I Don't Get It

Things That Don't Make Sense

Not Exactly Pin The Tail On The Donkey November 16, 2018

Cactus 49

Shove The Sombero On The Bulldog is a variant of the common child’s party game, wherein a cowgirl chases down a … Dear God, I don’t know what they’re doing. These images from 1949 raise more questions than they answer.

Like why would you park your jalopy on steps?

And is she kneeling in prayer, cursing the car’s engine or praising the argyle socks of a would-be beau?

Why hasn’t anyone prebussed this table? I see some empties.

Why don’t men wear ties like this anymore? And why does the one on the lower left look like Viewmaster reels?

What did Hiram do to deserve such bevy of beauty adoration? Is his thigh numb now?

And why would Bart and Molly bother with a “pretzel battle” at the fall barn party?

I think that makes them married, in some countries.

When Men Were Rakish November 15, 2018

Cactus ’43

Time was, when hats were jaunty, and fellas would tilt a brim to the brink of audaciousness. Who could resist the power of this hombre in particular, gathered among his fellow American Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Engineers?

 

Oh, The Ennui Of Driving Through Sequoias November 9, 2018

Images of America

Over 100 years ago, when this image was taken in California, the absence of windshields demanded that the driver (right-sided in this case) wore a duster and goggles as he wound his way through grounds without paved streets. Ladies often wore something similar to this.

That’s quite a bit of work required before jumping in and cranking the engine. This pint-sized pooch seems to think it’s worth it.

Oh, my goodness, y’all. Could these little boys BE any cuter? All dressed up in the 20s to emulate Charlie Chaplin for a lookalike contest. Bless their hearts.

Fun fact via Newsweek:

In 1975, several years before his death, Chaplin entered a look-alike contest of himself in France. He probably thought he was a shoo-in for the prize and everyone would have a hearty laugh at the end. But then he came in third.

Young Hollywood by Frank

Today, rather than looking back as usual, we look to modern young Hollywood actresses, all daughters of famous parents. I think you will agree that Riley Keough has the striking good looks of grandmother Priscilla Presley.

Below is Mickey Sumner, the eldest daughter of Sting (aka Gordon Sumner), striking a typical pinup pose.

Although this yellow polka dot bikini is reminiscent of Taylor Swift’s style, it’s actually Ireland Baldwin. The apple didn’t fall from the tree, as she clearly resembles mom Kim Basinger more than pop Alec Baldwin.

We end with Billie Lourd, daughter of Carrie Fisher.

1978 Cactus

No, no, it’s not that! It’s two co-eds passing a lifesaver on toothpicks during Halloween of 1977. In fact, all of these images are of college students celebrating Halloween that year. Bless her heart…

It’s the Great Pumpkin!

Double Dracula!

An ape loving his Chiquita Banana.

Reverse border patrol agent.  

Classic clowns. 

Members of Devo with a wooly beast.

And who could forget Tarzan and Jane?
