Off Topic-Hilarious Pics in 1977 Catalog

I needed a laugh after all of this QE2 and TSA nonsense...and I found one I wanted to share.

A 1977 JCPenney Catalog

I share this for a good laugh, and to actually make a point...group think is DANGEROUS...which leads to the next link. If you haven't seen the BBC Documentary Century of the Self, then you need to watch it.

Thanks...I'm still wiping my

Thanks...I'm still wiping my tears away...and my sides hurt!

I want to jump in a time machine

and go back to 1970 and do it all over again. That was a blast from the past..

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

There are a few moments I would not care to repeat...

but all in all, I am with you. It was a pretty innocent time, when weed was just weed and everybody smoked or looked the other way. We had a buddy OD on heroine, the cops just came and revived him, called the ambulance for him. I mean, he LIVED! It was just a kinder time, or maybe just a kinder me.
But the catalog... Man, I had bell-bottoms TWICE as big as that chick - and hair, too.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

If only I could buy these gorgeous ensembles now

My husband is too much of a gentleman to say anything, he would wear it to work if i bought it for him.

Sweet!

Man, that was one giant manual on how to get your A$$ kicked in just about any situation!

Love the blog. I'm a child of the 80's myself.

And for those who haven't seen that documentary you linked - DO IT. Must viewing for anyone awake, and especially for those still asleep.

Brilliant!

Much appreciated.

I laughed till I cried...

Thank you!

Loved the furry green toilet tank cover...

I could pet my toilet:)

Like the Blog.

I admit I wore some of that stuff. My mom would buy my dad and I matching shirts, gah!

Corduroy OP shorts?

thanks!

my blog is an odd mix of the two things i love...Gen X pop culture and libertarian politics...

i love being a part of the C4L, and I love blogging about politics. But, every once in a while, I just like to talk about a good Family Ties episode.
