Well, let’s just say
that I know what
you’re thinking, man.
Another case of Müscleheaded False Advertising.
And OK —
— it’s a fair cop.
You wouldn’t want
to see a real example
would ya ?
Not without an
eye wash station handy,
that’s for sure.
the people who spend
a lot of time on Orient Beach
wish that I never heard
of the place.
And I’ve still got sand
in my belly button
from the last visit, so…
Be that as it may (ahem) —
If you like the kinda vintage cards
we feature on the Muscleheaded Blog..
you might already be familiar with
the name of a famous 1940’s
publisher of witty postcards–
The Exhibit Supply Company of Chicago.
And I have certainly aready
posted some of their stuff —
In the post
” Low Art Exhibit –
Exhibit Supply Company “, for instance.
— what do you mean
you didn’t read that one? :-O
don’t give it another thought, man ….
It’s not like there was any:
—— that you missed completely and utterly.
Nothing to worry about.
And if you listen carefully,
you might hear the faint sounds
of a Bronx cheer off in the distance ….
You can make your formal apology later.
you could just get a license for it.
Yes, my friend —
“Any Old License To Do Any Old Thing”.
There were 8 different sets of these —
subdivided into 4 sets for men,
and 4 sets for women.
It worked on the same principle
as those nickel gum machines
with prizes in little plastic bubbles —
You wanted the cool smoking skull,
but you always ended up with
the cheap plastic ring,
the little blue super-bouncey ball,
the sticker that said “Kick Me“.
you were better off acquiring the set.
If you bought one of the men’s sets,
(“A Barrel Of Fun “)
you might get a license for :
Become A Blonde
Be A Flirt
Be A Backseat Driver
Be A Joy Killer
Join The Alimony Club
Be A Beach Vamp
or you could
Get A Shimmie License ….
… that could probably be pretty useful).
The ‘operating a still’ thing,
you gotta remember how fresh
in people’s minds Prohibition was in the 1940’s,
so I guess that one is certainly forgivable.
And ‘becoming a blonde’,
no harm in that,
assuming you weren’t a redhead.
There’s too many
of those people in the world now,
and I bet they don’t even have a permit.
