Writer Erin O'Brien comments on all things human.
Looks like a National Recovery Administration logo to me. I thought it was declared unconstitutional.
Aw hell, Tony--you're right--changing the title this minute!
Its sad, because I look at that and my first thought is "I would really like a green bedspread and blue walls."
In the interest of full disclosure, I wrongfully cited the National Rifle Association in the original title of this post. The intrepid Tony Rugare pointed out my misstep. The NRA symbol on this vintage cover of "Cupid's Capers" represented the now-defunct National Recovery Administration.That, people, is what you call sloppy sloppy sloppy behavior on the part of your humble hostess. Mea culpa.But oh delicious mistakes! The designation dates the cover to the early '30s, proving that interest in the Cleft of Venus is nothing new.Then we have the question, did a public entity fund this filthy pornography? Was the publisher an NRA affiliate? Dear readership, you're humble hostess does not have time to properly research these begging questions (obviously). But if I did, I'd probably start here.
Alright...someone has to ask...why is she wearing a watch?
Cuz I said I be there in fifteen minutes.
I just asked someone to try to assume that position. It takes on a whole different look with her wearing flannel pajamas, but it still makes me want to help prop her up.
Alright, let's look at this thing from a distance first. The image has a title, Cupid's Capers, and a price, 25c. It has a date, Oct. It looks to me like the cover of a periodical of some sort.The National Recovery Administration (which I had not heard of before) existed for a short time during the dirty 30's - at which time 25c was a pretty steep price for a periodical - Life magazine was 10 cents. The NRA tried to limit 'destructive competition' and ensure fair wages.I conclude, therefore, that Cupid's Capers was not produced by the NRA, but rather was a semi-pornographic publication (the picture here was very risque for 1930), and that the publication displayed the NRA logo, as did many businesses at that time who wanted to display solidarity with the working man.
Dean, I'm lighting the drinking lamp early for you.
It's such a pity that it isn't the National Rifle Association though; undoubtedly there would have been many puns about 'guns' being 'unholstered'. Sadly we can all only imagine what could have been...
Interesting that such an unusual pose seems so erotic. Anyway...Equality creeps just a wee bit closer. DADT is no more. Merry Christmas.RJ
Unlike today's Playboy centerfolds, Cupid's Capers allowed a pundendal cleft.And for that, I have popped a boner.
OK, maybe it's me, but her cleft seems a bit out of proportion - I mean, not even Pam Anderson's is that close to her navel...
...I wonder if I can bend like that...
I like your hairstyle here, O'Brien
