The humor in this ad isn't in the main text, because there's not much there to laugh at. However, if you read very carefully at the end, there is the mention of use with "sanitary napkins." Is that to keep the wolves at bay when they smell blood? How many men even get close enough to a woman in that state to remark on her "not so fresh" smell? Maybe she should just use Listerine...fresh smell, no cavities!

Men hate stuffy noses, ladies, and that's more important than you contributing to the war effort, working in factories, being nurses and pilots, holding the country together, having war stories of their own. Gosh I hate these ads.
Gives your den or rumpus room that "lived in" look!
