    Books: you don’t have to plug them in, they won’t crash on you, there’s no fear of CRT-type radiation or equivalent, you can go back and forth with them and skip around all you want. And you STILL don’t have to plug them in or use ANY electricity, reading lamps notwithstanding. And you get stimulated to use your imagination, to make pictures in your mind. Three cheers for books and the printed word!

    Punk inna trunk?
    Here’s a real one from Mad magazine, circa 1967:
    We know a punk whose name is Yunk. They put him in jail for killing a monk.
    He wasn’t told by Officer Wunk
    To call his lawyer, Bernie Shtunk.
    His legal rights had therefore shrunk.
    And his confession was deemed “bunk,”
    And in the street he went, ker-plunk.
    So if you’re caught while pushing junk,
    Or stuffing someone in a trunk,
    And you are worried that you’re sunk,
    Just remember the tale of the punk named Yunk.
    The End.

    Some people have complained that Mr. Magoo is a negative stereotype of handicapped/physically challenged people. Maybe that’s why we don’t see him so much anymore.

    Pop essay question: If Superman is a symbol of “white supremacy,” then what is Elmer Fudd?

    I think that’s what they talk about when they say “Beware of the pogonip.” Not so good to breathe in, either.

    The nappy look is “in.”
    What a change from a generation or so ago.

    In my childhood neighborhood (say that fast three times), one of the girls’ birthday was Halloween. A couple of years we all gathered in her basement for a party, but most of those years we all went trick-or-treating.
    This was in the early-to-mid 1960s, before the bad stuff began; candy with drugs (e.g. sleeping pills ground into them), apples with razor blades hidden inside, pins, etc. etc.. How terrible that Halloween became so dangerous.
    By the way – anyone remember trick-or-treating for UNICEF?
