I liked the "don't worry honey, you didn't burn the beer !" LOL !!! Boy, have times seriously changed for the better.

As they say,"we've come a long way, baby". I remember the ads for Eve cigarettes. Of course, as you all know, smoking will help us keep our girlish figures. Although, it didn't seem to help Santa. LOL !!

Mmmm.... bacon in pancakes ;-)

I do remember the Apple ad, but then again, I'm a geek.

Did anyone notice the start of the VW ad? "Women are soft and gentle, but they hit things"... sheesh.

I certainly don't remember most of those!

And Layne Bryant? Didn't know they'd been around that long.... 'Chubbie' size clothes - up to size 16 1/2 ?!

Some of those are just bizarre, even for their time. Give baby a razor?!? Kind of makes you appreciate helicopter parents a little.

The Camel ad made me think of my childhood doctor. He was such a smoker!

Spam and lima beans? No thanks! LOL
