Historical photos #40

Back then this sort of thing was considered cute. Now we would just say, “Who’s the pervert in the giraffe suit?”  Our cynicism and jadedness is rawther ugly.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    How many people had previously worn that suit on a hot summer day before he had to don it? I am assuming that he would have HAD to don it. Then, there are the visibility problems. A granddaughter was terrified by Big Bird at an early birthday party, and BB couldn’t have been happy either, especially as he banged into a wall as he tried to find his way out the door. I can only imagine the number of Mercedes he t-boned on the way home.

      that is funny. before clowns went out of business, I would sometimes see one driving on the highway and it freaked me out- he was probably driving to his clowning job. I also saw a disgraceful Santa Claus Central Park who had potty mouth.

    Sadly, an animal so domesticated that he can’t be returned to the wild.
