Jeannette Marie sent me a link to a pattern auction on eBay (from seller Farfalla design studio check them out, they have good stuff!) that included this gem:
This was a clipping that the seller found in the pattern! I don’t think I’m going to use any of these suggestions at my next party. Although I might pass this around to scare people. “Just imagine 10 or 12 young boys all yodeling at the same time”? No, thank you.
I like to imagine this sort of stuff was written by mostly-drunk, completely hard-boiled, oft-divorced newspapermen who were kept out WWII by bad ankles, and was hammered out on typewriters with stuck “j” keys …
I can’t believe I missed this one.July 5, 2007
