Ripleys Believe It Or Not Ripley's Believe It Or Not was a regular feature in newspapers for many decades. Its creator, Robert Ripley, hoped to be a professional baseball player but an arm injury ended that dream. Instead, Ripley decided to write about sports. He compiled some odd sports facts and presented them in cartoon form. Ripley intended to call it Champs & Chumps, but settled on Believe It Or Not so he could go beyond sports. His first cartoon panel premiered in the New York Globe on December 19, 1918. At one point, there were 80 million loyal readers of Believe It Or Not in daily newspapers. Much of Ripley's research was done by Norbert Pearlroth. For 52 years, Pearlroth spent 10 hours per day, six days a week in the New York Public Library searching for obscure facts and trivia for Ripley's cartoons!

Bob Hope Classic Line Here's a clip of Bob Hope in the movie "The Ghost Breakers," where he says what is considered to be one of his funniest lines ever. Politically sensitive folk beware; he knocks democrats. Keep in mind, however, that politically parties represented an entirely different set of beliefs in the 1940s. That said, it is interesting to see a movie from 1940 crack a joke about democrats when it is more commonplace in today's films to see the same jokes said about republicans.

Douglas MacArthur Life Magazine The cover of the January 10, 1964 issue of Life magazine featured retired general Douglas MacArthur whose memoirs were about to be serialized in that publication. (MacArthur died later that same year.) I posted this for two reasons: I've always found MacArthur to be a fascinating character and January 10, 1964 was the day I was born!

Vintage Syphilis Ad This vintage public service announcement was aimed at Second World War servicemen. Never forget a 'pickup girl' might be a carrier of syphilis even though she looks clean.

Public Information Film In the 70's there were a plethora of these type of public information films, of which I think is one of the best. It doesn't preach to you, it just give s you a child's eye perspective on road safety with a little help of subtle humour.

Billy Ripken Baseball Card Obscenity Fleer's 1989 baseball card of Billy Ripken of the Baltimore Orioles had an unusual feature: an obscenity on the handle of his bat. For years Ripken blamed a playful teammate for scribbling the naughty message on his bat just before the photo was taken. In 2009 Ripken fessed up, saying he had written the message on his batting practice bat to distinguish it from his game bats. He had just finished taking BP at Fenway Park when the Fleer photographer snapped this photo. When this error became public knowledge, Fleer reissued Ripken's card several different times, with the offending message blacked out or obscured in a different manner. Predictably, the original 'error card' is much in demand by collectors.

Clara Bow on the Beach Widely regarded as the most beautiful movie actress of the 1920s, Clara Bow poses on a beach in a swimsuit for a publicity photo. I'm big on nostalgia, but I think I prefer Kathy Ireland's 1989 SI cover photo to this. Call me fickle.

Ironic Steve Garvey SI Cover 'Is Steve Garvey Really Too Good To Be True?' asked the cover of Sports Illustrated in its 1982 baseball preview issue. Garvey, the Los Angeles Dodgers' popular first baseman, had spent years carefully cultivating a squeaky clean image that abruptly disintegrated the following year. He and wife Cyndy endured a scandalous public divorce in which Garvey's trysts with other women were exposed. Must have been that SI cover jinx!
