Follies of the Madmen #277


Consider the iconography: woman who forgot to rinse off all the soap bubbles from her bath provokes love and/or lust among male subway riders.

The guys probably think it's Bubbles LaRue on her way to work. (I don't have time to search right now, but didn't Peter O'Toole lose his virginity to her?)

@Phideaux: Wasn't she J.D. LaRue's grandmother?

@Paul: Don't let those floating hearts in the ad mislead you into thinking those men have any love for Miss Dial-a-doll, they're just indicating a spike in blood pressure.

If that's a shower cap she's wearing in the subway, it seems she has located a couple new clients for her business.

Good clean sex.

Remember PhisoHex? That stuff seemed to dissolve the top layer of skin but it killed anything that was on the skin. Great for treating wounds, B.O. and acne.. Too bad it is off the market.

Nah, it's Sally Rand doing her bubble dance.

Guys, do you not realize? The greatest scent in the world is that of a freshly-washed woman. I mean, I'd definitely leave my wife at the door without the good-morning kiss, knowing that I'd encounter this lovely CLEAN woman on the train.

Shower, have some good clean fun and then you need another shower. (if your doing it right)
