Innocence is sexy. But not if she looks like she's EIGHT!!!
Uh...there is only one guy who has both hands visible, and he seems to be having way too much fun.
I am thinking 1960 or so, huh?
Today, he'd have a harrassment suit slapped on him so fast, it'd make his head spin.
If you look at the fine print on the cola ad, it reads "Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during that early, formative period have a much better chance of gaining acceptance and 'fitting in' during those awkward pre-teen and teenage years. So, do yourself a favor, do your child a favor. Start them on a strict regimen of sodas and other surgary carbonated beverages right now, for a lifetime of guaranteed happiness." The study was probably done by the Soda Pop Board of America along with the National Dentists association.

And there's "Have You Heard the Word"with a snockered Maurice Gibb practically channeling John Lennon.
The boozily Beatlesque result somehow found release, evidently without the permission of the principals, in 1970 as a single on the tiny U.K. label Beacon Records, with this one-off congregation identified as The Fut. Did they do a good job? Just ask the bootleggers, who have placed the track on countless Beatles boots, hoodwinking many a rabid Fab Four obsessive.
Again, did they do a good job? Just ask Yoko Ono, who in 1985 attempted to register "Have You Heard the Word" as a John Lennon composition.
If this is your cup of tea as much as it is mine, I recommend the Bee Gees' lysergically-fortified Bee Gees' 1st, their first album, remastered and released on the Rhino label, which has "In My Own Time" on it. Link
Thanks Marty. Just for being a baseball geek that went to school in University City. Just for being a guy who would openly and publicly admit that you had the best job in America; Public and Media Relations director for the Cardinals. And for being one of the easiest and kindest guys ever to deal with. I first met Marty in 1985 when I requested my first tickets as a St. Louis resident and one time big shot. He never forgot me and rarely failed in providing a request to see the Cardinals. He had every promotional schwag he had ever been involved with. That's decades of stuff. No one in this city had anything less than a profound affection and respect for the unflappable one. "No sweat". Thanks again Marty for being one of the truly real good guys. See ya down the road. Done too soon at 59.I am not much of a Rams fan. I think the teams that they put on the field from 1999-2003 will be remembered as some of the best ever but I just don't have an emotional tie to this team. I thought it was a crappy deal that brought the Rams here. We get a team but someone loses theirs? Hardly seems fair. Georgia inherited the team from her late husband, one of seven. The President of the team lives in LA, doesn't spend any time in St. Louis and right now, they suck. But she brought them here and for a few magical years, the Dome (one of the worst places in the world to see a game) was rocking. It's not now. So, I appreciate it. I hope I live to be 80.
