EDIT: I guess they still make it. (shrug) I've never had it.

A contest idea... How about a salute to the can?

Can I also toss in PIE while I'm thinking about it? :D
Miss Tia's Journalmisstiajournal on February 6th, 2012 12:15 am (UTC)

bomb dot com: scotty: gravityglass_houses on February 6th, 2012 12:36 am (UTC)
Is this a question or an exclamation? YES, PIE!
spuzzlightyearspuzzlightyear on February 6th, 2012 12:36 am (UTC)
Judging on what I found just now, that's an AMAZING suggestion, PIE PIE PIEEEEEEE
Ejia Arath: ur flavr iz deelishusejia_arath03 on February 6th, 2012 01:40 am (UTC)
PIIIIIEEEEEE!
Man Writing Slash: deancreampiewrite_light on February 6th, 2012 03:30 am (UTC)
IS THAT SO WROOOOOONG? XD There are many wondrous pies in the vintage ad world. :D
Miss Tia's Journalmisstiajournal on February 6th, 2012 11:46 pm (UTC)
i was just asking.....i didn't realize there could possibly be so many pie ads!!! pie ads have been tossed into the hat! :)

I see by Dean's face in your icon that he is also thinking of PIE.

Dean + Pie = fantasy fulfilled.

They totally still make it. :D

The canned asparagus is an absolute HORROR.
Kim, Meezer Queen and Equestrienne: nectar of lifemeezergal on February 6th, 2012 07:09 pm (UTC)
Ugh, yes! Canned asparagus is... actually, I don't have words to describe how disgusting it is.

My Mom makes this really fantastic cornbread using Mexicorn and some other stuff, plus cornbread mix. It's excellent with barbecue or chili!

Does he bring his own chair, or does he hover?
realpestilencerealpestilence on February 5th, 2012 11:27 pm (UTC)
Perhaps he has one of those personal helicopters under there. :D
pony_rockspony_rocks on February 5th, 2012 10:41 pm (UTC)
If he comes around, I'll do it, I'll scream all day!

A giant green guy wearing leaves and a dickie.

Normally you'd have to do a certain amount of drugs to see this.
realpestilencerealpestilence on February 5th, 2012 11:25 pm (UTC)
He carries it off with a certain panache, though.
corridor7fcorridor7f on February 6th, 2012 01:28 pm (UTC)
..I was going to comment on his lack of a shirt.

I wonder if it rolls up all snappy like a window shade when he takes a mouthful of niblets and peas? :P
Virgers!  How are we doing with those explosives?tree_and_leaf on February 5th, 2012 11:39 pm (UTC)
Actually, the niblets aren't that bad if you're going to use them in soup or something like that, and they're definitely better than the supermarket own brand.

Tinned peas, though, are just a bit nasty...
tink_queen: Dennytink_queen on February 6th, 2012 12:37 am (UTC)
Oh, but when I invite the green giant for dinner, he's suddenly sooo busy.

I grew up with canned corn, and was occasionally delighted with the accidental purchase of the creamed variety. Not saying we had canned exclusively, of course.
pikkewyntjiepikkewyntjie on February 6th, 2012 01:04 am (UTC)
Ugh! Me, too! And that is pretty much all we ate when I was growing up. Can't stand canned food now and the only time I buy it now is for food drives.
bomb dot comglass_houses on February 6th, 2012 01:08 am (UTC)
Oh no, I still enjoy it :)
Miss Tia's Journalmisstiajournal on February 6th, 2012 11:47 pm (UTC)
you mentioning it for food drives reminds me of the south park when kenny goes into a machine with blowing cans of food to catch and his parents yell "get us some corn kenny"....sorry, i watch a lot of south park....
pikkewyntjiepikkewyntjie on February 7th, 2012 12:55 am (UTC)
No reason to be sorry about that. SP can be pretty damned funny sometimes.
luke_russellluke_russell on February 6th, 2012 01:42 am (UTC)
Unlike freesing, nothing really cans very well. Tomatos are an exception. I guess pineapples are OK.
Cindycindyanne1 on February 6th, 2012 12:50 am (UTC)
I normally don't wear an off-the-shoulder gown for canned corn, but she really makes it work.

Thank goodness for that huuuge napkin!

6. Her lingerie reeks of creamed spinach

That had me cracking up and gagging at the same time. I might have a too vivid imagination.
Miss Tia's Journalmisstiajournal on February 6th, 2012 11:48 pm (UTC)
LMAO!!!!
those are all great!
bomb dot com: sherlock: winkglass_houses on February 7th, 2012 04:01 pm (UTC)
niblets!
Anne Marieindigoviolet on February 6th, 2012 08:14 am (UTC)
That's terrifying
Ejia Arath: Foooreskin!ejia_arath03 on February 6th, 2012 09:50 am (UTC)
Well, at least they don't have full view of his, er, great big tender sweet peas.
corridor7fcorridor7f on February 6th, 2012 01:33 pm (UTC)
I'm sad we can't see he sculpted legs in the shorty toga. I'll say it again, I was in love with his legs as a kid. :P
temperance14temperance14 on February 6th, 2012 05:04 pm (UTC)
I was just glad he crossed those legs, at least at the ankles.

That green boy's got class, he does.
Kim, Meezer Queen and Equestrienne: nectar of lifemeezergal on February 6th, 2012 07:13 pm (UTC)
I guess I'm the only one who prefers canned corn to frozen, which I find too squishy. Just about all other veg I prefer fresh or frozen, however. The mere smell of canned peas makes me gag.
Geek Queen: billie piper1geek_queen on February 8th, 2012 03:00 am (UTC)
Cute ad. I've never seen the Green Giant dressed in his fancy duds before.
acksedacksed on February 8th, 2012 06:10 pm (UTC)
Part of me is wondering what techniques were used to create the illusion of size.
Part of me is wondering which one the Giant's going to eat first. "Grey hair? Probably be really gamy and tough. That one in front of me barely looks like a mouthful. That leaves... you."
