#37: Funny (fake) MormonAds.

Pin It
As a teenager, I loved reading the "New Era", the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints' (Mormons) monthly magazine for youth. The New Era first came out in 1971 (same year that Willy Wonka invited Charlie to his chocolate factory), and it is full of great stories and talks. However, in addition to the stories and talks, my favorite part of the "New Era" is the monthly feature known as "MormonAds". MormonAds are posters that contain an uplifting slogan with a picture. I had MormonAd posters hanging on my wall as a teenager, and it brings back good memories to see them online. Click here to see the full list of the New Era's past MormonAds.

As I was researching some MormonAds from the past, I came across some hilarious fake MormonAds that I thought you might enjoy (originally found at http://www.divinecomedy.net/mormonadz/ and http://funnymormonads.com/, although it appears that both sites are now defunct).  As a Star Wars nut, I especially couldn't resist these first two. I love creative people!







Best fake MormonAd EVER!
