March MEAT Madness & (No) Movie Mayhem (Day 21!)

And now for something completely different–a look back at the world of vintage advertising! Whether it’s movies, or meat, retro ads had some…issues. I love meat as much as the next person (maybe more!) but looking at these ads…bring on the broccoli!

While you’re salivating over the meat, take a look at all the other stuff over at Flashbak!

This is also part of my “Blogs That Inspire” series.

Look at those photos.

LOOOOK at them! #Goddammit1970s is ALL over this blog. This must be what people ate when they had the “munchies,” because I cannot see anyone eating this slop sober. Look at that glazed “ham!” It’s glazed with gelatin(e) and probably has lines drawn on with Magic Marker.

I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to “do” Six Degrees of Stoogeration, and oddly enough, the most influential of blogs (see also: Mid Century Menu and Retro Recipe Attempts) are all FOOD BASED! Sure, there are movies, music, etc., mixed in, but there’s something about food (especially 1970s food, because #goddammit1970s!) that makes for a truly entertaining read! So, perhaps there’ll be a recipe for Moe Howard’s lasagna and cioppino (sp.)? Or Larry Fine’s…lox and bagels (he cooked a lot as well, but I don’t have any examples of what he made.)

So, one week from now, (maybe) you’ll see the New! Improved! Six Degrees of Stoogeration! (More likely, you won’t, because I’m lazy like that.)
