Know what I got for Christmas?
It was a banner-farking-year at the Bender family.
I got a carton of cigarettes.
The old man grabbed me and said, "Smoke up, Johnny."
go home and cry to your daddy. Don't cry here, okay?

The Alka-Seltzer one wasn't a gift ad.

Sammy Davis, Jr.in Christmas advertising. Priceless.

fail on #1. i guess the writer takes being warm for granted. i remember my grandmother describing how she took turns sharing the throw rug at night with her brother. one night she would wrap herself in it and he'd get next night. he died as a 12 year old from infection when he fell off the ice wagon he worked on and farked his kneecap. the kids in town would hang out at the railway yard and look for anything of value. some dropped coal,potatoes, or grain left in a sack they found most. something like a dented can of food was a jackpot

I hope the colors in those ads faded... cuz that 'beer' looks an awful lot lot piss. Probably tastes like piss, too, now that I think about it.

That's doubly ironic, since Pabst brews Schlitz.

LIKE piss dammit, not lot lot. Merry Christmas, non-proofreading jackhole. *sigh*

I've been having fun paying attention to what is happening in commercials. For example, the Infinity commercial where grandpa is worried about missing a '40 year tradition'. They pull up to someone's house, and hang an ornament in the yard as the homeowner turns on their outdoor lights. WTF is that? If they knew the homeowners, they would have waited. Obviously the family tradition is stalking this one house at Christmas. And thanks to Infinity, they can still do it in horrible weather

Pabst contracts Miller to brew Pabst and Schlitz. The new/old formula Schlitz is actually pretty decent.

Read the copy in the first ad. Where it talks about the a young man cleaning his gun.

/Probably not a euphemism back then. Could be, though.

And thanks to EZ leasing terms, even people who have no business owning a luxury car can--kinda!

/You used to see car commercials this time of year where a man would be leading his lady out to the driveway where there would be a car with a big bow on the top. I've been looking and I haven't seen one this year. I suppose it would just be pointless to put a bow on a lease.

LUXURY! We used to have to get out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of of gravel, work twenty hour day at mill for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would thrash us to sleep with a broken bottle, if we were lucky!
