Many of these old-timey ads have been circulating on the webWTF for years, but they're always worth revisiting. And I hadn't seen this Black Flag DDT ad before. Or the thalidomide ad either; that is one for the history books: For a barbiturate and hypnotic your kid can accidentally OD on with complete safety, try Distavalâ„¢ today!

More fun is to try and guess what totally uncontroversial products and parenting practice will make us look like barbarian idiots fifty years from now. My guess is oil.
