Last Call: Movieland Wax Museum

This is why you keep your fowl and your canines apart; once the dogs learn how to fly, there will be no stopping them. No matter how unbelievably cute they are, no cage can hold them.

In New York: Dorothy Kilgallen (columnist-radio star) complained on the air that she had to wear a white Band-Aid on her cut finger to a party... said it looked awful. Next day Johnson & Johnson send an assortment of Band-Aids in shocking pink, cassia, leaf green, lavender. Will she start a trend?Answer: Apparently not. Unless Quick failed to report Band-Aids with SpongeBob SquarePants -- or I guess at that time it would have been The Shadow? (Only he knows.)
This issue of the vintage magazine has Esther Williams on the cover, and featured on pages 48 - 51. I sent scans of the article to Here's Looking Like You, Kid. 'Cuz I'm nice like that.

You Can't Dust M&Ms
At $2, it was a thrift shop steal.
But then, being 9.5 inches tall, and having a mouth diameter of 4.5 inches (much narrower than the base), it would cost, what, $45 to fill it with peanut butter M&M's?
Plus there's the additional cost of "a lifetime on the hips" -- because you cannot dust off M&M's, you have to eat them.
Clara Bow Cupid Lips 'Round A Cancer Stick
Proof That The 1950's Were Nutty
The seller says:
UNBELIEVABLY FABULOUS photo print of NUTS...shelled, and unshelled WALNUTS, and it looks like some shelled almonds are in there too, the 'photo' is black and white, which has been hand-colored in tan, sepia, green and gold with grey 'shadows'....LOVE IT!!!

Jack Davis Collection
It's unbelievable just how much stuff Davis has done — records, magazine covers, ads, books, it makes his Mad-magazine days seem like a blip on the screen, even though that's his most recognizeable work. The guy has done so much, everybody online who's got his work has something different - I doubt you can ever have a complete Jack Davis art collection.

April 1st, 1913 Orphanage Update
Apparently, as a result of this publication, one of the children's heads was adopted -- at least the photo was. (Which may have affected the Center of Gravity in the Human Body Study done at the home.)
