It's a DIRTY WORD which cannot be published in a family magazine!

Having flipped through some Life magazines from the late 30s and early 40s, I have to say I was really shocked how many ads were devoted to laxatives and dietary "bulk". Must have been at least 40%. This is one of the more creative ones I've seen. Srsly, what were people back then eating??

My husband's Georgia grandmother prescribed laxatives for everything. Headache? Fever? Stomachache? Take a laxative!

I think it must be a side-effect from the focus on "dainty" food, especially for women. If you're subsisting on creamed salmon croquettes and a half a canned peach, you're probably not getting any roughage at all.

That's just scary.

I love the way they censored the word "constipation".
corridor7fcorridor7f on June 17th, 2010 07:08 pm (UTC)
The various stages of constipation...?

Creepers. :/

Anyone else automatically think of Hexidecimal from Reboot?

I'm reminded of that episode of the Twilight Zone where the dying rich man made his family wear masks...

YES! My first thought, too! :-D

Around 1969, I saw Homer and Jethro in concert. There was a heckler in the audience, and they put him down decisively. One of the things they said to him (I couldn't actually hear him from where I sat) was "Aw, why don't you eat bran flakes and be one of the Reg'lar Fellas?"
Airy, Airy Quite Contraryair_and_angels on June 17th, 2010 08:47 pm (UTC)
That is *excellent*.
I also liked Billy Connolly's 'Don't you tell me how to do my job! I don't come round to your work and tell you how to sweep up!'

well that was scary.........

remind me to nix the idea of ever buying All-Bran from Kelloggs again....

She looks like V for Vendetta in the fourth square.

Nice censoring, indeed. Talking about her butt troubles gives her constipalpitations.

Thanks for freaking me out.

I saw this one and thought "Pffft. The Bosco lady can do all those faces WITHOUT masks."

They had to censor "constipation?" That third mask is especially scary.
Tara: Clueless - Cher/Dionnecraving_vintage on June 18th, 2010 03:03 am (UTC)
OMG, this reminds me of one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes, The Masks.
