Follies of the Mad Men #120


[From Life magazine for January 10 1949.]

This hideous Donnie Darko-style image will haunt you forever, and make you swear off beer-drinking at once.

Furries and beer: two things that must never mix.

It was 1949, the big war had ended and Korea hadn't gotten into full swing. It was a happy time, the men were back and the women could start acting normal again leaving there sinful ways behind. Parties didn't need an excuse and erupted spontaneously as is being depicted here. 6 or 7 weirdo just happen to meet in a ballroom full of balloons and booze.

What could be more natural!?!
