The Harder a Wife Works, the Cuter She Looks! (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


"The Harder a Wife Works, the Cuter She Looks!" is the new, paperback edition of "What the Doctor Smokes". It celebrates a time of innocence, when advertisers could tell us any old garbage and we'd believe it.From the minor untruth - typewriters that make the working day so much fun (really?) - to the amazing claim - cigarettes that are recommended by doctors and electric corsets (ouch!) that promise the perfect figure - and featuring some that can't ever have seemed a good idea - such as a chin reducing head cage - this book contains over 80 of the most outrageous adverts ever to have been thought up by ad execs.Hilarious and shocking, "The Harder a Wife Works, the Cuter She Looks!" reminds us not to believe everything we're sold!
