Ahhhh... the good ol' days

Remember the day when your favourite cartoon characters weren't bound by stupid moral and ethical restrictions and could promote the great products they love to whomever they saw fit? Kids rode their bikes without helmets, drove in the car without seatbelts and dreamed of the day when they could light up and enjoy the sweet taste of Winston brand cigarettes... just like Fred Flintstone.

Well, cigarette marketing guidelines may have changed, but at least we can still be lazy and inconsiderate towards our spouses. Thanks Fred. Thanks Barney. You set the standard.
