Once married, the rules for a woman were pretty straightforward as well. Quit your job and have babies. Husbands didn't care because they didn't like the idea of wives earning money. That was a man's job. And it wasn't simply a cliche; men really did believe a woman's place was in the kitchen or the bedroom.

    Men back then were total assholes (and some still are)! I can't stand people that think like that! Women weren't put on this earth for the sole purpose of being cooks, servants, and baby-makers.

This ad. I cannot even find the words. I think this one ad has perfectly encapsulated everything we find hilarious about 1950s advertising. These kids are just so wholesome and... well, swell. There they are with their soda-pop they're sharing, looking into each others eyes while eating weiners. And the slogan. Just plain funny. This ad wins.

I wish I could travel backand live in the 50's...
