AUBREY BEARDSLEY

"I have one aim - the grotesque. If I am not grotesque I am nothing"
                                        Aubrey Beardsley
                                             (1872-1898)

 Aubrey Beardsley was an English illustrator and author. His black ink illustrations were influenced by Japanese woodcuts. His early death was due to tuberculosis.

I used to have an old book of his entire illustrations and have no idea what happened to it.

WEIRD OLD ADS

Nothing spectacular here, just a bunch of weird old ads.

 Does anybody remember Wate-On? I tried it when I was a pathetically skinny fifteen-year-old nerd. It was this horrible banana-flavored crap that had to be mixed in milk. I thought it would transform me into Burt Lancaster in a week. I consumed this garbage faithfully for over a month - and didn't gain an ounce.

 "A True B.O. Experience"
Jessie was dumped by several prospective fiancees because she had treacherous B.O.

Just the cure for prostatitis -
stick a vibrating machine gun up your ass.


 "So that's why dick has been so cool to me"
Folks, I couldn't make this stuff up.
Let's use an antiseptic-germicide douche...to warm dick up...

 Baby will stop sucking his thumb - 
but will mysteriously find hitchhking a painful experience twenty years later.
(think about that - it will eventually get funny)

 Yea, and a fly in a burrito may mean a lawsuit with Taco Bell.

Raccoons have always been one of America's favorite pets. And favorite food in the Ozarks....
An organ grinder monkey will enhance any household.

 Front zipper and "drop seat"??
The look on this guy's face is not exactly one of undiluted pleasure.

I initially thought that said the "Fagg Bros."
Anyway, it's a very unappealing photo. 

 The inflatable (blow up) bra
...and he'll wonder why you're carrying a pack of straws on your date. He'll also wonder why your 34Ds went flat as a pancake when he hugged you....

My comments are getting annoyingly mundane....but they still make me laugh



A-Bomb decontamination soap
Recommended by the Atomic Energy Commission
Here's a flash: if you're hit by an A-Bomb, the last thing you'll need is soap. 

 Next to the inflatable bra, this is the most essential item to bring on a date.

 Wash away years of age and fat with La-Mar Soap.
Hell, I've done that with Lava Soap.....

  A poor complexion is the least of her problems....


....and also the fact that she couldn't type....


A feminine hygiene problem forced daddy to leave the wife and kiddies.....


......actually, Daddy left the wife and kiddies for this 60-year-old librarian wearing heart-shaped glasses.

 Take Daddy to enjoy a fun weekend with you at a nude resort.
What the hell will Mommy be doing while you're away??


 Fun and profit making lamps out of dead animals.
