Sunday Funnies: Atypical Risque SPH Racism

While there’s no denying the racist tones of this risque mid-century “bar art” textile, I am surprised at the one small atypical finding…

The seller describes it thus:

This is a very vintage wall hanging suitable for a bar or man cave. It measures approx. 3 1/2 x 8 34/”. It features a “native” holding a can of beer and a glass of beer and asking the question “What’ll you Have?”. Back in the 50’s this type of risque wall art was found in home bars, more than likely the basement man cave. Completely and totally politically incorrect, over-the-top-tacky and I suppose kitsch. It has been very well preserved these many years and is in great condition. It has a little wooden dowel hanger at the top and the bottom edge is finished with fringe. The native’s long cloth (fringe) lifts up to reveal a surprise. It is made of fabric that has been treated with stiffening, the side panels are printed with gold ink.

While the seller does not show what’s beneath the native’s fringed attire, surely there’s no large penis hiding there. How unusual to see a racist piece that doesn’t boast of a “native” fool with a large tool, but instead goes for some small penis humiliation.

…But I am dying to see what’s there. Small penis, or not.

“Dip In Water & Watch Me Swell”

Oh, lordy, I am actually old enough to remember seeing these classic PBR bar sponges at taverns when I was growing up! (Hey, back then, it was normal for parents to bring their kids to taverns ~ there were always families there at pig roasts, corn roasts, etc.) Just like my man, CR/LF, the Super Cool Blue Pabst Man would swell in water. The difference is, when soap is added, the Cool Blue Pabst sponge would clean up; whereas my man prefers to get dirty. *wink*

Taco Or Beer Challenge

tacos beers abortion By now, you’ve likely heard about the Taco Or Beer Challenge. (If not, it was started by Andrea Grimes, rather as a joke, and has taken root. Via.) It’s pretty simple: eat a taco &/or drink a beer, take a video of yourself (much like the ice bucket ALS challenge), and then donate to an abortion fund.

Here Martha Plimpton challenges a few of her friends: the delectable Sarah Paulson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Gilliland.
