Our new mission. To have fun with old ads, and look at America in years past.

The 40s had to be a truly scary time for a woman. How can I make fun of an ad that reads like this? "Romance is all bound up with feminine daintiness. Even the most loving husband may find it difficult to forget - or forgive- a wife's carelessness, or ignorance, about intimate personal cleanliness. That's why so many women use 'Lysol' regularly." No wonder our grandparents were sometimes so screwed up!
And yes. Lysol used to be used.. "down there".
