Johnny Horizon

"Mom, Dad--I want to grow up to be an EPA field-worker like Johnny Horizon!"

Such were the words probably never actually spoken in the early 1970s, when the icon of Johnny Horizon was launched by the BLM. But if any lad or lassie did utter such a wish, then they could have been placated with the Johnny Horizon Environmental Test Kit. Parker Brothers showed a little poindexter hard at work in their ads for the kit.

With the stockpile of weapons & ammo the EPA has amassed one should also have small arms training too.

Yeah, right. Chemist's white lab coat but no safety glasses. Guess someone's been sniffing that blue liquid too long.

I wonder if anyone ever said "I want to grow up to be a non-attorney paid spokesperson" ?

I thought you were all for people stockpiling penis substitutes, Expat?
