You Don't See this Anymore

You know what?  I think it's time to spend a week or so with some visual humor here at Fantastical Nonsense.  I've sent the gnomes scouring the universe for an assignment.

Everyone tends to think that things in the world are messed up more than ever.  Well...they probably are but that doesn't mean they weren't messed up back in the "good old days" too.

And to prove my point, here's a series of visual photos from yesteryear under the theme of "you don't see this anymore..."

Nazi women's hocky players?  And you thought female mud wrestling was politically incorrect...

Sadly the portable cigarette ash tray has fallen out of favor in society.  I think now you have to have it 10 feet from your body...

Thanks to organizations like PETA you can't just employ your cat as your babysitter while you go out partying.

And to add insult to injury, outside window baby cages aren't allowed in most HOAs...

We have plenty of Teddy Bears but very few good old fashioned bear chairs...

Wheel riding just isn't as popular once fenders arrived...

The "See Saw" method of artilary fire is rarely used anymore...

And when was the last time YOU saw an Arbor Society member out in a hurricane saving the baby trees?

Raccoons just aren't as popular a pet anymore...

I don't know how it happened but Goat slides somehow slipped quietly out of popularity...

It has been a while since I have been here. Tonight was a treat!!! But, I do think that since they have done away with baby cages,
I might have to invent some teenager cages. I am almost positive they would be a hit!

Ok that is it! First thing tomorrow I'm building a Goat Slide

Man, I'd hate to see how they figured out the weight limit for the baby cages.
That personal, portable ashtray is really pretty flipping sweet.

Reminds me of a poem by my father:

I took my auntie riding
In a cold and windy breeze.
I put her in the rumble seat
And watched my auntie freeze.

OH, VE!

What a bunch of lovely ladies on that hockey team.

I'd like one of those baby cages. Cat would love it. Cat would love to tease the baby.

These are fabulous! (Stole) sent the one of the baby in a cage to a woman I know who is expecting her first child – and who lives in a condo!

As for that bear chair…uh-uh…no way…ain’t happening…ever… ;)

I think those women would win a game just because the other team ran away out of fear. And you know possums make better pet than raccoons. I mean because a possum at least just freezes when you try to pet them while the raccoon runs away.

And all babies should be in a cage until they become adults, at least that what my cats tell me when they feel like talking.

God bless.
