Okay, I'll bite.

14, 13, 8, 5, 2, and 1 are disturbing or just bizarre...especially #'s 2 and 13, but the rest are just consistent with feelings at the time they were published.It is unfair to judge old ads by today's standards.

As for the foreign ads, well...there's no accounting for foreigners.

"The chubby section was where I did pretty much all of my shopping when I was a kid, it was considered an inoffensive way of alluding to fat kids."

I remember begging my mom to let me get the "Husky" clothes at Sears because I loved dogs and especially Huskies (I had recently read Call of the Wild)

She said she'd love to but they were way to big for me. LOL, I had no idea that "Husky" equaled fat.

For me it meant shopping in the "Husky Boy's" section...
