“Saving Love Lives The World Over!” e-mail e-mail to a friend in need

August 28, 2008


Filed under: pop culture,Treats — posted by Breakup Girl @ 9:50 am

Before there was BG, there was supermuscleman Charles Atlas,* who helped the 97-pound weaklings of the world find love by bulking themselves up and punching bullies out. “Chumps” became “champs,” and then the ladies — well, “They obey your silent commands.”

Oh no wait,that part was the sea monkeys.

Of course, with your X-Ray Specs, you could see right through all this goofy advertising, but instead — much more fun — you could enjoy, via Boing Boing, this wee gallery of jaunty old comic book ads, which led me to all sorts of [more elaborate] others as well. See you at the ant farm!

  5. First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting
    my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

  8. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad
    for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  14. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    Nevertheless imagine if you added some great visuals or
    videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with images and videos, this website could certainly be one
    of the best in its niche. Fantastic blog!

  15. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
