No More Rain-Soaked Cigarettes! (Aug, 1931)

No More Rain-Soaked Cigarettes!
MANY are the inventions devised to insure a dry smoke, but it has remained for a clown appearing with a circus in England to solve the problem. An umbrella over the smoke keeps off water and a spigot drains off excess moisture.

    So, you use an umbrella for your cigarette and none for yourself?… why I didn’t think about that first? :)

    Okay that clown is extra-creepy even as far as clowns go.

    The rain must have washed all of that clown’s makeup off… as well as his lips, eyelids, nose, and skin.

    Creepy clown reminds me of the voodoo witch doctor in one of the James Bond movies.

    Maybe the idea behind this was to make smoking look so ridiculous, you would stop just so people would stop laughing at you.

    I’m pretty sure he’s supposed to be a ‘hobo clown’, hence the beard and otherwise lack of makeup. Other than that? I can’t explain this at all!

    FYI European clowns DO NOT wear the same make up as American clowns. This clown’s make up is appropriate for where he is from. Clowns that smoke do not smoke while entertaining.

    This picture is funny and crazy to me. I wonder how many people actually bought this product.
