13 Pounds Away From Love

Readers Chris W. and Stacy O. just sent me this brilliant vintage ad. Click to enlarge and read the saga of Kitty, an overeater, who is unable to compete with a lithe blond at the pool. Luckily, Kitty's undermining friend steps in to tell her about the "wonderful reducing plan" which is printed on every package of Ry-Krisp, and sounds a lot like The Don't-Kid-Yourself Diet:

"You're no mermaid. If I were you, I'd dive into the nearest grocery store."

Kitty takes the advice and gets the guy. I've actually always enjoyed eating those rough, bark-like treats. No wonder I am so lucky in love.
