Burma Shave signs

From 1955:

Dinah doesn't
Treat him right
But if he'd

rom 1929:

Every shaver
Now can snore
Six more minutes
Than before
By using

  Memorial Day Burma-Shave ad:

Let's make Hitler
And Hirohito
Look as sick as
Old Benito
Buy defense bonds

From 1930:

Does your husband


Grunt and grumble

Rant and rave

Shoot the brute some


From 1963:

When the stork

Delivers a boy

Our whole

Darn factory

Jumps for joyToday's jingle is from 1951!

My cheek

Says she

Feels smooth as satin

Ha! Ha! Says he

That's mine you're pattin'


From 1930:
Cheer up face
The war is past
The "h" is out
Of shave
At last
From 1959:
Drinking drivers--
Nothing worse
They put
The quart
Before the hearse
 From 1947:
Don't lose
Your head
To gain a minute
You need your head
Your brains are in it
From 1949:

He saw
The train
And tried to duck it
Kicked first the gas
And then the bucket
BURMA-SHAVE!From 1935:
His face was smooth
And cool as ice
And oh Louise!
He smelled
So nice
From 1940:
With glamour girls
You'll never click
Like a
BURMA-SHAVE!From 1928:
Takes the "H" out of shave
Makes it save
Saves complexion
Saves time & money
No brush no lather
BURMA-SHAVE!From 1929:
Half a pound
Half a dollar
Spread on thin
Above the collar
BURMA-SHAVE!From 1930:
Early to bed
Early to rise
Was meant for those
Old fashioned guys
Who didn't use
 From 1931:
Take a tip
For your trip
No wet brush
To soak
Your grip
BURMA-SHAVE!From 1932:

Political pull
May be
Of use
For razor pull
There's no excuse
BURMA-SHAVE!From 1933:
And roses
Like Moses
Just don't go together
BURMA-SHAVE!From 1934:
He had the ring
He had the flat
But she felt his chin
And that
Was that

If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00,
nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.

When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon.
Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.

I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying DAMN in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems every new movie has either HELL or DAMN in it.
I read the other day where some scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas.
Did you see where some baseball player
just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President.

I never thought I'd see the day all our
kitchen appliances would be electric. They're even making electric
typewriters now.

It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.

It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

I'm afraid the Volkswagen car is going to
open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.

Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the
government takes half our income in taxes.  I sometimes wonder
if we are electing the best people to government.

The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal,
but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

There is no sense going on short trips anymore for a weekend.
It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

No one can afford to be sick anymore.
At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it's too rich for my blood.

If they think I'll pay 30 cents for a haircut, Forget it.
