Vintage Ads with Science / Technology Themes

Engineering Humor - RF CafeTake a break from the drudgery with some of these jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor that has been collected from friends & from websites across the Internet. This humor is light-hearted and sometimes slightly offensive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. I have taken care to censor "humor" with reproductive function innuendo and hateful tirades, so it is all workplace-safe. I have also tried to warn of any links that will result in audio clips so you can take appropriate precautions. Please send any potential candidates for this humor page to the e-mail link above.

Humor #1 | Humor #2 | Humor #3

It is amazing what passed as good advertising strategy back in the early days of the media. Some of the ads are zany, some are incredibly politically incorrect, and others are downright dangerous. These examples have been making the rounds on the Internet in the last few months, so I have collected the ones with a science / technology theme.
