As I get older, I'm slowly getting rid of things I don't need. But before I do I'll share them with all you nice people.

Something Else #2, 4 of 4
Like, here's the last of that issue of Something Else #2 from March 1971, the establishment's attempt to cash in on youth culture. You can see by the holes, it was designed to be put in your school binder.
Parody of the Winston ad campaign questioning the grammar of the campaign. It's funny how humor magazines always had articles and ad parodies of the consequences of cigarettes but if shows like Mad Men are any indication, the editors were probably casual about smoking cigarettes in the office.
I guess this is supposed to be about the irony of the ultimate “God and country” mascot being someone with long hair, though if it is, I think it's more cynicism by the Joe generation trying to fit in with the hippies not politically but recreationally, because 82% of hippies were queers and that's a fact.

Much of the material here is at least a generation old and therefore sometimes has racist and sexist standards we wouldn't conform to today. I try, but can't always do a line-item veto. Remember, if something has stereotypes it's posted in spite of them and not because of them. You're not wrong to be offended, think of it like a friend you like hanging out with 95% of the time but once in a while they embarrass you. My own attitude is to move forward.
Many of the images I posted between 2011-2013 were disappeared by the image bank I was using then but I still have most of the scans and am bringing them back slowly. Be patient.
Some people don't realize you can make images bigger by clicking on them or that there are earlier postings beyond this page. Well, now you know. You're welcome.
