Ah, the 1950s...milkmen, cone bras, and advertising that made it seem okay to tell your wife that if she made one mistake, you'd leave her for an Aqua Net-scented secretary named Doreen. Seeing such blatantly sexist principles reflected in these commercials from the fifties makes you want to hop in a time machine just to see what it was really like back then...yet deep down you know that your wife would screw even that up by spilling coffee all over the control board. Am I right, fellas.
These guys clearly had it rough. And they probably missed a lot of great coffee commercials because their wives didn't crouch down while they vacuumed in front of the TV.
