Look for the Sanforized label!

From Life magazine - Sep 15, 1941:

JULIA: Gk-gk-stop choking me, you brute!
GEORGE: I've been choking all day in a shrunk-up shirt because you forgot to look for the right label.
JULIA: What label?
GEORGE: The 'Sanforized' label, dumb-puss. The one that says the fabric won't shrink more than a little 1% by standard tests.

Looks like back then they'd come up any lame excuse to have rough sex.

What's that bulge in his pocket, BTW.

Well, that is kind of harsh. But, if she waits a couple of months, he'll be called up in the draft and sent off to war, perhaps to meet his end at the end of a Japanese rifle barrel. Then she can find someone else better then this brute.

OH for the good old days when men were men and women were our possessions and servants in the house, kitchen, and bedroom. Oh wait .. I could move to the middle east and have that still now 😉

I guess the joke was on George. He choked her when it was his fault. Dumb-puss should have kneed him in the groin, and sent him off to the Bataan Death March.

Good catch, Vern! Most of us around here are having trouble remembering what we had for breakfast!

Pssst! Paul! Alex is stepping on your time.
