Let's Think This Thing Through

From the August, 1971 issue of Popular Science magazine comes this advertisement for inflatable shorts:

We confess we are somewhat confused -- and more than a bit troubled -- by the promise of this garment to "slenderize where you need it most." Upon reflection, we are confident that we have no desire to have "slenderized" anything in our shorts.

But maybe that's just us.
