Deslide doesn't work with funnyordie.com yet so don't try. Best thing to cancel the slideshow is to use NoScript and block funnyordie.com, and they all appear on the page

But it's missing this one --

That first ad.... obviously they don't have people at work that leave their NRA magazines in the john.... that ad looks like it would be right in place.

So... are these all fake... because the Cola one I definitely know is made up.

I know the Cocaine drops is true though, so, I am guessing this is just a bunch of stuff they found on the internet without much actually research into their reality.

I thought the tape worm ad was a Photoshop from a few years back?

Why is it ok for my wife to give me a weed-eater, but it's wrong for me to give her a vacuum? Double-standard?

could be. but they definitely sold tapeworms as a diet aid 100 years ago.

Nope, that's how ads really used to be. If you ever see a magazine from before the sixties, like at a yard sale or something, buy it and prepare to be amazed at the misogyny, racism, and just plain insanity. Especially from the cigarette ads.

Somewhat realistic, perhaps.  But still fake.

We may not see those particular quack ads anymore, but they've just changed for the modern day:

1) HeadOn- apply directly to the forehead (sued for it, IIRC)
2)  Acai / miracle berry crap
3) "Lose weight without dieting!" (might as well be tapeworm segments..)

Tapeworms are actually effective at weight loss. That's not quackery, just gross.

Ok so that one was fake, I didn't say it wasn't. I was saying they aren't all fake because ads used to be nuts. Find an actual magazine from more than fifty years ago and see for yourself. As for the ones shown, I dare say most are real other than the soda one and probably the gun one, the prices seem a bit high for the time.

Well, they are, but they're quackery in the same sense as radon - effective, but the side effects mean even a cursory exam says they're unsafe for human consumption..

On the upside, you'll either only taste sweet things or you'll lose weight, depending on the berry..

Maggot therapy is still considered the best for wound care in certain situations.  My Doc is the only one in the state to use sterile maggots for necrotic wounds!  She also takes patients off of opiates and other nasty drugs and puts patients on the medical cannabis program for ALS, MS, Crohn's, HIV, Hep C Glaucoma and Cancer - she does what is best for the patient - which is to reduce drug interactions and doesn't care if "Maggot Therapy" sounds "medieval".

Just to be clear... I just pointed out one (someone pointed out another) fake ad... as I stated, I knew the cocaine pills was a real thing... as well as the "Doctors recommending cigs" is a commonly known thing from before the 60s.

But, as I said, just seems like someone "looked" for some of these, but, like many things, didn't do much diligence on whether they were "real".

Rogue Surf: Maggot therapy is still considered the best for wound care in certain situations.


Yep.  The correct varieties of maggots will only eat dead flesh, helping to keep the wound clean. Leeches are still good when reattaching severed fingers and toes.  Maybe even larger limbs.  The problem is that while we can reattach arteries, veins need to heal more naturally, leading to a build up of blood that leeches remove safer than anything else.

Agreed. Unfortunately that is not uncommon. Depressing though. I'm sure had they tried they could have found legit ads that make these sane by comparison. "journalism" isn't what it used to be.

Nothing other than half the country hates guns now.   As I said, you wouldn't find gun ads in most national publications, but, that would be a pretty tame ad in any NRA magazine.
