Nudie Pencils

WARNING - PG Rated Post.

Children please ask your parents before reading any more.

This is, and always will be, a “G”- family rated blog, but from time to time standards slip and a little bit of “PG” rated stuff sneaks through. This is one of those times.

Here we have some late 1960’s mechanical pencils. The handsome man and beautiful young lady are posing in their bathing suits, but if you hold the pencil up the other way……well I think you can guess what happens to their bathing suits! Mechanical pencil pornography! (Wonder how many hits that search phrase will generate over the next few months?) But it’s not equal opportunity smut – there is only one man on the “man” pencil, whereas there are two different ladies on the other pencil. Three for the price of two?

The lady who sold me these claimed to know they were over 35 years old. Personally I would have guessed them as late 60’s to mid 70’s, so it seems to fit together. They are screw mechanisms, you turn the metal tip section around to advance or retract the lead. Although these are in pretty good condition, like many cheaper plastic pencils from that era they seem to be a bit warped. I suppose that’s not entirely inappropriate.

What?... and here I thought I had a good respectable hobby that was devoid of such smut.
I hope you know i am en-f***ing-raged at the thought.
Warped pencils!!!!!!!! What is this world coming to?

Maybe this posting should have been R18 or something?
Guess I'd better put a serious warning on future pictures of pencils that are "bitter, twisted or even (shock, horror) broken"!

The other interesting thing is that these pencils still "work" - their suits disappear! Lots of these types have dried out so the little cars or boats are stuck, or the signs stay covered, etc.

Uhhhh....pencils showing people without clothes. Clearly there are worse things??!! I had several when I was still in school...found a whole bag of them. Sold very well and made homework so much more fun ;)

Um... I want to see the pics without the clothes on!

Sorry, but since this is a "family friendly all-ages" type blog I'm afraid that the pictures without clothes on have to remain 'for my eyes only'.
