    The jumping wolverines were particularly bad that year.

    Well, Dick. I've never reported anybody in my three years on the HAMB, but I think that fella doesn't understand the HAMB rules. For one, no name-calling. This HAMB thread is a place for objective commentary about VINTAGE subjects, as they WERE, not as issues stand in 2011. I feel it was a cheap shot.

    As far as I am concerned, it's just like people complaining about pictures of dead horses during the 1906 earthquake. Silly but, moreover, simply an inappropriate, socio-political interjection into an otherwise objective and respectful thread of conversation about HISTORY, not the way things stand in 2011.

    Now, Boys.....everyone calm down. THis is NOT a forum for your personal beliefs regarding the moral validity of hunting. Especially when the game is not an elephant. I hear that elephants are not very tasty or tender. So, if you do not consume any meat products, good for you. But, if you enjoy a steak or burger....where do think that meat comes from? Answer...."Uh, the supermarket".
    Jeesh!!
    Let's all chill out and get back to the subject....

    As you say, FlatheadGuy, that was my point. We don't need people popping up with cheap shots out of the blue. If they familiarize themselves with HAMB rules -- and this thread from Page 1 --they might be in tune. Nobody disses anybody, except to correct an incorrect statement about engines, trannies, etc.

    Thanks FlatheadGuy. Sorry for losing my temper. BACK to the regular buisiness of cool old vintage material.

    Book illustrations thanks to aelphbet.


    Ever wonder what Dr. Seuss did BEFORE writing all of those
    famous and cleverly worded children's books?:confused: Well, in 1939
    his Seven Lady Godivas was aimed at adult readers and
    flopped miserably. That his books often tended to wind around
    socio-political messages seems rather more obvious than, say,
    Louis Carroll's earlier work (which, I think, probably served as
    one inspiration for Seuss' material).;) That his books contained
    criticism of the adult world and its philosophical underpinnings
    never seemed to bother parents, especially those of a liberal
    bent. So, down on adults, the good doctor made his fortunes
    writing and drawing for the kids. Wikipedia states that a well-
    known Seuss barb was, "Adults are obsolete children, and to
    hell with them." :rolleyes:
