The first newspaper ad ran circa 1622, but advertising itself is a good three thousand years older, with the first known example being a Theban papyrus touting "the store of Hapu, the weaver, where are woven the most beautiful fabrics to the pleasure of each one". From David Ogilvy to the guy who hands out flyers on a street corner, we are all the children of Hapu.
No words vs. pictures this week, unless you want to count the last panel. You already know where I stand. Even if the milkmaid wasn't a witch, the thought of the butter churner's furious yanking leaves me nauseous and afraid.
P.S. Special thanks to Lori for posting this while Jamie and I are away (oh yes... she's real).
