I got a few but I'm going to guess at a lot of them.
Hello Buddies, June 1952
Coffee makes her nervous as does being near lecherous soldiers? Would this be acceptable in a post-Weinstein society? Or even a post-baby boom society, for that matter?
This one too. Another gag where the punchline is that he's coercing a subordinate into sex. And this was a family magazine.
He still has poker from the night before on his mind. Would a dealer cap sell the gag or just make it too obvious?
I don't need the history lessons here. I see that these were the Democratic and Republican candidates that year and those cities are where the convention was being held. But what do the sizes mean?
This one actually makes the most sense in this issue. I've got more from this magazine in my gag shuffle you won't be able to make heads or tails of. (And I wrote these next two words without realizing they've been co-opted) Believe me.
Another “you had to be there” joke.
I guess she's either suggesting the engagement ring could be bigger or that they be married. But why is a searchlight on in the first place? Are they doing shadow puppets instead of making out or watching slides? And how come if she's holding the ring between her thumb and index finger, in the light it's in the web of her hand?
I guess you wouldn't know it was a cop if he didn't have the word “COP” written on his hat. And is that a child or lawn jockey? And that's a really small pig.
I don't even know if there's a gag here, I just find the caption really funny.
Maybe there is no joke, just a funny drawing. It works on that level.
