Coincidence? I think not.

While goofing around online yesterday during a bit of down time, I uncovered some interesting vintage public health posters.

Why correct posture was ever such a pressing issue that it deserved its own public health campaign, I can’t imagine.

The suspicious thing is that I woke up with a killer back ache this morning. Subliminal suggestion? Or poor posture? The world may never know.

  1. These campaign posters are funny and new to me. I was raised to have good posture and grateful for it. I’ve seen people with terrible posture and the adverse effects it’s had on them physically. It does make a big difference.

  2. Neither of the puppet characters can look each other in the eye. Im not sure if the benefit of not slouching in that case, unless it just means you get a prettier dress and nicer hair.
    Also, as their puppets, doesn’t it suggest our deportment is actually in the hands of someone else? My puppet master I’d seriously slack, as I tend not just to slouch, but to completely recline whenever possible. Obviously my own puppet master used to be an Ancient Roman.

    • Hahahahahaha you just made my day, which was starting to head down the tubes.

      I was really puzzled by the puppet strings. All the marionettes I’ve ever seen are not only seriously creepy gross – the stuff of nightmares – but they also walk REALLY funny. Surely that’s not a good thing.
