Two fine pieces of vintage ephemera from Mostly Forbidden Zone: A hotdog with the head of a chicken, and one heck of a manly garter for boys.
Socks and stockings of the day had no elastic. Thus, mens’ (and boys’) garters to hold them up.
Could the hot dog ad be a little more phallic? My inner child isn’t chuckling hard enough.
I too am waiting for a ‘choking the chicken’ joke response.
I was thinking more ‘cockdog’ as a marketing name and just started laughing.
“Cock of the Walk” was rejected as a brand name.
Whatever you do don’t go around cross-gartered. Malvolio learned that the hard way.
