    Don’t know why, but the phrase “made a man out of Mac” doesn’t sound very pleasant to my ears…

    ;-P

    The strip’s text is just awesome, one of the most awkward things I’ve read in the past three years :-D

      Three years? What beat this in 2008?

      • Mac of BIOnighT October 1, 2011 at 1:02 am #

        :-D Nothing, probably, but my memory can only go that far back ;-)

      Totally. My favorite is the “Later” banner. The olden day equivalent of “A Six Pack In Two Weeks!”

      • bmj2k October 1, 2011 at 11:22 am #

        You almost get the impression they meant “later that day,” which is I’m sure how they wanted it.

          Too bad Chuck Norris & / or Mr. T weren’t big back then. ;)

          Right – also, the girl is still wearing the same bikini and hairdo :)
          I love it all, but my favorite bit is “Gosh, what a build!” “He’s already famous for it” :-D Now, apart from the totally unnatural wording, let’s examine the facts: OK, he’s built lots of muscles in just, say, a week or two (black magic at work here)? He’s been away from the beach for all that time, obviously, from what he says when he looks at himself in the mirror. He goes back to the beach for the first time with his new body (his girlfriend would also need a hand with her own body, by the way) and he’s already famous for that? Fame costs very little effort and spreads quickly in that area…
          I won’t even mention the fact that he gets a new body just to become a violent bully himself.
          Awesome, really :-D

            Nicely done! I am glad I didn’t write this week because you said it all.

            Maybe he made a pact w / the Devil to get magic, demonic steroids ? ;)

            • Mac of BIOnighT October 1, 2011 at 8:36 pm #

              Demonic Steroids might very well be the next big thing! I’ll get to work on the ads immediately :-D

                Side effects may include :
                Skin sensitive to holy water, adverse reactions to contact with Bibles & hymn books, etc. ;)

                  If no one minds shrunken testicles than those won’t be a problem.

                  • Daniel October 2, 2011 at 3:58 am #

                    Hitting those high notes on the ” Star – Spangled Banner ” wouldn’t be a problem anymore…..

    The Good Ole Days – B.S. & B.B.D. ( Before Steroids & Before Blood Doping ).
    & I also remember the interesting stuff that could be found on the BACK of a comic book.

    • bmj2k October 1, 2011 at 11:21 am #

      I remember so many old comic bood ads that featured OJ SImposn, like Dingo cowboy boots. I should get them all posted one day.

      • Daniel October 1, 2011 at 12:08 pm #

        OJ Simpson ? Holy cow ! I saw some ads for a ” bowling ” game featuring Roger Staubach. I even had the game. Combination of mini – tetherball & bowling.

      You mean like that thing to look through walls and those speedo long johns?

      • Daniel October 1, 2011 at 6:56 pm #

        X – ray specs, sea – monkeys, voodo kits, hovercraft. It made you believe anything was possible. ;)

    I can’t get enough of old writings. I have an old cartoon book of Casper. I SO used to read that when I was a kid. The comic was v funny :)

    • bmj2k October 1, 2011 at 11:20 am #

      When I was a kid I mostly read superhro comics but when I got a little older I liked the old Harvey comics (Sad Sack and Sarge, etc) and Casper and Ritchie Rich a lot of nice, simple fun.

    Weren’t these ads in the back of comic books? I always wanted those glasses that could see through things.

Have something to say? Let's hear it!
