Hanging Out: The Upside Down Exercise Book
Jay & Rappaport
1983

I’m not a doctor, and I’m not a trainer.  Doing inversion exercises might just be the best thing ever.  This book still has a ridiculous cover.  You have to admit, it’s dated in a really funny way.  If these exercises are still considered by health professionals to be beneficial, it’s time for a new book on the subject.

Indiana Jones, Really?

Indiana Jones Explores the Incas
Malam
1996
Thanks to submitter who was horrified to discover that this was the only item in the library about Inca culture.  Submitter also included a sample page of our man Indy overlooking what must be Inca traffic!  Now I am kind of sorry submitter didn’t explain more of why on earth Indiana Jones seems to be overlooking a major Inca traffic jam.  Wait!  I am so stupid!  It is probably weekend traffic headed for Machu Picchu!

I wonder what’s up with the “Juice” since 1977?

The Picture Life of O.J.Simpson
Jameson
1977

I bet there are few pictures missing from this picture biography of O.J.’s life.   I wonder if today’s kids remember that he was a football player?  Biography is tough nut for me.  I personally object to anyone getting a biography before age of 50 since they really have a lot more life left!  (Since I am pushing 50 myself, I might change that to 60.)  Case in point, our friend O.J.  Think he has had a few life changes since 1977?
I would love to hear from youth librarians about this one!
