Vintage Skinless Wiener Ad Is Mildly Suggestive

Posted: Updated:

We're not here to debate if skinless wieners are better than the original kind. Whether you're pro-skin or not is a matter of personal preference which we'd rather not get into -- like the ketchup issue. But we would like to take a minute to act like a 5th grader and ask: aren't these vintage skinless wiener ads just mildly suggestive?

According to these Visking Corp ads from the 1940s, not only are skinless wieners tastier, but they're also more tender and juicy. We're not sure, but could they be making a commentary on circumcision while also trying to sell hot dogs? While we're perfectly willing to accept that we may just have our mind in the gutter, we still wanted to share these vintage ads. If for no other reason than the fact that they're absolutely bizarre. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
