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!

  11. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your article seem to be running
    off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet
    browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers

  14. I am extremely impressed with your writing talents as neatly as with the
    layout to your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you
    customize it your self? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog
