Bombed and Buzzed in 1976

Bombed Buzzed Smashed or Sober
A Book About Alcohol
Langone
1976

I could tell immediately from the font of the word “Bombed” that I had myself a lovely book from the 1970s. Almost every poster I had as a teen used that font. This is one of those teen nonfiction books used to write research papers. It’s okay. There are no pictures or anything interesting to break up the text. Newer books at least have a drunk teen on the cover.

Drugs and Anger cover

Angry Cool Kids

Drugs and Anger
Rawls
1995

Without a doubt, drugs and other substance abuse materials for kids is an eternal gold mine of laughs for ALB. So we have another drugs are bad book for your consideration. The title Drugs and Anger first made me ask: Maybe they are taking the wrong drugs? And then there is that snappy, oh-so-subtle graphic for the cover and my first thought was I hope they didn’t waste the stuff out of the bottle.  Rounding out the problems are the insipid captions on photos that are laughable. Weed it and don’t look back.

How about some nice cocktails instead?
