LAFF. A rag with that title would seem tailor made for the Giggles For Guzzlers treatment. However, for a seventy-six page magazine the gags are somewhat scarce. But that's okay, because here at GFG central, we skip straight to the good parts. No, not the babes, the laffs! These are from the Sept, 1959 issue of LAFF. That's over fifty years old! Holy shit!

This week, a short-but-sweet hour-ish long podcast wherein the gang shows up, cracks wise, and then splits.
Also, we revisit that time Jimmy Ether and I flipped out on menthol sticks.
And I talk a little bit about this movie:
You should see it!
Anyway, bite-sized fun!
Goodbye song by Bobby McClure See you next week!
Making it's debut on the MAG Follies 3, Over Sexteen was something of a hit with the Sleazegrinder. From the jolly organ, to the dopey jokes, Over Sexteen has endeared itself to the MAG Follies crew like few have.
With that in mind, the Giggles For Guzzlers staff have compiled not just the first Over Sexteen album, but also some choice cuts from the first volume of Over Sexteen. Relish and enjoy!
Here are a few not-so-funny gags from the 1951 compilation, Dear Sir:. Most of these gags wouldn't seem out of place in a Readers Digest. It's this kind of tame, conservative humor that was more the rule, than the exception at the time.
A couple weeks ago, I saw a so-so comedy from 1967 calledDivorce American Style. It starred Dick Van Dyke and Debbie Reynolds as a married couple on the skids who try breaking up and dating, only to find that other people make them even more miserable.
I could take or leave the flick, but halfway through, there's a showstopping number featuring "The Hip Hypnotist", Miss Pat Collins. She's got a giant pile of blonde hair and space-lady make-up and she's completely f**kin' awesome.
Who was this amazing creature?
Turns out she was a pretty well-known commodity in the 60's and 70's, appearing in several films and plenty of TV shows, including Honey West,Hollywood Squares, What's My Line, Playboy After Dark, and The Lucy Show.
She also ran her own club in Hollywood, where she would entertain rubes and royalty alike with her unique blend of laffs and hypno-hijinks.
Naturally, given the era, she also released a couple of vanity LPs: Turn On! and Sleep With Pat Collins.
Pat kept things rolling in the 80's, tossed a little self-help mumbo jumbo into the mix, and basically stayed groovy until she died from a stroke at the way-too-young age of 62 in 1997. Luckily, she left behind a sizable body of work, so we may gawk and giggle at her hypno-hokum for decades to come.
