If there is a joke here, you guys will point it out.
What do you suppose made them decide to live there?
It's not quite right for the joke.
The car should have a Fertile flag.
Maybe there's a simple answer to this:
The car looks like a '12. Nice shiny brass, nice shiny paint. Car looks pretty new. But black tires ? I thought black tires came later.
Also, note rope wrapped around rear tires. Looks like a nice warm day. Where's the snow ?
This is indeed .... a rare find.
One of the first print campaign images for " Climax Control ".
" Proximity Prevents Procreaction " and as you can see these fine Ladies are at a safe distance from the Gentlemen seated.
Additionally they are poised to mobilize at a moments notice should the gap narrow ....
I believe that they also wrapped rope around the tires for very muddy roads to help with traction but that car is too clean to have been on a muddy road so perhaps they're just getting ready for a muddy road.
The Tires may be muddy and that's why they look black if they are black they are splotchy.
Actually, they are on their way to Climax (MN) having just been through Intercourse (PA).
I wonder if any of them have ever laughed.
Unmoved by their gentlemen, the women have taken up position in the orgasmobile.
Someone recently posted a picture of tires that were manufactured with ribs that look like these rear tires.
Looks like a bunch of guys in back waiting their turn, and a few of the Old fols on the other porch that are "not going to have anything to do with that darned velocipede !!"
The long-running joke here in Minnesota is "Fertile woman killed in car accident while approaching Climax" and variations thereof such as newspaper headlines that read "Fertile Woman Dies In Climax," etc.
Fertile is about 35 miles east of Climax.
(On a side note, my grandmother moved to Fertile, MN after she remarried.)
Judging by the population signs, it looks to me like there is a 3.34:1 ratio of those who can and those who do.
However, judging by the photo it looks like a carload of disappointment and unmet expectations...
"The Ford will convey you to Climax, but it won't bring you to climax."
Or will it..........?
Well, the Ford is pretty reliable. Maybe they are on a really long trip.
They all look a little passed off to me. Neat car. Tim
If I came across these women, I would go the other way. They all look like they have an attitude to me.
About 20 years ago I picked 2 different piles near Climax,1 had what was left of a 12 body.
If the front license plate was legible, I could tell you who owned the car.
Discussion between the men...
"How many women does it take to drive a "T"?
Those do look like ribbed tires. I guess ribbed rubbers give you more traction on your way to Climax.
Maybe it had a really good vibration from a unbalanced transmission
This thread should be retitled "Dirty Old Men Comments".
I am more interested in the single wire telephone drop. This ground return
system was obsolete in 1890 and only persisted on private lines and really
rural Mom-n-Pop independent exchanges. The sound on the line was like
talking to someone in a well.
Great photo !
"About time you showed up! Danged if you all ain't the sorriest pack o' hound-dogs that ever was! We was just gettin' ready to take the Ford and go out lookin' for you. Land o' Goshen, dinner's been ready an hour and we're all half starved! Now get in there and wash up before we skin you alive!"
The banner is misleading. None of those women have ever been to climax.
I think the banner says "Climax Minimum". Not the destination they hoped for.
You have to be careful when traveling in PA
A wrong turn and you could meet yourself!
If your desire to get to paradise is too strong you might panic.
And if you spend too much time here -
You could end up in This place.
Stay away from Pennsylvania --
Somewhere on our way to Great Bend in Kansas for a National Tour we came across two signs pointing to Liberal and Hooker!!!!
Allan from down under.
I like the wedding announcement in the newspaper a few year ago. "Peculiar (MO) man marries Normal (IL) woman.
Found the post Fred.
Those women don't look that happy to me!
They're not happy because they stopped to get directions but, none of the men there would help them reach Climax.
I have been awaiting the Climax of this discussion. };(
In our local paper there was the announcement " torrance baker dies at 69".
Plenty of incentive to make it past 70 right there!
OK, favorite "clean" dirty joke;
Couple meets working a large Chinese Restaurant. After an appropriately long courtship, they marry.
On the Wedding night the new groom says, "I'm kinda new to this, what would you like to do?"
The Bride thinks a moment and says, I'd like to try 69."
The groom says, "Why do you want broccoli beef with chow mien right now?"
That should read: Brockree beef riss snow pea.
I miss Jay Leno's "Headlines" when he was on the Tonight Show. There were some classics on there. Dave
