  2. Long, LONG ago?? O_o. Hey!! I was familiar with the “Prell”, “Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific” and the Cover Girl mascara ad. They’re from my teenage years! I ain’t THAT old (although old enough ’tis true). 😆

    …a kinder, gentler time. Before Feminism. “When Men were Men, Women were Women, and Small Furry Creatures from Alpha Centauri were real Small Furry Creatures from Alpha Centauri!”

    (See if any of you know where that quote came from…)
    (Good luck)

      I kinda suspected this, but I freely admit cheating 😉 Douglas Adams, via “The Hitchhiker’s Guide.”

      Just the other day, I got the words “Zaphod Beeblebrox” stuck in my head and had to look them up. I did read the book, but it was during what a friend of mine calls “The Fuzzy Years,” so. . .

  6. The nylon ads didn’t mention the uncomfortable garter belts that dug into your legs when you sat down. I love old ads. I can laugh now. 🙂 — Suzanne
