Blast from the Past: A Great Gift Idea from 1920

Exactly 100 years ago. Think about it. Look at this ad. Now: compose one of the 2.5 million tweets that would be sent today, telling this company that they aren't 'woke' and will be 'cancelled'. Add .gifs, probably involving Baby Yoda and a mop. Or Jean-Luc Picard doing a facepalm.

Times change. Idiocy? Not so much.
