Post a Joke

Light Bulby Baby

The portable tape recorder was the thing to have at 12 years old. We would record stories, laughing and of course Dial A Joke. I think it cost our folks about 10 cents a phone call back in the early 70s. The jokes were always stupid, funny and a little nasty. This is Post a Joke via Flopside comics.

Mr. Fuck felt it was important to bring back the nasty humor.

Mr. Shit did not think the joke was funny at all.

Mr. Crap got a big smile on his face.

The rest of the Flopside Comics family were too busy watching Clint Eastwood films to care much…

Tape recorder #1 shit worker at Flipside Fanzine

This is one of my favorite pictures taken by Al Flipside. Why it is so interesting to me?, because I am holding the tape recorder that was responsible for recording all the interviews  we did at Flipside,  at least when I was there. Also I am wearing my PIL pants… I loved those pants… DIY silk screening days… and then there is Wimpy’s face… brings chills to my spine !
