"Think of it. You'll have more time on your hands (...) to make a pantsuit. To live a little."
Shared in the Boing Boing Flickr Pool by vintage ad archivist MewDeep, and larger size here.
But then her hands will get old because they’re not soaking in Palmolive every day. You just can’t win.
You should see how many pantsuits I’ve made since we got a dishwasher.
Don’t bother doing laundry either, just toss them when they get dirty and buy Dixie brand clothing! Landfill not included.
The future holds bright promise in that regard.
uhm.. not to be a Debby Downer, but that’s not my take-away from this ad…
“What a drag it is getting old”
Sure she will. She’ll just get old making sandwiches, instead of washing dishes. That’s why you only lease them, so you can trade up to newer models as they come out.
Dixie Cups: a fine product of the Koch brothers.
And for context:
20 glasses a day? With her husband at work and the children at school (or too young to drink from glass)?
I don’t think it’s the liquid on the outside of the glasses making her prematurely old.
Having said that, if “living a little” means sewing a pantsuit, drinking a lot is probably the correct response.
What product is she using to help alleviate her Giant Head Syndrome?
Does anyone else feel the oldest woman in the photo seems to be the hottest?
Well, duh. She’s been stuck over a sink full of steaming water for thirty years.
Sure is too bad no one else in the house knows how to wash dishes.
Jeez, why not just make them dress in drag and worship a picture of Mao while holding them at gunpoint? You’re undermining the very foundation of civilization.
Any time saved in not washing those glasses is just spent getting up and refilling that tiny little 3 oz paper cup’s two sips-worth of beverage.
This reminds me of one of my favorite Mr. Show bits: Mustmayostardayonnaise.

From stoned to menopausal to resigned. With bubbles!
