Bill Ding cartoon

I speculate that the creators of this ad had a different bit of art in mind, which was not exactly fit for a family newspaper. I hadn't thought about this until my friend Gabriella drew her guess at what the original graphic may have been, which was a man sitting in a chair playing with his own thingamajig while his wife started stripping in front of him. (Doesn't that make more sense?) Bill himself seems to be indicating something about his own 'plank' here.
 
Rejected ad slogan:
You can be somewhat helpful
By handing your husband a tool
Bill will give you a good time
After your husband sends you away - the fool!
