Fun With Words

Advertising!

I seriously doubt advertisers would be able to get away with this kind of advertising today. But they still target and use humor to get to their target audience.

Really?

my son used to “shave” his legs…he learned from watching me!

Where’s the projector?

And then there’s this…

Cocaine Tablets (1900): All stage actors, singers, teachers and preachers had to have them for a maximum performance.

Great to ‘smooth’ the voice.

Cocaine drops for toothache: Very popular for children in 1885.

Not only did they relieve the pain, they made the children very happy!

Coca cola (coke) was originally marketed as a temperance drink and intended as a patent medicine. It was invented in 1885 by John Pemberton, a pharmacist from Atlanta, Georgia, who concocted the original formula in his backyard. He had been wounded during the Civil War and was addicted to morphine. He wanted to invent something that would counter morphine. Pemberton’s recipe contained cocaine—in the form of an extract of the coca leaf, which inspired the “Coca” part of the beverage’s name. The “Cola” in the name comes from the kola nut, which contains caffeine, another stimulant.

I don’t have any images for these “facts”, but…

Mariani wine (1875) was the most famous Coca wine of it’s time.

Pope Leo XIII used to carry one bottle with him all the time.

He awarded Angelo Mariani (the producer) with aVatican gold medal.

Maltine: Produced by the Maltine Manufacturing Company of NewYork.

 It was suggested that you should take a full glass with or after every meal.

Children should only take half a glass.

Opium for Asthma: At 40% alcohol plus 3 grams of opium per tablet,

 it didn’t cure you, but you didn’t care…


Opium for new-borns: I’m sure this would make them sleep well (not only the Opium, but also 46% alcohol)!

It’s no wonder they were called, ‘The Good Old Days’!!

From cradle to grave… Everyone Was Stoned!!!

“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”

~ Mary Oliver
