Guardians of the Galaxy was great. But I'd pay twice as much to see a feature-length version of this.

Musical Celebration of Innocent Verdict



After being deemed innocent on charges of attempted terrorism while trying to smuggle 20,000 euros out of the UK in her underwear, Nawal Msaad gave her unique public reaction to the verdict in the form of the video above.

Many more odd and fascinating details (Chanel-enhanced ankle monitor) at the link.

The Disembodied



If you like the snippet above, featuring the sensuous writhings of Allison Hayes (Attack of the 50-Foot Woman), then watch the full movie below.

Thanks, BMN!

I think Dad would rather look at the last ad in this sequence.

All taken from the same 1951 issue of BOYS LIFE.

Where’s Wenda/Wilma?

I never realized there were female counterparts to Waldo, nor that one could purchase Halloween costumes along those lines. But the disparity between Wenda and Wilma--or is that just two conflicting sides of the same woman?--is very confusing.

I venture to suggest that there is no mystery as to what will appeal to the recipient of such gifts. Most men, if presented with an old dishrag by a Christmas "elf" in such attire, would be quite happy.

Original ad here. (Scroll down and to the right.)

Babette Goes to War



Brigitte Bardot fights Nazis! Possibly an inspiration for both Hogan's Heroes and Private Benjamin...?
