Rhymes with Rude

Since the original romance art doesn’t feature any dialog, I decided not to show it here. Instead, I’m celebrating the end of bathing suit season with a little naked humor…

Don’t forget your sunscreen—and syrup. Pancakes not allowed because…that would be silly.

One of us is sleeping. But which one?

Instead, stand in front of the bushes—where we can see and laugh at you!

Your New Breast Friend

Today’s Last Kiss: Ladies, he’s easily distracted. (“Squirrel!”)

He tries to look you in the eyes. (“Squirrel!)

And have a meaningful conversation. (“Squirrel!”)

But all of a sudden… (“Breasts!”)

Original Art:

To the right is the original art (plus a couple of panels) from Charlton’s Teen-Age Hotrodders #13 (1965).

It’s a hot-headed hotrodder versus a gang of rude, motor-mouthed motorcyclists. Given the title of the comic, who do you think will win?

Too Sexy for Your Socks

If this art looks familiar, it’s because it’s from the same First Kiss story as one of last week’s gags.

The original romance story was about a girl who receives a complete makeover (plus a new boyfriend.)

Last week’s art was the “Before” panel. Today’s was the “After.”

And, yes, I gave today’s Last Kiss art an additional makeover. I thought the joke worked better if the girl was smiling.

So I grabbed a smile from elsewhere in the story and gave it to the girl on the right. Voilà! Instant happiness!

socks off...plus anything else you’re wearing!

She Gives Good Headache

The dialog in the original 1960s art (right) leaves us hanging. Anyone want to come up with a clever suggestion to finish her thought balloon? What is her husband doing that she’s the last to know about?

Yes, sex is the obvious thing. But anything else?

WOMAN: No! I’m fine! I’m just practicing my headache for tonight!
