreading for Buddy. You're so subtle.

I love it!
eyeno on January 6th, 2004 11:47 pm (UTC)
Why Thank You...although Mrs. Brady's Tang is a no brainer.

are all of these from the 70's and 80's?
eyeno on May 14th, 2004 02:07 pm (UTC)
Yup....mid to late 1970's. They probably carried over into the early 80's and maybe they kept using variations on them into the 1990's. I scanned them from a Family Circle magazine from the mid to late 70's.

Damn I sound repetitive, but hopefully this makes some sense.
frikinout on May 14th, 2004 02:50 pm (UTC)
could you possibly send me some? More 80's-ish, I'm doing a project for school and I need some. That would be super!
eyeno on May 14th, 2004 04:25 pm (UTC)

You might be able to get aways with saying the ads came from the very early 80's. I don't have a lot of the scans to send to you, but you can check out these links. Maybe they'll help. To save a picture you just right click & click on save as to your hard drive.

Good luck!

mobile al tv stations
Woow! Two days ago i had found the Mobile Phone TV... o-oo I'm so glad that I decided to advise you too l:)

I consider myself a bit of a road warrior. I am on and off jets and through airports at least twice,
usually 4 times a week. I can catch up on news, watch a Discovery program, check up on the stock market or just find something interesting.
The live guide works like cable at home and the connection speed is very good. All in ALL - I RATE A 5 Star program!

here is this miracle :) http://bit.ly/awesome_mobileTV
sincerely, your Alexis....
