You just walked on the F*UCKING moon? Here's some Stouffer's.

(click ad) Washed down with yummy Tang. Jesus, that headline reads like a punishment statement. Ad is from the August 8th, 1969 Life, two weeks after the Apollo 11 astronauts returned to Earth. Copy reads, in part: "So 14 Stouffer's main dishes, side dishes and meat pies are featured on the menu throughout the critical postlunar quarantine period." Government contract, I guess. Or, did Nixon have a thing for Stouffer's? As mentioned in yesterday's post featuring the classic VW lunar module ad, today marks the 40th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11.
