Project Four – Part One

Ho, Ho, Whore

Ho Ho Whore

I dove into this assignment originally looking for modern examples of commercial advertising from which I might draw some irony. I wasn’t, however, satisfied with the plethora of too skinny models I saw there. It was in this historical example that I found life. It speaks to me because I can remember a day when smoking was a perfectly acceptable thing to do indoors, in any public or common place, or next to any other person (even babies). I chose the phrase I did because perhaps even today it is a little shocking. Shocking perhaps for its public license here rather than confined to a health flyer or a radio talk show. Shocking also because from a certain point of view, not Mrs. Claus’s, it is the truth.
