Follies of the Madmen #286



Lots of goofy stuff here.

First commercial: who's the publisher for that special Mom propaganda book?

Second and third commercials: love that trippy 2001: A Space Odyssey sequence as we fly thru the aspirin particles.

Fourth commercial: once upon a time, hairy chests were okay.

Fifth commercial: this woman has ingested so much iron that her bare feet are comfortable on metal stirrups.

Sixth and seventh commercials: life in a circus-acrobat household.

Eighth commercial: multivitamins promote blue balls.

Ninth commercial: children are iron-vampires.

Tenth and eleventh commercials: psychedelic scrumpcheroo!

Twelfth commercial: hey, a rerun! Or is this a flashback from dropping too many Chocks?

Thirteenth and fourteenth commercials: Charley Chocks, pusherman.

Fifteenth commercial: Chocks and chopsticks!

Sixteenth commercial: And you thought the Archies were too fake!

Seventeenth commercial: interplanetary Chocks colonialism!
