Hey Fatty-Boombalatty: Don't be a Smelly-Boombalelly.

(click ad, via) Calling all Chubbies! The year was 1962. The magazine was Woman's Day. The ad was for Quest powder deodorant, "compounded specially to solve intimate odor problems...particularly suitable if you're inclined to be plump." Yes, I'm sure it was uniquely formulated for overweight girls, like the one pictured. What a dump truck. Devious copy almost certainly written by a Mad Man copywriter. The Quest brand doesn't appear to be around today.
