How To Party Like It’s 1970

Once you’ve worked up a sweat, go grab yourself a glass of cold refreshments from an ancient chaperone.

Dance to the groovy tunes of a guy wearing a headband.

And if possible, be crowned something that proves you’re better than everyone else.

See the envy in their eyes as you rock that crown. Dang, it feels good to be a gangster.

Fisherman Chic Linked To Recent Eye-Gouging

Portuguese fishermen, Nat Geo 11/48

As you can see, the fishermen of Nazaré, Portugal traditionally donned checkered garb and long, wool hats (which could work double-duty as Christmas elves).

Doesn’t he look like Santa’s long-lost lumberjack cousin?

Before Gaga’s Meat Dress, There Was Frank Skirt

Geene Courtney had the honor of being Queen of National Hot Dog Week 1955, a pageant sponsored by the Zion Meat Company. Personally, I’d rather have skipped the meat scarf and just posed with a fish on a skyscraper. 

Gail Hooper was paired with this 56-pound catfish (that must have been carried up an elevator all those flights of the Hotel New Yorker), as part of her duty as Miss National Catfish Queen in 1954. 

I imagine they both took long, hat baths after that!
