    Sea-Monkeys! My mommy wouldn’t let me order them. :-( LOL! (She also had a shit fit when I tried to make an “ant farm” in a bottle.)

    Even back then there was something goofy about those ads, Ed. And something sweet. Compared to today, with everything a marketing BLITZKRIEG, including product placement in movies, I’ll take the “good ‘ol days.”

    Though perhaps that’s just nostalgia.

    I am in the middle of some borrowed back-issue Spider-Woman comics and the fitness ads are incredible through the 2015 lens!
