Fido & Fifi

Fido: “It’s time to go, but she isn’t anywhere near ready. That Chihuahua treats ME like a dog. Maybe I should go. Hard to compete with a bubble bath, chocolate candy, a cocktail, and a page turner.”
Fifi: “What does a girl have to do to get a little attention? Why does Fido still have his clothes on? That’s one oblivious Chihuahua!”

To The Moon, Alice! and more Politically Incorrect Art

Back in the 50’s women were still treated as chattel by many men in the US.  Sexism was common in advertising and on television.  One line that sticks in my head from Jackie Gleason’s show The Honeymooners was from the character he played, Ralph Kramden.  Ralph would shake his fist at his wife Alice and say “to the moon, Alice”.  We’ve come a long way since then.
