Madge Was Evil

There were lots of annoying characters in commercials, especially the 70's. However, none was as disgusting and grotesquely comical as Madge, the sinister manicurist from the Palmolive commercials. Every time, that crusty woman with a lascivious smile acted out on her sexual fetish to grab women's hands and put them into little bowls filled with green slime. SNL should have done a parody where one of Madge's victims runs out of the beauty parlor screaming.

Go ahead and watch! It's like a car accident! You can't turn your eyes away!

To this day, I still can't buy Palmolive.

I don't even need to watch the videos. I remember those commercials all too well.

I'm with Adam. I was young at the time, but I was always baffled as to why anyone would soak their fingertips in undiluted dishwashing soap. Are their fingernails really that dirty? The victims always jerk their nails out, and Madge shoves them back down... why don't the women backhand her? Bleah.

I agree. Madge was evil.
