Those Extra Holiday Pounds

LIFE 4-9-1956

Mom and the kids are throwing shade at Daddy again. And who could blame them? Dad must be up to 150 lbs at this point. I’d give my right pinky finger to hit that number.

Fact is, before there was a “Mony, Mony” song by Tommy James and the Shondells (if you’re a Boomer) or Billy Idol (if you’re Gen X), MONY meant Mutual of New York.


Myself, I’d never heard of such a thing. The only mutual I know is Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, starring Marlin Perkins.




  1. All I could think of was the “extra pounds”. I have added an extra 5 pounds in the last week. Pie’s all gone. Cake’s all gone. Still have ham. I love ham but I might as well have a salt lick in the kitchen considering all the sodium they have. We try to have it only once or twice a year. Happy New Years. Bring on the cabbage.
