Stick Like Glue
Yesterday's glue got me thinking about those weird glass bottles with the rubber nipples which were so standard in grade school. This wasn't the glue kids were eating, but a weird sticky substance which was hard to control, but hugely popular in years gone by.
Look at this nutty ad for it. Love the font, though I'm not sure what the words on right side are. "Save the Pieces?"
You can find many great pictures of glue on google images. Just enter lepages glue. Great way to spend the morning!
But I'm not sure I'd like the idea of living in a converted Lepages glue factory, which this actually is, in Gloucester, Mass.
Elmer's Glue must have put Lepages out of business. And we all know what that glue is made of, right?
