vintage globe ad of the day

Vintage Ad #739: Je-e-e-rry Gets Excited Over A Bowl O' Oats
Never mind Je-e-e-rry's prowess on the court...the critical question raised by this ad is whether a hearty bowl of Quaker Oats tastes better when served in English China. Je-e-e-rry doesn't care, though he is starting to wonder if his constant yelling of "oh boy!" while downing a bowl is a side effect of the "ultra violet rays" his breakfast was exposed to.
