Yeah, This Ad Was For Your Little Girl!



Okay, the idea that this ad is intended to be for a toy for your kids is insulting to your intelligence. But not half as insulting as the idea that this photo is actually of the inflatable doll you will receive and not a picture of a living woman.

Now, let's see, do I send in the coupon to "Finish High School at Home" ? Or do I order this inflatable girlfriend?

    Noooo question about it. I'll take the brunette delux model. Does that come with the over-the-calf leather boots? -- Mykal

  3. Where on Earth did you find this!? Not in a comic book, surely!? This is almost surreal, no, it is surreal!

  4. KB: I found it in an early 70's Charlton issue of The Phantom!

  6. Mykal: Sorry, we're all out of the over-the-calf boots. Can we interest you in white knee socks and Mary Jane's?

  7. I suppose, if that's all you have in stock, I'll have to make do. ;-)

  8. Many of the romance books have this ad and it has always mystified me. It makes me question the intended audience for the romance comics!

  9. Did the ad have any kind of restriction, e.g., "Must be 18 or older to order"? Or could a child legally order one?

  10. There was probably a disclaimer in the fine print, saying that the photo was of a live model, not the doll. Like those ads for the toy soldiers had fine print saying "imaginary war scene shown."
