Doom Products

Very nice juxtaposition of the beautiful and the ugly in this postcard! The advertisement is for a pesticide that kills Japanese beetles from the Fairfax Biological Laboratory's line of Doom products.

The back states that the brew contains "microbial spores of Milky Disease," which have "proved fatal to Japanese beetles in the grub stage, without affecting beneficial insects, humans, animals, or plants." Sounds to me like the first fifteen minutes of any good sci-fi horror movie, just before the characters realize that the stuff they spread over the roses is killing humans too!

Great card! That's a very appropriate name for the product.

Very melodramatic!

Your link on the PFFs linky has a typo and doesn't lead here. I don't know if you can change it or add another.

What an interesting postcard - a perfect name for the product!

I also noticed that your link on PFF said your blog did not exist. At first I thought it was because you had "DOOM" in the title - LOL! :=}

I found you by going back to your link from a couple of weeks ago. I'm sure glad I did!!!
Happy PFF!

Creepy ladybugs. The flowers are lovely otherwise.
