I usually hate to admit that there are other websites out there. There’s Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride, The Christian Science Monitor, and lots and lots of naughty naughty sites. But I have to be honest, sometimes, just this once, and say that yes, I do go to other sites. For example, I followed a Facebook link to Awkward Family Photos. The best I can say about them is that they used to be a lot funnier. But I was bored and around the fourth of fifth page I found this old article. (No, not an old-time article “ye,” but a newspaper article.)
Wow, remember when little televisions were cool and state of the art? And an AM/FM radio too? Awesome! But the sasquatch on the left? Never in style. He is clearly wearing a dog on his head. And the rest of the outfit? Obviously from the Herb Tarlek Collection at Mr. Polyester.
Laugh if you will, but that style is not limited to real or imagined newsmen.
