Bonjour, Wednesday! Bonjour, WTF!
Before there was youtube, people learned how to make things by reading books like the Family Creative Workshop 24 volume set. (1976)
Things such as Candy Wreaths:
And Pulley Cable Glides:
Nothing says “Country” like cufflinks and a director’s chair in a wheat field.
Trim Twist was a 1968 exercise fad where CEO’s were expected to stand on a 1 foot square lazy Susan and twist.
This one unfortunately warped and no longer twisted.
But if it still worked, a boss and his secretary could twist all day to this kind of music:
Hello clown on stilts holding a puppy in a matching hat.
This beautiful bride was 3 feet tall and nineteen dollars. Priciest thing in the store – you can get a new couch at goodwill for less than that.
Last but not least, a couple of Jesuses. Jesus’s blond phase (1942).
And a charcoal drawing of windblown rockstar Jesus.
As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.
