[livejournal.com profile] progbear mentioned that he saw a book called Ad Boy, about the myriad characters so common in mid-20th century advertising. It reminded me of how often fat guys used to figure as ad characters: they were used to lure people in, and gave me a good reason to pull out this image from the Fat Boy hamburger chain.




Somebody also made pillows with it. I can think of any number of good uses for these ... :D

There seem to be a few Fat Boys left, although they might have fallen on hard times.

Also, an old Big Boy's restaurant photo ... )
