Brainy Brunch Blue Plate Special #1

As I have been perusing the various adorably quirky and wonderfully wacky vintage finds online, I keep finding myself drawn to the egg cups.  I mean seriously.  You could do a whole series of posts on just the ones where you scoop your egg out of the top of someone's head.  So, you know what?  I've decided to do just that.  I will try each Sunday to feature a "new" delightfully delectable Brainy Brunch Blue Plate Special.  SO...
Without any more ado...
Here is the inaugural special!

This One Speaks For Itself

From the listing:

According to Peg Bracken on 'When not to make love':
"No man who calls his wife 'Mother' or 'Fats' all day can justifiably expect a bonfire that night -- or as Henry Fielding put it, 'a warm partaker of the genial bed.
From the author of 'The I Hate to Cook Book', comes a book that pushes the boundaries where previous etiquette books failed to go. Filled with pearls of wisdom from Peg Bracken and illustrations by Hilary Knight. Harcourt, Brace & World, Inc. New York, NY. Copyright 1964.

Those Clowns in Washington Are at It Again!

It's bad enough that they act like clowns but going around smelling of whiskey is a bit much?

You've no doubt heard of Rudolph the reindeer and Dominick the Donkey, now it is time to introduce you to Doug the Christmas Bug.  Sure to become a Christmas classic.  He just needs a carol.

Double the Elephants, Double the Fun

I couldn't pick just one caption on this one so I thought I'd share a couple. Feel free to contribute your own.

  1. One purl, two purl, three purl, hurl.
  2. You know what's worse than two drunk pink elephants? Two drunk pink elephants holding sharp pointed objects. Get my point?
  3. Well, when you are asked how you made your sweater at least you'll have a good story.

Personally I think this is the right appoach to knitting. Or just about anything else for that matter.
