Laugh Your Head Off!

Laugh Your Head Off! is a fun little paperback from Scholastic, compiled by Helen Alpert and published in 1967. Full of jokes, cartoons, witty sayings, perfect squelches, and other nonsense to brighten your day and make you the life of the party, but even better than any of the stuff listed above is the artwork and fantastic lettering style by Tom Eaton that graces the cover and each chapter header!

I did some research, and it looks like Mr. Eaton is another highly underrated artist of the 60's - 70's. I like his style, and this kind of lettering reminds me of some great cartoon shows.
I've also noticed there's often a resemblance of sorts between a dog and its owner... less noticeable in cats.

Way to save the best for last. I love the mod rocker and his mod dog. I also dig the way the Date Bait woman is dragging some heart along by a grisly fishhook. How Cenobite! Now that's what I call enchanting!

Part time third sub assistant to the deputy vice president in charge of closet space- Now that's a Job I would love to have! I have a feeling that job is reserved for either the son or son-in-law of the president of the company- I wonder if he needs a personal assistant?

Any Ideas where I should send the resume?

Yeah, that's one of the funniest job descriptions of all time... I think my faves are Silly Sallies and Wit's Bits, I'm always a sucker for the cute girlies.
