I Sank Your Battleship

Wow. Yesterday I learned that I had previously greatly underestimated the amount of Easter ham that I am capable of eating. My GOD, it was delicious! I was barely able to get up from the table and find my way to my computer so that I could surf the Innerwebs. But I'm glad that I did. Had I not, then I wouldn't have run across the little gem below. From the days when boardgames were everything, I present to you an original cover from the game of Battleship. Behold!


What a great game that was/is. "America's all time favorite game". I bet it was. Very wholesome and very...wait a minute. How come only the guys are playing? What are the girls doing in the background there? I need a close up. Close up!


Oh, you have GOT to be kidding me! The guys are playing the game whilst the women are in the kitchen doing the freaking dishes?! How all-American of them. Man, we could not have moved past that mindset fast enough if you're asking me. Washing dishes. For cryin' out loud...

and not only are they washing dishes - they are very happily washing dishes! It seems they are enjoying themselves doing that as much as the boys are enjoying themselves playing their war game.

As it should be.

Well, hell, then who's making the sandwiches?

Scott Jacobs said...

Shit, Mark's got a good point...

Maybe they don't show that because it's AFTER the meal that the women made for the men folk?

I knew this day would come. I'm outnumbered. What do you want on your sandwich?
