Alpine Qaeda!

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Drummond Sweater company isn’t around any more, what with ads like this (click the ad below to see it at full size):

Old ad for sweaters with headline 'Men are better than women!

The copy reads like something that the Mullah who called unveiled women “uncovered meat” would have written, had he gone into advertising:

Men are better than women! Indoors, women are useful — even pleasant. On a mountain, they are something of a drag. So don’t go hauling them up a cliff just to show off your Drummond climbing sweaters. No need to. These pullovers look great anywhere. On the level!

“Indoors, women are useful,” the ad copy may read, but looking at the two guys in the ad, I don’t think they have any use for women, nudge nudge wink wink.
