Pulp ad: Just wait a cotton-picking minute

This has to be the most innovative ad for a pulp magazine. If you send a dime, they’ll send you a free issue of the magazine and spend the dime on buying cotton to help the south.

Any other wacky pulp ads you can remember? Leave a note in the comments.

PS: If you want to know the advertiser’s opinion of those who might take up this offer, you have to look at the bottom of the ad, where there are directions on what needs to be done. Look for the words “This is the magazine”…
