Newspaper and satirical publication, were training grounds for many well-known comic artists in the early 1900s. The health medicine product promotion crazed provided a great deal of employment for these and orther artist whose work is comperatively undocumented but worth . The humour from that time can seem crude or even offensive today, but the situations shown in the best humour book are as amusing and fresh now as they were then . There is a wealth of material in topical gags dealing with then novelities, such as health such as medicine effect to the bad evils. The first Humour Book from Bayer -Aspirin tablet (famous that time & now) promotion before the World war two Until now Bayer still use for promotion antipyretics medicine Panadol and also by insecticides againts Mosquito’s bite (Obat Nyamuk).
This Indonesian Humour Medicine Promotions book of Aspirin Tablet product Bayer in Indonesian language were very difficult to found in fine conditions.
Some of our collectors asking me to put in the blog the vintage Indonesia Heath humour (Karikatur), but very long time I didn’t found, and tomorow my friend Sofjan sold to me and I put in the blog, but in three episode :
1. Episode one : Simeon drunken back home and when he look at the beautiful girl on the balcon , Simeon fall in love and singging the song for her.
2. Episode two : Sudenly a cold water falling on Simeon faces and body, the Beautiful girl angry the he took the cold water and poured to Simeon from the balcon. Simeon run away and near his house there were raining and all his body have cold due the raining effect.
3. Episode three: During back home ,Simeon on the street feel affraid because he saw a gost her face very bad and her eyes bigger on. Simeon take a steal stick but the gost didn’t afraid and shoot her arrow to Simeon that made simeon filled pains.
4 Episode four : When Simeon arrived at his home, he sit on the chair, his hand filling broken like the steal stick knock down, many evil attacked him at head back and leg, that is why simoeon shouted loudly until mr Medicine hearded.
5. Episode five : The Bayer cross was hanging in the front the house called Apotheek(Medicine shop), the windows were open , like have oredr by some one, one tube full cointained run out. Look! one Aspirin tablet get in the glass and disolved alone. The Tube shouted to Simeon, lets drink fast. Right, soon after he drink all the disease off. Where the disease evil gone ? Aspirin took them out. (very clever didn’t kill, different the recent promotion all the devil were killed, why during that time allthe people think evil cann’t died)
The Bayer Aspirin promotion very suceed, also the recent common cold medicine “Bodrex” the evil were killed by the soldier ‘s angel.
