Back To School….

It’s that time of year already…..

Endless supply lists, the “I must have that shirt or I’ll die” moments, and lest we forget the dreaded alarm clock that is now buried under a mountain of summer dust.

Here are some fun retro back to school ads that I just couldn’t resist sharing!

How about a healthy pack of smokes to start your school year off right?  YIKES!  Nothing says RAH RAH RAH, like the football captain and his cheerleading gal coughing up a lung at half time.

I’m sorry….If Jimmy loves congealed meat more than Mary, then Jimmy is going to grow up to be one of those “scholarly” dudes that wears a bright yellow vest and picks up trash on the side of the road with a stick. Honestly Mary, you can do so much better!

I can only image that these kids got beat up for showing up on the first day of school wearing matching mom jeans.    “Hello world, here’s a song that we’re singin’. Come On, Get Happy!”

I ALWAYS wear my Peter Pan cap when making PB&J sandwiches, don’t you?  In all seriousness, if the kids came down to find me wearing this getup while making their lunches, they would have me committed….

Chubbies??!! Really??  Shame on you Lane Bryant.  The idiot that created this confidence boosting tag line is the reason spanks were invented.   You are evil and must be destroyed.

Happy Back to School!  I hope it’s a great year!!!!

  1. These are just to cute. I imagine they are around 1958 or 1959. Unfortunately I remember “Chubbies” from Lane Bryant. It was embarrassing to buy them. I feel much better now wearing “plus sizes”. (sarcasm-ha). Really though I do love that post.
