As in we no longer spank children for farting.

I still get spanked. Although Ovaltine never helped me as a child. Hmm, now I know why my mom pushed it.

OK, I'm not even going to question that first sentence. 8)

It's amazing how advertising has changed over the decades though. They are now starting to openly discuss various things again, which were not considered appropriate for quite a while.

LOL, I suppose that could go a dozen unintended wrong ways. My bad.

Came to this thread looking for more of y'all carrying on about how things were different years ago. Different era, different side of life, different experiences. But instead we get a full-page paper about childrens' bowels, colorful descriptions of "unstoppable flatus, which can disrupt both school & family time with loud noises and foul, cheese-like odors" (what the hell were these people eating?)
and then the classic description of - "Adults regularly pass painful 'spark-plugs'--"

"Ovaltine...effectively plugs your child up from the inside" with a "soft pudding-like substance" --

Was this written by pranksters or ad copy men?

Was that from before they invented Beano? Did they keep him after school or just put his desk outside under the window? Was he burdened with a painfully embarrassing nickname, like "Stinky"? The ad writer was sort of a skunk himself. A more tasteful title would have been "Children should be seen, and not heard". -WAIT WAIT...IS that out of an old National Lampoon, per chance? :?:

OK this has GOT to be a parody. Mentions benzene as an ingredient with food value.

That is a well-crafted fake. The creator made another that is less subtle:

Growing up, we got Ovaltine all the time. I don't recall any reason except maybe that we LIKED it--and it might have therefor helped keep us quiet......
