Boob McNutt

I can't stop looking at this picture from the always awesome Shorpy: The 100-Year-Old Photo Blog. Not one of the kids at this 1922 birthday party (with the possibility of "Ham Gravy") seems pleased with the personalized cartoon hats little Johnny's mom made for them. The ungrateful bastards! Full-size version is here.

this is so fantastic! gloomy gus is my favorite. for some reason, it brings to mind sour death balls, which i love.

I love Shorpy. And poor Boob McNutt, who, if alive, is probably just as humiliated 86 years later.

I think Ham Gravy made the hats, that sinister little vixen!

I had never seen Sour Death Balls, that was great. And the photo blog is great, too. Poor Toots.
