This classic ad — is it for Roth bacon, Aunt Jemima buttermilk pancakes, Iowa tourism or a cardiac specialist? — was part of a gallery of classic ads on Jezebel yesterday (as Anthony was kind to point out) and is the perfect storm of everything that's holy about breakfast. It also gives me an excuse to break out the griddle tomorrow.
