Controls that WORK! As Opposed to...

Contributor Robert Gilles gives us another couple of head-scratchers, this time courtesy of  Archie Giant Series #181:

Yeah, Jughead, we can see that.  I can also see that you're laying back and reading a publication with images of your best friend.  What I'm not seeing is what you're doing with your right hand there.

Okay, if you're offended by that one, blame Robert.  And hey!  Here's a little something for the kids!

It fires rockets and torpedoes?  And this is for children?  As cool as I would consider it to be as a child, I have to admit... I don't see any reference in the ad that this thing is actually fake (you can engage in "imaginative play" about driving while sitting behind the steering wheel of a real car).  And if they're able to ship it around for 75 cents, I think the Department of Defense should be contracting with these people.  Right after the ATF asks them why they're selling weaponry to children.

Good ones, Robert!  Thanks!

Tomorrow, we look at the third issue of the Golden Age Blue Beetle.  And if the cover is any indication:

We can look forward to squirt gun fights!  Pew! Pew!

See you tomorrow!

Have you seen the actual Polaris Sub toy? Here's one link (of many) to an article with a photo of the real thing. Scroll down about halfway.

Hadn't seen it, Smurf! Cool!

Dammit! Now I can't unsee that odd smirk Jughead has on his face as he does something unseen with his right hand.
