Flushed! (Part One)

Flushed was a thin 'n tall style hardcover book published in 1963 by Kanrom Inc., and full of dirty jokes and equally dirty illustrated gags featuring a cavalcade of cartoon greats (see how many you can name) --the book even came with a chain for you to hang on a hook next to your toilet so you could read it in the john while doing your daily duty! Other books in this bathroom series: Jokes for the John, Poems for the John, More Jokes for the John, and Guest Register for the John. I'll have more highlights from Flushed! in our next post poo-- er, too!

Beachcombers & Spirit of '76 (Bar Guides)

As long as we're in Bar Guide mode, here are a few more, (also published by Southern Comfort), featuring lots of concoctions and photos of happy, groovy people having loads of loaded 70's fun-- the Beachcombers guide is dated 1971, and is a nice showcase of post hippy era swimwear.

Mod Happy Hour

Included with the Sunday, November 22nd, 1970 issue of the St. Louis Post Dispatch newspaper was this giant, fold-out Southern Comfort advertising supplement full of drink recipes and other helpful advice on all things party related. Not being a drinker myself (as mentioned here many times in the past), I'm instead posting these images scanned in sectional chunks because it is indeed quite large, and mainly because of the colorful lay-outs and timely art direction-- but ALSO especially because of the fab Mod Poster Special Offer with examples on nearly every page that accompany the fun photography! (Apologies again about the scans, the quality of this newsprint copy is very old, folded, stained, and brittle!)
