Judy and the Judge (Jun, 1942)

Judy and the Judge

THE JUDGE is a man of firm words and fixed opinions. And there’s grim decision in his voice as he lays down the law to his daughter. “Young lady,” he says, “when you’re faced with a little trouble like mine, there’s only one course to follow. Take a good stiff, old-fashioned purge!”

BUT JUDY is not the Judge’s daughter for nothing. “Judge,” she says, “you are guilty of horse-and-buggy habits. Did it ever cross your legal mind to find and correct the cause of your trouble? Well, that’s a little matter we’ll ‘tend to right now! Come with me.”

“I OBJECT!” roars the Judge.

“Objection overruled! This crisp, crunchy cereal, kellogg’s all-bran, has just what it takes to correct the cause of constipation due to lack of ‘bulk’ in the diet. It may be the very thing you need! Just eat it every day, and drink plenty of water.”

“HOLD ON THERE!” says the Judge. “You little minx, why didn’t you tell me how good it tastes? If all-bran can make me ‘Join the Regulars,’ I’m giving it a lifetime appointment right now!”

Kellog’s All-Bran

    For some reason this makes me think of “Here come the Judge”. I wonder why?

    I starting singing Judy in Disguise (with Glasses) when I saw it.

    “When you’re faced with a little trouble like mine, there’s only one course to follow. Take a good stiff, old-fashioned purge!”

    Sounds like a 1942 Soviet judge.

    For the record, I don’t generally discuss the state of my digestion with my children.

    Or anybody else, for that matter.

    In the words of Bill Clinton, “It’s private.”

    Mitch, when it comes to digestion, some people just don’t give a $#!+.

    @ Mitch – And thats what this ads all about.

    I guess they used a judge so the copy writers could “squeeze” in some suggestive words such as “firm words” and “fixed opinions” Advertising has used subliminal messages for a long time.
