venus advertThings I like about this advert from the 1850s: ‘It has more Good Points about it than 9 out of 10 advertised articles’.  No need to elaborate what the good points are, and no problem about the fact that ‘9 out of 10 advertised articles’ are unlikely to be corset shields themselves.  No, the Venus Corset Shield is better than 90% of all the products on the market, regardless of what you actually need or want.  Incredible.  (PS: Any ideas on what a corset shield actually is?)
