Remember this Halloween, just say no to fattening extras and fill those trick or treat bags with bone dry tastes like rock hard paper crackers! ;-)
The real extra in this ad is that the illustration was done by a very funny illustrator who did lots of work for Seventeen magazine, Jan Balet (1913 to 2009). He was a famous German/US-American painter, graphic artist and illustrator. Affected by the style 'naive art', he worked particularly as a graphic artist and as an illustrator of children's books...he painted pictures in the style of naive art. Referred to as a nave painter, his works exhibit a dry wit and refreshingly candid, satirical view of life.

Today the skinny girl would be considered anorexic and the fat girl obese.

Notice the title of the ad ends with a question mark. However, the text of the ad seems to indicate the answer is yes.
