The Daisy people used to advertise in Sad Sack comics, kids who read that dream of marching and peeling potatoes. Bill got a Model 26 for his birthday. Too bad dad is going to use up all of his BBs. Bill’s dad dreams of being a freeway sniper. He thinks that he is a real […]
This is kind of a typical beach humor postcard from the forties and fifties. That dog though… What have they been feeding him? And how does that guy manage to be up to his neck in about a foot of water? Seems like they phoned it in on this card.
Chuck saved his money and got an old Chevy. Not to be outdone, Jimmy Carpenter got a Cattle-ac.
I recently acquired some Marilyn Monroe trading cards. They’re nice and all, she was a beautiful lady. Still… Can she build a chicken coop? Can she expand your bedroom? The Monroe Brothers certainly had their merits, ask anyone in Hootersville.
This postcard offers the pathetic excuse for not writing, “having too much fun”. We haven’t had much fun recently, but I have been watching some Youtube videos featuring people exploring the most remote desert locations, old charcoal kilns, a stagecoach stop, stuff like that. No masks, no protestors, just warm desert sun. Maybe I’ll mail […]
A sadist, a masochist, a murderer, a necrophile, a zoophile and a pyromaniac are all sitting on a bench in a mental institution. “Let’s have sex with a cat?” asked the zoophile. “Let’s have sex with the cat and then torture it,” says the sadist. “Let’s have sex with the cat, torture it and then […]

Because of a fundamental misunderstanding of what “80 pound stock” means., kids probably expected an 80 pound monster. ( First your Sea Monkeys died, now this. )
I guess this is OK for a paratrooper, but if her boyfriend works at McDonald’s, or is a dope dealer, it could be sort of creepy. And what if she isn’t in the yard at all, maybe it’s just a whimsical plywood gardener’s butt? My neighbor used to have one, but come to think of […]
In the winter of 1967, you can bet there was a lot of “FAILURE… to communicate.” And just maybe, a run on eggs? I wonder if this is when Paul Newman got the idea for his Salad Dressing empire.
This bee guy on YouTube went to get bees from a wall of a house, unfortunately he also found cockroaches, and the framework was ruined by termites. Makes me thankful that my worst critter problem is a woodpecker that attacks our aluminum siding in the morning sometimes. I guess he likes the way it feels, […]
