Nut loss during team building

Richard Langtry became a little over-enthusiastic during a day of team building and decided to give his employee, Michael Peacock, a friendly male-bonding tug. Which is to say he "grabbed [Peacock's] left testicle, squeezed it hard and pulled it down as if to rip it from his groin." Peacock is now one nut short, and is suing just about everyone even remotely associated with the day of team building. [pix11.com]

Yes, men's socks were really improved by the spinoffs of aviation technology, and are somehow emblematic of an era of increased air travel.

From Esquire for October 1962.

Sexy Stock Certificate

image

When Playboy sold its first stock in 1971, they felt their certificate should reflect their main enterprise. Hence the appearance of Playmate Willy Rey, who alas met a sad end just a couple of years later.

You can own one for a mere $400.00.

Gaytime Raspberry Roughs



Alas, in this less-innocent year of 2015, anyone soliciting a "gaytime raspberry rough" and expecting an ice cream treat is likely to get something different than they anticipated.
