Blastwurst from the Pastwurst

I don't smoke and never have. I have, however, eaten more than my fair share of hot dogs in my life. So which is worse for your health? I don't know, but your clothes don't smell funny in a room full of hot dog eaters.

Segue time: this ad for Esskay Franks from the 50's, written by Stan Freberg and starring Jessie White. I didn't know people even considered quitting smoking back then, much less replacing their habit with hot dogs.

A lot of people considered not smoking in those day especially Stan Freberg who always refused to be sponsored by or do an ad for any cigarette company.
The only thing was there were some rumours that smoking caused illness but not enough was yet known.
