Cellophane®—For Fresher Dead Babies.

(click ad) Just an amazingly clueless DuPont buygone ad. FYI: My dad worked as a pipefitter at a DuPont plant for 37 years. He's got a pension and asbestosis (image via). previously in: disastrous vintage chemical company ads.

This is amazing. I'm guessing it's the best thing I shall see today. Thanks.

I don't know what's worse--the baby wrap or the yellow jumpers.

Perhaps the cellophane was a good idea. If they lived, they would grow up to wear ribbon belts and pink polo shirts.

Looks pretty useful to me. I cannot see the humour

This looks hilarious - and is - but we are currently creating a modern day version of this ad:

The wall street journal wrote an article this week about how the industry group for the metal soda and canned food industry is going to hire a pregnant woman to start making positive campaigns for BPA. BPA is the chemical used in hard plastics and canned food that has been show - even by the FDA - to be harmful to children and to inhibit chemotherapy efficacy. It is currently being outlawed on a state by state basis (including the city of Chicago, which I guess is a state now.) May their ads show up on your blog 5 decades from now!

A sure way to handle the population explosion.

That is hilarious, I'll never view cellophane in the same way again.
Btw Teenie, they are yellow overalls, not jumpers. What's wrong with overalls? Babies look so cute in them.
