Politically Incorrect Yearbook Comics 1949

This is all in good fun, but folks would cry “domestic abuse” in this day and age.

49Comet007When I think of Mary Wana, I think of hippies, not high school students in 1949. My bad.
49Comet005Fun with intentional homicide!49Comet006Uh-oh, bestiality!49Comet004 Mental illness was a laughing matter.


Hints of polygamy…

49Comet008And the grand finale of I-Don’t-Get-Itness…a bowlegged sheriff fondling a cactus made of student’s heads, as a vulture flies overhead. Because that’s normal.

    1. Well, I am not well-traveled, and I’ve never been to Arizona, so I’ll have to trust you on that one. Is there a coyote involved?


  1. This came through, for me, about an hour ago. I don’t know if I’m really senile or in the Matrix. In either event I liked it then and I like it now. I think I commented that people can’t view 60 year old humor with 21st Century eyes. I also said that some things are mean and nasty regardless of age. Maybe I mentioned that we, as a people have become wussified. I also think I complemented your header pics. The old one with the bread label and the new one with cars, guns, cops and helicopters. I hope this one takes. I don’t want to be stuck in the Matrix. Unless they have a deli and open bar


  2. Didn’t know yearbooks even had comics and if they no longer do, these examples are why. Sheesh. They’re not funny even a little bit–unless I’m missing something. And I think I’m willing and able to laugh at quite a bit! Though the Nut Hut one has a certain appeal–I would do very well in one of those.

    Great twist on your usual photos. Variety, spice of life.


    1. Well, at least the boy could draw. I’m not offended by them, but the years do change the way we perceive things. I like cartoons, so I was happy to see them in there. It is very rare, as you say.


  3. Those were the days, my friend, we thought they’d never end, we sang and danced, forever and a day …

    I had nothing for these wretched, ridiculous and indecipherable cartoons but to recite the lyrics to an old song that jumped to my head, Kerbey. I hope you had a good weekend, my friend.


    1. ‘Then the busy years went rushing by us
      We lost our starry notions on the way’

      Dam! We did!
      Did I sleep through their exit, stage right-wing?


  4. These must be humorous with a dose of Mary Wanna. That’s my only attempt at an explanation, dear kerbey. Otherwise, I don’t get it either.
