I know someone in England who worked on constructing Andrew Lincoln’s beach house there. Swears he’s the nicest guy in the world – would bring the construction crew coffee and pastries all the time and hang out.
The whole swearing-on-male-private-parts story is highly dubious and probably not accurate at all, but women were usually – although not always – represented by a male advocate in court becuse they were considered unable to speak for themselves.
Cigarette vending machines were banned in most places by the Food and Drug Administration in 2010 because they made it too easy for kids to buy cigarettes. They are still permitted in places where no one under the age of 18 is allowed to enter, though (this doesn’t include bars, since most states allow children to enter bars with their parents – it’s mostly just places like strip clubs that still have them).
I wouldn’t say the presidential heads are “hidden”, really – they’re just sitting in the middle of a field, crumbling away. They were the centerpiece of an open-air museum near the farm called “Presidents Park” that opened in 2004 but went bankrupt in 2010 because, as it turns out, nobody wants to pay to walk around a bunch of giant president’s heads. Go figure.
I was wondering if someone else would bring that up. White supremacists co-opted something as ubiquitous as the OK sign and made it their sneaky way to signal ‘White Power’ when on camera (the 3 extended fingers form the “W” and the circular thumb and forefinger alongside the extended middle finger form the “P”). Another thing they ruined.
So if it’s just about her mother being rich, then why isn’t the setup for the joke about how much money her mother has or how she spends all day at the country club? The setup is specifically that she has a successful career in a traditionally male field.
I stand corrected on the date (but it was still sexist in 2007).
That would be correct, if not for the deliberate focus on her having a successful career as the setup for the “I don’t know what she looks like” joke.
Yikes. The old “a working mother is a bad mother” trope. One would think Mr. Detorie would be a little more evolved in 2019 – women can be doctors and lawyers and still love their kids and be good moms, Rick. I really doubt we’d see a similar strip about a kid not recognizing her dad because he dared to use his brain and get a medical degree.
It’s covered a lot of places and is pretty easy to find. One site is here: https://www.thevintagenews.com/2018/12/10/william-patrick-hitler/
