READIN' LIKE IT'S 1974

PRINCE PHILIP -- A local hospital has appealed for donations of reading materials after an x-ray patient discovered a 29-year-old magazine in the waiting room.

As it turns out, it was a scam perpetrated by the patient. The doctor could see right through him. (polaris75@aol.com)

Better check the dates on those little milk cartons in the cafeteria, too. (ukkfayooyay@aol.com)

Coincidentally, the fashions shown in this 29-year-old issue of Cosmopolitan are the current hot trends for this year. (TenaciousFiend@yahoo.com)

The 1974 German language edition of Playboy, containing an interview with the then relatively unknown Arnold Schwarzenegger, was recently sold on eBay to one G. Davis of California for over $50,000. (jenalt2001@yahoo.com)

I was so moved by their plight that I immediately shipped them my 15 year old copies of popular mechanics. No need to thank me, the look on their faces was thanks enough. (Truckerex@wmconnect.com)

It was a "PC Weekly" whose cover story touted "The New Portable IBM Computer -- Now Only Twice the Size of an American Tourister Suitcase!" (junkmailmagnet42@aol.com)

Unfortunately, all of the copies of Playgirl with the nude spread of Brendan Fraser were already taken by some blonde woman... (MooseSpeak@earthlink.net)

...Yeah, well - wait till Brendan catches a glimpse of that "Women of Humormeonline" spread...Course, with my luck, he'll just go for Cad.

Nothing X-Rayted, please! (HerzogVon@aol.com)

Second on the list of "things to update" was the hospital's x-ray machine, which consists of holding a flashlight to the patient's chest in a dimly lit room. (razcactus@netzero.com)

29 years is only half the shelf-life of a National Geographic magazine. (archerjoe@hotmail.com)

I have about 12,000 entries of spam no older than 20 days. They're welcome to 'em. (laugh@starpower.net)

Maybe they keep it around to mess with the heads of people who just came out of a coma! (MrglsJon@aol.com)

The heck with the magazine.....I wonder how much today's winner, iRonni@msn.com, could have made selling THIS picture on eBay?

This was actually discovered underneath a rusty, cobwebby wheel chair in which was discovered the desiccated body of Jimmy Hoffa. Ironically, the number on the ticket he was holding was due up next. (iRonni@msn.com)
