I know you like to make us chortle at amusing old adverts, but I do wonder if this sort of thing was not tongue in cheek, and semi-parody of attitudes, even when first published.Interesting how things change-many TV adverts now seem use the concept of man=incompetent clown, hopefully with no more sinister intent.
Oh, I'm sure it was at least partly tongue-in-cheek.
