And Now For Something Surreal

Monarch, the world's largest family of nationally distributed finer foods would like you to know the following.

1.  Their pickles are made by lions and bunnies with guillotines.

2.  They are supervised by a young girl who forces the bunnies to pull giant jars of pickles and work on treadmills. She also takes amphetamines...look at her eyes...

3.  They add lots of sugar to their "Pic-L-Joys" to make them "double sweet". Double DEADLY, I say.

Please notice that two of the bunnies have given up.  Can you find the Stoner bunny and the bunny who has lost his mind?

They've even employed an elderly bunny.  Can you find him?

This is another ad that proves (once again) positive that 1940s advertising men took highly hallucinogenic drugs.  There is no other explanation.

We were wondering too if 'shrooms were behind this poster!!

What could that ad have possibly meant to the general public back then? Were they in on some kind of secret message thing that we're not privy to today? You're right...surreal is the only way to describe it. And, yeah, creepy comes to mind too.

I'm not sure which part of this was supposed to motivate you to buy pickles, even back in the 1940's! It's definitely interesting, and it took somebody a long time to dream all that up! I'm sure that they had some help with those dreams, too...
Oh my God these ads are hilarious

You have just exposed the ugly side of what really went on behind the scenes at the filming of Alice in Wonderland.

Isn't that the lion from the Wizard of Oz? And the Humpty Dumpty bunny sitting on the wall. The girl is a mixture of Alice and Dorothy. Could Toto and the Cheshire cat be far behind?

These admen were so stoned they couldn't even spell pickle properly.
