9, 10, 11 and 14 are over the top. the VW ad was funny. :lol:
But 18 is definitely in poor taste, and 19 was just weird and Lysol douche? :laugh:
I didn't have an issue with the rest though.

Sounds like whoever wrote that original headline had too much estrogen in the office water fountain. "Shockingly offensive," because Lysol was in fact a leading ingredient for douches at that time? "Shockingly offensive," because Old Gold's famous chorus-line of dancing cigarette packs dared to show bare legs?

I don't get it, why is the the Plymouth 1940 ad offensive?
Is it because the black man finds the car exciting?  :confused:

Same with the Schitz ad, why is it offensive?

The rest though were pretty offensive  :tounge:

There's no ticks like Polyticks-bloodsuckers all Davy Crockett 1786-1836

Yankees are like castor oil. Even a small dose is bad.

Shockingly offensive? I don't think so. Not a one of them.
I remember #18, it was a bit pedo-ish. The girl in the ad was preteen.
The rest were mostly funny.
