That thing

It looks like Grumpy Cat's precursor - "Melancholy Cat"

Changing Times

It is interesting to see how messaging for Camels once emphasized their agreement with a female smoker. I once saw an advertisement from this same era for that bastion of western masculinity, Marlboro. A woman provocatively held one of their cigarettes with the brown paper around the filter - the caption read, "Ivory tips protect my lips."

Is that thing in the window? A dog, cat, alien? Whatever it is, I wonder if it's name is Spot.
