  1. Evidently, this recipe guide was published at a time when ‘delicious-looking’ was not a virtue which the advertising community desired to achieve.

  2. Excellent advice. Anytime you buy a book at garage sale, thrift store, or if it is a found book, leaf through it for surprises. Don’t be too rough if it is a vintage find.

  5. CHUNKY SOUP CURSE?! There is supposedly a Chunky Soup curse that affects NFL players who appear in ads, holding Chunky Soup cans. Here is some more info, in case you were considering holding a can of Chunky Soup and getting paid to do so. Keep in mind there are a variety of theories out there.
    The Chunky Soup Curse is a mythical hex that seems to follow NFL players who appear in ads for Campbell’s Chunky Soup. The Curse was independently discovered and originally popularized by Dan Lewis in September of 2002. Offensive players who appeared in Chunky Soup ads tend to fall prey to serious injuries, as often do their backups. A potential reason for the affliction is that the original ads featured actresses purporting to be the players’ mothers. This is no longer the case — at least as far as Donovan McNabb is concerned. His actual mother now appears in his ads (as does his father).
