Who could ever forget the classic Twilight Zone episode starring Telly Savalas about the malicious talking toilet that makes spooky, murderous threats of death upon his life? "I'm talking toilet, and I'm going to kill you..." and my favorite bit, "I'm going to wipe you out!" What an eerie episode! And here's the great novelty gag version of it from 1971 to redden your face and make you run screaming from the bathroom, as it hurls macabre threats against you and your dirty, doomed derriere! The fun artwork on the box really sells the prank too. No more party poopers.

Here's some fun cowgirl packaging for a case of Liquid Nails by Macco from the 70's... and yes, this is the exact thing I'm looking for first and most importantly when in need of a resilient, waterproof adhesive bond. I could also swear there was an old commercial featuring this cute lady unholstering her stix and squirting some studs (and other surfaces), --but I'll be damned if I can find it online anywhere now!

If you like old movies and ice cream then this is the post for you! Ice cream cup lids featuring your favorite stars of 40's films was certainly a great way to sell some frozen treats and promote current films back in the day --especially when it's four of the most glamorous gals to ever grace the silver screen! I'm not exactly sure how many different movie star lids there were in all to collect, but there seems to have been a LOT-- I do know that Arthur Cook's "All Cream" Ice Cream was made down in Hot Springs, Arkansas! You could even save up 12 lids and mail 'em in for enlarged star photos.

These kitchy, novelty water squirters from the 60's or 70's are fun little gag gifts from our groovy past. I've posted a few of them here at AEET before, HERE and HERE! This one though is a bit more psychedelic than our previous entries, highlighted by fab box art featuring some rock 'n roll hippies drinkin' too much beer, and thusly having to relieve themselves --on (a) barrel! Yep, you can peace on a barrel all you want, --but please refrain from poocing on it!
