I don't think that's such a good idea...

I love trawling through the capsules over at Retronaut just to kill a bit of time every now and then, and I just had to share this fucking gem of a vintage advert in this Vintage Christmas Ads for Women collection.  (God the amount of vacuum cleaner ads in there sucks so much)...


I just don't think that buying your lady love, who apparently cooks all your meals (and has access to household chemicals), a set of scales is a very good idea.

I mean, what kind of message are you trying to send with this gift? "You're fat, but before you pop some black beauties and test that new Hoover I bought you, why don't you just straight up murder my ass?"

Yeah, that sounds about right.
