Some amazing vintage ads collected together by the Huffington Post, reminding us of the kind of world that some conservative politicians would like us to return to…

Guns – safe enough to play with:

Babies love sugar!

Better get that shopping right!

Even baby wants you to smoke…

Weight problems? Why not try… tape worms?

Beer – good for mother and child.

Ah, much smokier times…

Feel like you’re on the plantation:

“Show her it’s a man’s world”… with your tie… (?)

Like a spirited woman…

Well, my wife DOES like cooking…

Like a turtle needs a seatbelt…
