I Vant To Drink Your COVID Antibodies

Univ of Texas, Halloween 1976

This ape found his Chiquita Banana.

Although we bristle at this now, this was the reality of a 70s frat “Jungle Party” on 11/11/76. As Bob Wills says, “Time changes everything,” and we can see why.

That’s the great thing about yearbooks; they never get re-edited. So while it reveals a context with which we might now be uncomfortable, it also shows us how far we’ve come.

  1. Kerbey, I don’t know if I have ever said this to you (should have years ago), but your site is Top Shelf! I don’t know how you manage to find all these wonderful photos, but I love them all.’
    Oh, and by the way,
    “Texas Forever!”
    Just had to throw that quote from ‘Friday Night Lights” in there.
    Thank you for providing happy things in my inbox.
    Cheers,

  2. So what’s this year’s outlook for Halloween like in Austin? Over here they kinda-sorta tried to cancel all trick or treating, parties, etc. but that got everybody’s fur supremely riffled so they kinda-sorta walked it back and now there seems to be no official word on what’s allowed. The local neighborhood started this scheme where you are supposed to put a purple pumpkin in your yard if you are participating in trick or treat. I like that idea because it is real easy for me to ignore. I never much liked Halloween anyway. Except for dog costumes, of course.

    1. I agree; not big into it. We do have yard decorations because we’re not Commies, but I’m not sure this year’s plans. I have noticed in the last couple of weeks that people in stores are choosing not to wear masks, even in “mask required” places, and it’s not enforced, so I think by Halloween, kids will be back in full force. I don’t want to go buy a purple pumpkin.

  3. Our governor this week announced that trick or treat will be a go, Kerbey, parents please take precautions. Now Halloween masks also must carry a safety factor?! Oh, I’m going as a doctor says every single kid I’d allow out!
