1964 Volkwagen Ad

One more reason to buy a Volkwagen: it's cheap to fix when your wife wrecks it! The ad copy actually says, "Women are soft and gentle, but they hit things." Is that why insurance companies charge more to cover male drivers? Eventually, ads like this went away as more women bought cars without their husbands along to make the buying decisions. The ad is part of a collection at Buzzfeed called 10 Retro Ads That Made Women Look Like Complete Idiots. Link

PlaysWithWolves, I don't get headaches blogging. When I get stressed, I remind myself of the alternatives (punching a clock, being a housewife in the '60s) and I feel much better. Then again, just getting older makes me worry less about everything. The only time I get a headache these days is when I have a cold or flu.
