Get the Lead Out


This made my day. From a Sept. 16, 1939 "Saturday Evening Post." Yep, good old, reliable, neurotoxic lead. Of course, this was back in the day when children probably bathed in lead and gargled with mercury, and THEY LIKED IT. I love the tag line: "You're money ahead when you paint with White Lead." Nowadays, it's "You're pretty much dead when you paint with White Lead." "I hope the lead I'm mining will be used in your paint," is an epic threat, in retrospect, especially when uttered by a half-winking immigrant with a white donkey in the background.
