Johnson Smith Catalog Item #17

[Click to enlarge]

What a shame bow ties are not much in style these days. Imagine how popular you would be, when flashing the "Drop Dead!" message!

"Is that a giant drycell battery in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?"

From the 1950 catalog.

Imaging the hi-tech required back in the '50s to get this done. Today's LED lights and low power requirements make it a who lot easier! Click Here for some "MUST HAVE" items.

"Goes over with more of a bang than the atomic bomb!"

So now I have a picture in my mind of a guy wearing a flashing 'Drop Dead' bow-tie as images of exploding atomic bombs go off in the background.
