Who knew? And here all these decades we've feared nuclear fallout for nothing!

Well, this one doesn't necessarily go in the "unbelievable" category, but I'll stick here since I have a question about it. It's a TWA (the defunct Transworld Airlines, that is) on-board meal from the '50's. It actually doesn't look that bad, but: what is the mysterious substance in the round container aside the peas and potatoes that is apparently functioning as the entree, I wonder?

I think it's a horribly drawn chicken leg or a piece of pork in a bowl. Very unappetizing looking, that's for sure.
Ok second thought, maybe it's soup. :lol:

It looks like something's hind quarters floating in barbeque sauce with mushrooms on top. :( (I should have waited to finish my lunch before making this post. :? ) Yes, I guess it's soup of some kind. Funny, I had assumed this was a photo, but I guess it is a painting now that I look more closely.

This kid is feeding a GIRAFFE the cough medicine! Oh my! 😂 I saw this on Twitter, and when I tried to research it, I saw it labeled as 1920s. Hard to tell, though!

:D That's an interesting one.

Since "licorice" is pronounced with an "sh" at the end, I wonder if you say "licori-sheen" or licori-seen. Just asking. :) The first way sounds awkward, and the second way too much like "kerosene".
