Curious. I was thinking this gadget works on another part of the body...

(I'm joking, of course. Some advertisement in the pulp magazines are hilarious watched from today's point of view)

Rogaine only works on the back of the head, not the top. Assuming it works at all. This gadget looks as useful as X-Ray Specs and the Spy Pen.

And how many poor, desperate bastards bought it.

Evan Lewis said...

Based on the Consumer Price Index, ten bucks in 1938 would be over $150 today.

I wonder how many they sold?

@ Bob - you mean those X-Ray specs didn't work? How do you know?

Sign me up! I need a good head massage to get my brain working today.

Er, someone told me, Rick. Yeah, that's it, someone told me.
