Laxative Sam says

Here’s an ad from the February 20 1934 edition of the Toronto Daily Star that caught my attention:

I know that this is made up for the ad, but I am kind of hoping that there was a real person named Laxative Sam. Though I wouldn’t want to know how he got his name.

This ad introduced the concept of “laxative staleness”, and the idea of a “thorough, muscular movement of the bowels”. Yikes.
