Isn't it shocking how they used to have adds like that, knowing what we know now? Whew...

And do more camels smoke doctors than any other health professional?

Groover here:

HA ha...just yesterday I got my mom Walter Cronkites selelected old time radio shows on CD. The openning segment of a 1948 Jack Benny Show started out with an ad for Lucky Strikes ciggys. The whole show was littered with smoke, smoke, smoke!

Very weird timing Jenster!

I told an coworker about these types of ads, and she said, "I have never heard them say it was ok to smoke!"

fantastic find, Jen!

Thanks, Jen. I assume this is in response to the comment I made on Free Feasible Prophecies about the Lard advertisement. I remember the doctors’ commercials on TV and the game shows like I’ve Got A Secret and To Tell The Truth where the emcee would light up and give the contestants a carton of cigarettes. We’ve come a long way, baby.

That's hysterical. I bet doctors even operated on patients while smoking.

And did I ever mention Mom gave me a carton of Marlboro's in my Christmas Stocking one year?? It's true. I was 19 (just so you don't think I was, like, 8 or something)..
she meant well...
I guess..
