Follies of the Mad Men #46

[From Life magazine for March 5 1956.]

"Dig this crazy mixed-up ice cream!" "Man, it's real cool!"

Yeah, because beatniks like Maynard G. Krebs eat a lot of ice cream!

Seems to me that it's really 4 flavors. Can you lump two flavors together and push it off as one flavor?

Also, I'm not too sure about the use of pink bunnies to market something that is supposed to be cool (yes, I realize the cool to ice cream connection, but still). What's the connection of bunnies to ice cream anyway?

Thanks for clearing that up for me Matt. I wasn't aware of the protocol for manufacturers of artificial flavoring. 😊

Big Gary, is that why I always end up with a hair in my ice cream?

If it ain't Häagen-Dazs® it ain't ice-cream.

Bunnies are involved in the manufacture of many items, including easter eggs, marshmallow peeps, and most things pastel. They also work on things like blankets and bibs for children. I heard from a guy who heard from this other guy that they might be tied to the illuminati.

Sealtest! I haven't thought about Sealtest in years; I remember they used to have a Checkerboard flavor, Chocolate & Vanilla in Squares inside of the carton, that my Great-Grandmother would serve.

Damn, but I'm getting old!

Madd Max, are you sure it wasn't a hare in your ice cream?

Downcrisis - yeah good did I miss that pun?

Am I the only one here who watches South Park? Didn't anyone else see the easter bunny episode? If you did, then you have no doubt that bunnies are tied to everything we do. The bunnies on that package are a code to the other illumibunnies.
