It's been a rough weekend, and so in order to brings some chuckles, raise some eyebrows and make some people hot under the collar, some covers to comics of yesteryear that appear to be not-so-innocent, courtesy of Maxim magazine.

Captain Cold sold the pics to the tabloids and made a TON of money.


Bondage? Rainbows? Muscles? Promises of fantasies fulfilled?

"When the Lilliputians had found Cap, his penis had been so traumatized that it went back into his body cavity, and he passed out from the pain. So they took him to the Maw, where the resident healer would have to ..."

The next panel shows the results of what happened with the angered lad, the viciously sharp knife and the prankster.

World's Finest....oh so fine....

That will always get your undivided attention, allowing Batman to walk up and land a haymaker....

More on their link.

You know, I understand why MOST of these are giggle-worthy, but there are two that I don't... really... get. They're both Archie covers - one's the one where Archie's buying a frisbee, and the other's the one where the girls are flipping out over Jughead's cooking. Maybe it's just me, but I can't see anything inappropriate about either of them. Thoughts?

You might want to check out the urban dictionary for a definition of "pearl necklace". In the Jughead one, "Eat Out" is the key phrase here.

...Oh. That's a tad obscure, isn't it?
Just who comes up with these things, anyway? I mean, are the entries on 'Urban Dictionary' actual phrases bandied about on the streets, or does whoever run the site just make them up? I never seem to hear about them until after they've appeared in 'Urban Dictionary'.

Not really...neither of those phrases is exactly further underground than any other sexual slang.

Maybe I'M underground, then. I haven't seen the sun much lately, come to think of it - I THOUGHT it was because it was overcast, but...

It's probably obscure unless you're blessed or cursed with immature males as friends, who will gleefully educate you on terms like "snowballing" and "A2M."

Well, thankfully I'm NOT, so yeah, that would explain it.

"Pearl Necklace" isn't that obscure, IMHO. I mean, if you've been the subject of a ZZ Top song and jokes in movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Half-Baked, I'd argue you're not unknown. Compare that with 'snowballing' as mentioned in 'Clerks', for example.

Well, I don't listen to ZZ Top and I haven't seen either of those movies - so I guess the problem is ME, then.

Well no, it's not that obscure, but I'm still with you on this one. Sometimes a pearl necklace is just a pearl necklace, and the phrase seems particularly innocent in the context of "what are you getting Betty for her birthday? 'Cause she though you were buying her pearl necklace." OH, OK THEN. I mean, I'm not really sure why that exchange should conjure up a mental image of Archie jizzing over Betty's clavicles either.

Except Betty doesn't say buying, but "She's expecting a pearl necklace."

Cut to a confused Veronica, as Archie solemnly unzips his pants on date night.

Yes, lowbrow college humor...

Yeah, exactly - there's 'dirty minds', and then there's 'searching desperately for something to dirty your mind with'. I mean, that comic was published decades before the term was ever created, and it's OBVIOUS what it MEANS - it means an actual pearl necklace. I don't WANT a mental picture of Archie giving her the... other sort of pearl necklace, thank you very much. It makes me feel all icky inside.
