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!

  1. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.

    There’s no doubt that that you ought to publish more on this subject, it might not be a taboo subject
    but usually people do not talk about these issues.
    To the next! Many thanks!!

  4. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
