Does anyone remember when there were cigarette commercials on tv? Or they had beer commercials but no one could be shown drinking it? Remember when a married couple had to sleep in twin beds in the movie? And did you know that at one time, the censors would not allow commercials on tv to show a toilet?

In looking at today's commercials, tv shows, and movies, I tend to long for that more simple (some say innocent) time when there were proprieties and I didn't have to listen to someone tell me they have genital herpes or watch women dressed in brightly colored clothes dance around trying to look like the shape of a feminine product.

Sometimes I wish we could bring back the past just a little.....

Remember the Dick Van Dyke Show? Rob and Laura slept in twin beds... no one ever explained how they managed to have a kid!

Yeah, I could live without the genital herpes announcements too, lol!

I'm thinking of the movie Pleasantville, where the modern kids get sent back into an old black and white show. Since intimacy was never shown on those types of shows, it didn't exist in that universe, and the girl wound up having to have "the talk" with the mother, except she was the one doing the teaching!

Although you gotta admit, there's a lot of funny commercials. Like that Bud Light Superbowl commercial:
Couple driving down a dark road, see hitchhiker.

Husband: Hey honey, maybe we should pick that guy up. He's got Bud Light.
Wife: But he's got an axe!
H: But he has Bud Light!
W: But he has an axe!
H: I'm sure there's a good reason for it...

Pick up hitchhicker, see another one.

H: Honey, this guy has Bud Light, too!
W: But he has a chainsaw! Rolling on the Floor Laughing

Sorry, I'm easily amused. LOL.
