Monkeys By Mail

monkeyad

Today we step back into reality for a moment. We’re not by any means the first to post about this real comic book ad from the 60’s, but the part that always got me was the “live delivery guaranteed” line. Did they have a problem with this early on and then amend the ad once they got things lined out? Just how many people were horrified (and birthdays ruined) by having a dead monkey delivered to their door? Let’s all be glad the days of mail-order monkeys are past.

    Its the gift that keeps on giving (you Monkey s*** and AIDS). The fact that this ad exists doesn’t frighten me as much as the thought of the parents who said yes to it.
