"Teen-Agers" From 1954:
Annoying Beyond Belief


This most excellent book is a gift from the library of my buddy and fellow MBTV contributor Nicole.

The cover design is just so creative. Why, they managed to include each number from 13 to 19, without missing a single one. Now, that's good design!

You wouldn't think design this boring could contain such hilarity within.


Yo, when you were putting together your own personal to-do list, sir, did you forget the part about scheduling the time to have that yardstick surgically removed from your ass? To get us started, here's a list of "Tasks for Teen-Agers":

Oh, brother! I mean, these are
mostly good suggestions -- well, except for the "accepting yourself as a boy or a girl" part. I'm not even sure what that's supposed to mean, but I'll bet it has something to do with telling homosexuals that it's "just a phase" they're going through. You know, "mind over matter," or something like that.

By the way, if you have some time to kill after completing the list, do you think you could wax my car and have a go at cleaning the bunny cages? There's a dear.

I find it hard to believe that every Teen-Ager in 1954 was profoundly socially retarded,
but this book assures me it was so...
