Super Boobs!

Posted by Jenny in Grab Bag | 9 Comments

When I was at the “Eclectic Vintage Freakout” sale in Berkeley last Saturday, I came across something that really made me laugh. It made the sellers laugh, too, but they were ready to get it out of their house. It was only a quarter, but I decided not to buy it, asking instead if I could just take a picture. They said sure — although they did try to convince me that I really wanted it. I told them I’d give them 50 cents to take the picture and not bring it home, but kindly they didn’t make me pay up.

I am having a teensy bit of regret at leaving it behind, but I think just having the picture is really good enough.

Super Boobs

It’s not just the wacky gag-gift nature of this item that cracks me up. That hair! That pose! That wacky copywriting! Ah, what a fine piece of ’80s debris. I didn’t take it out of the box, but I think it’s basically some kind of two-balloon apparatus that you can inflate on demand.

My almost-sincere apologies to anyone who ended up here because they were looking for real super boobs.

    You forgot the delightful font! I suspect the super boobs will travel from garage sale to garage sale, never to be worn by anyone!

    Wait – so, the pimp book AND the boobs were at the same sale? Damn, I wish we had sales like that around here! I just can’t believe that you passed up those boobs for a quarter. They would have made the perfect Christmas gift for anyone in my family.

    I so would have bought Super Boobs. Just to haul it out at parties and wave it under my friends faces and die laughing.

    will someone, anyone please mention that “ahem” models hairstyle!? dear god, how did we survive the eighties?

  5. Jenny says:

    Yes – I love the delightful font!

    I still only sort of regret not buying it. Especially after I realized that my checked baggage had that little “we searched your bags” card in it when I got off the plane – can you imagine the look on some TSA inspector’s face when they came across Super Boobs?!

    I like the “nothing kinky, please” disclosure.
