more monkey business
Like the monkey, Blair was also a frequent comic book advertiser well into the 70s, with "Tim Newcomer" as their usual saleskid. Alas, no further information on them.
Permagon was only one of a wide variety of oddball products Honor House sold in magazines. If you didn't want a hair zapper, how about a personal nuclear sub? Also, note how the object the scantily-clad model is holding in the closeup looks like a grease/mark-up pencil. Could be they lost the zapper for the shot and had to borrow the closest substitute from the paste-up artist nearby. It is also possible that she is wearing one of the many wigs for sale in this magazine.
Among the "real stories" in this hard-hitting issue:
* Our Housewife "Tea Parties" Were Marijuana Binges
* Why Couldn't My Daughter-in-Law Died Instead of My Son
* My Ex-Lover Walked Back Into My Life
* For Two Weeks Each Year I Was Another Man's Mistress
* I Can't Be A Virgin For More Than One Hour
Remember: give generously this season to the Guelph Rent-a-Monkey Fund.
