I Know 1972 Was A Long Time Ago BUT

Hi Apron Goddesses!

Let's jump in the way back machine once again for a marvelous photo of two gentlemen wearing aprons from 1972 out of McCalls Needleworks and Crafts.

I am a staunch radical crazy apron supporter BUT, what were they thinking???

I was in hysterics reading the real comments people wrote below this picture on Flickr. You could make up your own tag line but I am trying to keep this site mostly clean.


Here's my take...

Guy on right, "Yeah, I think I'm going to start a new chain gang but we will all wear aprons instead of gold. That's a good idea right?"

Guy on left, "Are you kidding me? Some body is going to seriously kick your ass. Dude...are you ready? Wonder Twin Powers-Activate!"

Guy on right, "Have you been smoking something without me?"

Guy on left, "No, but I put something special in the hot dogs."

Sorry, I have to stop. But this picture writes it self. There are so many directions to go...so little time. I hope you get as good a laugh from this photo as I did.

oh my gracious.. i actually *gasped* when i saw this picture! was it in humor... or horror? ;)

another apron in the "what were they thinking" category are the bell-bottom *pants* aprons of similar vintage. i actually have a pattern for making a matching his'n'hers set.
fondue, anyone?

Persuaded said...

ok.. i'm sorry to clog up your comments and all, but i went to read the "real comments"... bwwwaaaah!
my stomach is hurting and i woke up my son. HA! HA! HA!

i know a chubby lil old Christian lady such as myself shouldn't be laughing at such things, but oh-me-oh-my that was *hilarious!!*
i'll be foolishly laughing to myself all day over this;)

Jennifer said...

My eyes, my eyes!! ROFL!!

Sara said...

LOL OH MY! hahahahaah!

Ty-Anna said...

I couldn't stop giggling...funny :-)

Julia said...

I was totally laughing for 10 minutes when I saw that and then while I wrote up the post broke into fits of giggles too. I just could not pass up this picture!

I am so glad there is a universal appeal in it's humor.

MsSnarkyPants said...

OMMMMMMMMG...Wow...Ummm...

Yeah I'm with the woman on the "real comments" who made note about the fact that the one man is blowing on the wiener before placing it in the other mans bun...I'm just sayin...

What the heck was that an advertisement for!?!?!?

Dr. Lauren said...

Are these guys really wearing these aprons? lol Awe, old commercials, how I miss them so.

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

It's just not right! And the fact that Dude Right is holding a hot dog bun and Dude Left is every so carefully BLOWING on a hot dog... I just won't go there. IF I start I will not be able to stop. Plus, I don't think the picture really needs any caption. A picture is worth a thousand words, that's for sure!

Grand Pooba said...

Okay I can't tell if the guy on the right is wearing an apron or a gold chain.

the ungourmet said...

The one on the right reminds me a little of a Hostess Cupcake!

That is such a riot! I don't think we would ever see anything like this now! -Unless it was a joke.

Sweet Mama Jones said...

OK, for the record I was gonna be all mad because you were' dissin' 1972. Some of us may or may not have been born that year and we may or may not think I'm, I mean, we're, that old. BUT I forgive you since the pics are hilarious & your words are perfection! LOVE IT! Too funny. ;)

Julia said...

Sweet Mama Jones!!!! I must admit to being born in 1971. EEEKKKK!!

Olde Dame Penniwig said...

I can't even laugh. That image is just SO INSANE and to think I lived through the 70's, but evidently not unscathed. That image threatens my sobriety.

Oh Julia, you're just a baby, born in 1971!!! Babies having babies...

Fine Hand said...

This picture is hilarious! Love it!

mrsb said...

Holy Moses! That is too funny!

Mommy Gourmet said...

Hey at least there were some men in the kitchen!

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Hahaha!!! I can't even think straight after reading/seeing this. Almost makes me cringe.

It is 11:00 at night and I am in my office by myself.My office is next to my bedroom were my husband is trying to sleep. I just came to the pic of the two guys in the lovely aprons. My LOL woke up my husband, He yells, "what the h-- are you laughing at" I say, "two hilarious looking guys go back to sleep" The gold chain is one ugly apron.
