“Doc” Peters Saves The Day.

I love these cheesy old ads from the 50’s.

This one’s from “Boys Life”  from 1955,  a magazine that appears to be targeted towards 10-15 year olds.

So let me get this straight.

A bobcat is minding it’s own business, trying to feed itself.

So Jimmie and “Doc” Peters decide to KILL IT.

Good Lord. a

Anyway, we can all breathe a sigh of relief, because now there’s one less varmint to “plunder the woods”.

And not only that, but Jimmie has “helped conservation of wildlife”.


But which wildlife, I wonder?

Because obviously it’s not the bobcat.

    You must know that there is a very strict hierarchy of conservation value. Bobcats aren’t as valuable as grouse so in fact the world is better for having killed it.
    If you are ever confused by this sort of thing again feel free to call me and I’ll be happy to tell you which wildlife should be killed in order to help conservation.
    Oh and by the way humans and particularly guys are always helping conservation whenever they go out into the woods and kill something. It makes their pricks bigger too.

    That’s almost as good as that ad I saw going around once on how to be the perfect wife back in the 50’s.

    Sorry, when it comes to picking between the herbivore and carnivore, I always side with the carnivore.

    I have a whole bunch of those old magazines I bought somewhere.

    It’s hilarious…half the ads are about giving kids a .22 rifle so they can shoot critters.

    You know what? You could start a blog like the Cheeseburger Network based on these ads alone.
