The original Gerber baby

She is Ann Turner Cook , born today (20 Nov) in 1926.

This 88-year-old American great-grandmother is the original Gerber baby. She’s also a mystery novelist (as in mystery novels, geddit).

Man, they sure know how to pick a baby model in those days! She looks great even now.

As a Gerber baby myself, this woman is my hero.

She turned from a sketch into a person — how crazy is that…?

What the heck is a Gerber???

The food was … well … so-so, but the bottles were fantastic.

Give it a few more years and she’ll be back to eating Gerber herself and using diapers, if not already. (Sorry, just kidding.)

If she’s that old … R.I.P. Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben

You can read about Gerber’s (not-such-a-big-deal) branding blunder in Africa.

legs and creepers

Still remember that wonky TL;DR post of mine Why brothel creepers are rad’der than you think (23 Oct 2013)?

Yes, that one.

I quoted Paul Sweetman in the post. He left a comment there the other day:—

(Sorry, I didn’t buy the WordPress video upgrade, so please just click the link.)

Dr Sweetman is Senior Lecturer of Culture, Media and Creative Industries at King’s College London (University of London). He is the world’s foremost scholar on subcultures and the cultural sociology of fashion and consumption.

I’m chuffed to the bollocks (to borrow the phrase from British author Harold Pinter) to see such a distinguished person as Dr Sweetman leave anything on my blog.

As I’m the world’s foremost laughing stock when it comes to sane writing, that’s praise from one end of the spectrum to the other.

Schweet.
