You Don't See this Anymore - Round 2

Time for another round of photos from yesteryear under the theme of "you don't see this anymore" with the usual addition of snarky VE comments...

Nothing like a fun day with KKK at the fair...

You just never see aligators at the petting zoo anymore...

Honestly, I can't think of a single reason why these boat shoes aren't still on the market...

Donkeys as backpacks fell out of favor with all the animal rights activists...

Gas mask dinner parties didn't quite catch on.  They would come in handy for chilli feeds...

Alas, the only truly one-size-fits-all outfit is no longer available in retail...

Ice cube masks for hangovers sort of fell out of favor about the same time ice cube trays did...

And when was the last time you saw a doggie movie theater in your town?

Somewhere along the line knife throwing at children became politically incorrect...

Believe it or not, this was actually Southern California circa 1928.  Nobody seems to want to just ignore the oil companies exploiting our land anymore....

It is funny but I remember as a child when we used to see all those oil pumps in Long Beach all the time. They were everywhere. And are you sure that the ice cube mask is not from the Outer Limits or the Twilight Zone?

Love the doggie theater though.

God bless.

Ah, the good old days! Where did you find these pictures? They’re incredible – big smiles here. Except for the KKK one – I’d like to think a major ferris wheel malfunction/disaster took place shortly after the picture was taken.

Where did you find that pic ofme on the gator? I was sure my mom burned it!

mrsupole - I just can't believe that's California. Guess they took all the oil and left...

beth - The gnomes have a way of finding the unusual and ridiculous...

sybil - Under rocks...weird looking rocks...

reforminggeek - Yes, I'm sure after 625 days above 100 in Texas it might be quite popular...

lime - I think I can accommodate that...I want to make sure my medical benefits are paid up though...

gab - Relatives have a way of giving the gnomes what they seek for the right monetary motivation...
