N. p., ca. 1940s?

The raw materials for a budding Gerson Legman, a substantial sampling of mid-century tabooóa rough catalog of subject groupings found here include obsessions with womenís breasts (three examples), inappropriate sexual contact or misconduct (four, of which two are alcohol-related), scatological themes (two), castration anxiety (threeóone rabbinical), inappropriate behavior on the part of Santa Claus (three), male potency (two, not counting one included in the Santa Claus category previous), plus various examples of tasteless wit partaking in general of innuendo to some degree of any of the subjects noted above, etc. One piece (ìTypes of Girls in the Powder Roomî) with the faint violet ink stamp for Hartmanís Y Service Station in Norwalk, Ohio at the head of the page, suggesting the expected audience for this material.
