Vintage Ad #73 - Jackie Gleason Daisy Cup Bouquet
Would Ralph Kramden send me to the moon for being tardy in celebrating the week now known as Administrative Professionals Week?

Most people would appreciate a little more than a bouquet of daisies in a coffee cup branded after an entertainer, especially when it is served up with the subserviant attitude implied in this ad ("the great women that helped you make it"). How many of these bouquets were dumped on the manager's head?

Imagine the ad for the Mother's Day European Garden...
