Can somebody help me out please? Bill May 16 2018 at 5:05 am One of the things silly putty was used for was rolling out into a pancake and sumushing it onto a color cartoon printed on newsprint. There’s enough ink on the page to be transferred to the surface of the silly putty that when the silly putty was removed from the newspaper, the image was transferred to the surface of the silly putty. You then had a reverse image of the comic on the putty. Why a backwards image of the cartoon is significant I’m not sure. This song might explain it best. https://youtu.be/d8MnyLI7blM PaulS May 16 2018 at 7:15 am Because then you could stretch and distort the image for more entertainment. Sheesh… 😉 Fronk! May 16 2018 at 10:25 am Aha! Of course!! Thank you, I had forgotten about that property of Silly Putty… Thanks for helping out an ageing, forgetful Baby Boomer! Bill G May 16 2018 at 5:13 am One feature of Silly Putty is that when pressed down onto newsprint, and I don’t recall what else, it creates a copy of the print, or the comics, on the surface of the silly putty when it’s peeled back off. (And Chris took me a LONG way back for that memory!) Fronk! May 16 2018 at 10:24 am Thank you! Pamela May 16 2018 at 12:35 am Did Hillary get any of that mixture Javier created? Might explain why some days she looks fresh… Vince May 16 2018 at 1:29 am Applied with broad and narrow putty knives. Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of Deplorable! May 16 2018 at 8:22 am Thats not silly putty, thats spackle. Interventor May 16 2018 at 9:39 am Spackle. epilitimus May 16 2018 at 10:47 pm You mean crack spackle; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yICoZNmTCo She uses the Oprah size. Ozymandius May 16 2018 at 1:49 am That’s because of a pact she made with Satan armedandsafe May 16 2018 at 1:53 am I’d be surprised if even Satan would trust Hillary. John May 16 2018 at 3:25 pm I sometimes wonder of Hillary saw “Death Becomes Her” and then had a talk with her mentor. He thought it was a hoot. Bill May 16 2018 at 4:50 am To quote the Howie Carr Show. “Ha.” “Ha, HA Ha.” Rick May 16 2018 at 5:20 am That’s so Meta … Cat Hat May 16 2018 at 5:44 am you probably have to be at least 60 years old to get the punchline. the image could be transferred from the Silly Putty by pressing it onto another piece of paper. you could also distort the image by stretching the Silly Putty. didn’t realize Mr. Muir was that old. Chris Muir May 16 2018 at 10:32 am I am 60! JSStryker May 16 2018 at 10:35 am We are the same age Chris! Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of deplorable! May 16 2018 at 5:34 pm Nah, you’re 30, with 30 years experience! Old Codger May 16 2018 at 7:35 pm Stripling! August will see me 67 and married 46 years. JTC May 16 2018 at 10:32 pm Late bloomer! 65 in Aug, married 47. Interventor May 16 2018 at 11:26 pm 71, young whippersnappers! Deplorable B Woodman May 16 2018 at 5:59 am At least it’s not as permanent on R200’s skin as the impression left behind on the Nazi weasel’s hand in the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark” Fronk! May 16 2018 at 10:26 am Good point! JTC May 16 2018 at 10:39 am Doesn’t work worth a shit…I have splotched silly putty all over my screen multiple times and it didn’t pick up one single DBD boobeh… Bill May 16 2018 at 11:27 am Great point. If so, you could only make them bigger! Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of deplorable! May 16 2018 at 1:19 pm Oh good, I’m not the only one… Deplorable B Woodman May 16 2018 at 11:41 pm Reminds me of the blonde secretary…..how do we know she’s blonde? From the whiteout all over her computer monitor. As well as being older than dirt, that joke has SO much unPC……sexist, “abelist”, stereotype,….did I forget anything? NotYetInACamp May 17 2018 at 12:05 am Anti-blonde. DonS May 16 2018 at 11:19 am Thanks for all the links to cool stuff (Bill, and all y’all)… you broaden my cultural horizons every time! Never heard of the Geezenslaw Brothers, but now I have… ’nuff said, LOL! Here’s a song I found down that rabbit hole you might enjoy: “I think my dog’s a Democrat…” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3VLqLLWxbQ BTW, today my personal odometer rolled over 65… whoohoo! My three brothers and I grew up without a TV in the house, so the Sunday funnies were a high point in our entertainment landscape. Silly Putty showed up in our Christmas stockings one year, as did ping pong ball guns; fun times! Bill May 16 2018 at 11:30 am Here’s another goodie. Sammy Allread the mandolin player died this last week. https://youtu.be/0NR8no4Fp5Y JTC May 16 2018 at 2:25 pm DonS, congrats and happy b-day! My six-five moment comes in August. BTW, that whole Sexagenarian thing is a cruel hoax. 🙁 Pamela May 16 2018 at 11:41 am They still have Funny Pages out there somewhere…. JackDeth72 May 16 2018 at 3:55 pm Nice Blast From The Past, chris. And Wham-O \’s original Silly Putty and Super Balls are still available through Bed Bath & Beyond and numerous home aid and novelty catalogs. Kafiroon May 16 2018 at 10:52 pm Catalogs. Those shiny pages things next to the hole in the outhouse. And never mind how old I might be. Interventor May 16 2018 at 11:29 pm Wham-O is still around. Henry May 19 2018 at 2:18 pm Wow! I never realized that Silly Putty was a Wham-O product. I always thought their blockbuster entry into the market was the Frisbee. I still have the one my folks bought me in 1960, with years of play scuffs on it. JTC May 16 2018 at 7:41 pm “…catalogs.” That anything like this “comics section” Damon speaks of? 😉 Reply Comment Name * Email * Website This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
