Follies of the Mad Men #49

[From Playboy magazine for October 1965.]

If you wear one of our sweaters, you'll look like a ridiculous chimp.

"Me Retailer, you Jerk!"

ADDENDUM: Reader Vern notes that the text ridicules the chimp as wearing an older, out-of-style sweater, while the man sports the manufacturer's sleek new model. That's a good point. Nonetheless, how convincing is the comparison, when the human's rival is a monkey?

Vern--excellent point: I'll make an addendum to the post.

Paul, isn't using "D'oh!" plagiarism on some level? 😖

Expat47--nope, just homage and postmodern detournment!

I've had it with the blatant anti-monkite prejudice around here. We monkeys are not the same as apes, and we demand to be treated as equals. No, actually, we don't want that. I'd rather swing around in a big zoo all day that work in an office. Complaint retracted.4
