there was no such thing as a middle school in the 60s

This. I used the term "middle school" in my post so as not to confound the millennials on the board.


Well I was in "grammar" school and off the top of my head right now--

Try the beans,
They were prepared last Friday and
The meat's tough as a mule,
The soup is cold,
The bread's got mold,
(yecch!)
Anything beats our lunchroom at school!

Oy they were a baaaaaaad influence big grin

I found an old Mad Magazine and gave it a read.

It was the 2001: A Space Odyssey issue.

What do you think they changed the main characters names (Bowman and Poole) to? (Remember, this was aimed at pre-teen boys.)

I read a few issues back in the 80s. Lot of times I would thumb through the newest issue in the grocery stores waiting for my mom and dad. Anyone ever owned the board game? You try to lose as much money as you can to win.

Not only do them young whippersnappers on the board not know what "grammar school" was -- they don't even know what grammar is! (or was)...

I wish I'd bought the soft covers of, Mad About The Sixties, Mad About TV & Mad About The Movies.

I have them now, just a case of regularly checking eBay for a decent price.

Glad I was in grammar school in the 60s. I ain't got no bad grammar habits! My grammar's real good!

Posh sod! I was at secondary school in the 60s, not quite bright enough for a grammar (in fact as thick as a boarding house sandwich), but they learned me well.

I found the TOWERING INFERNO issue.

Not too many names got used in the Mad version. Here's the only ones; see if you can guess the Mad versions:

THE TOWERING INFERNO

Doug Roberts [played by Paul Newman]

O'Halloran [played by Steve McQueen]
