The "Miss Atomic Energy" photo looks like it should be titled "Miss Thunder Thighs." Maybe in '48, people didn't know lightening & atomic energy have nothing to do with each other.

Virtual, are you politely ignoring the subtle phallic symbolism of the lightning bolt? As for the number os titles, well, one can never have too much publicity. Unless you're one of the untalented Kardashians - "Famous for being famous."

Would have made an excellent "name that list"

The atomic energy was used to generate electricity. Still is.
