Why I still don't trust "health" advertisers...


For a better start in life, Start COLA earlier!

How soon is too soon?
Not soon enough. Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining acceptance and "fitting in" during those awkward pre-teen and teen years.

So, do yourself a favor. Do your child a favor. Start them on a strict regimen of sodas and other sugary carbonated beverages right now, for a lifetime of guaranteed happiness.

My friend Aaron sent this to me.
Makes you wonder just how many new "good things" right now are just not so good after all eh? Yes. Laboratory tests. On children. With cola. Measure acceptance.
Makes me think of all the "healthy choice" ads on TV right now where a lady in a labcoat sells certain products...
*sigh*
As a scientist I have to say...just cuz you have a labcoat, I'm not gonna believe you. I have one too.
Nyeah nyeah.

FWIW, the ad's either a parody or a hoax, depending on the intention of the people who made it.

Pete, if so, who did make it?
I've seen real ads from this time period in the same vein as this...do tell who made it' I'd love to find out if it is real or not..
