Amiche per la Pelle!

Found under an old pizza oven in a former Swan Valley vineyard homestead. So those Italians weren’t just working 24 hours a day. They were also reading pornography printed on incredibly low quality paper. Despite the paper grade it still appears that it cost $8:00 even back in 1976. Or was that $80:60? I’m afraid I can’t show you too much of the “amiche per la pelle” which I think means friends of the skin, but it does involve strap ons at several points and the sound effect “spruuut.” Any grammarians out there? Should it be strapons, strap-ons, or strap ons? Do you see a resemblance to the Continental Hair guy in the second photo? Maybe Stokes should try to get on the board of Pussycat?

    Eventually you answer your own questions LA – this must be the Sicilian; and the lady in the cap is obviously a clerical constable.

    I think this is worth $8,000, esp if the crummy paper has lasted 22 years.

    ‘Spruuut’ & the cover somehow go together.

    “Spruuut”: not a sound effect you’d see in the Batman comics.

    If the cover had speech bubbles, what would they be saying?

    Strap-ons, I should think.
    Also, cartoon pornography defies logic. Which really makes it perfect for TWOP.

    p l, not quite *all* of us :D

    But really; incisive and insightful humour has always been a initiator of thoughtfulness in those whose ‘education’ and upbringing has not totally quashed their ability to view life from an unconventional perspective.
    Good stuff.
    Please keep it up, all of youse.
    You’d be gratified to know how much this grumpy old fart appreciates it all.

    But back to the topic (so as not to get moderated out):
    L500 probably equated to a loaf of bread (I’d be happy to be corrected on that by someone who was actually there at the time) which might account for the cheap paper. The $8,00 was written buy someone who possibly learned to write in Italy – a quite distinctive formation.
    Profiteering mafia style?
    This kind of publication was still in production in Italy and Greece in 2004.
    Quite an art form really.

    if that officer is a YWL then her truncheon will have batteries in it

    is the woman on the cover scratching her rear – is she the arse-scratcher?

    YWL, arse-scratcher, Continental Hair Guy – this is clearly a very specific form of porn aimed at TWOP regulars- spookily created twenty years ago – is there a wormhole in the Swan Valley?

    Note that the artist has carefully avoided drawing any feet – I expect the Alsatian to make an appearance any minute

  10. I’m not really sure what she was doing, so I covered it up anyway. It does have YWL’s in it, but not these two on the cover.

    I may have to add a few more frames in a later post.

    Probably bought from an Italian Store – most likely Rifichi & Erichetti, who dealt in music and books from the old country, or more likely Mirella, Casa Del Disco in North Perth – for all your wog music requirements and preferred shop for 6EBA Italian announcers :-)

    Council for the Persecution : Now Mr Sniffwell its alleged you sniffed the young ladies chair. Is this true.

    Expert Witness ( interjecting) : Absolute tosh and balderdash
    Judge : Why didn’t you see your G.P. for this medication ?
    Troy : It has to be fresh.
    Judge: But surely the pharmaceutical variety is of the highest quality
    Troy: I forgot , its part of my problem.
    Expert Witness : snorts.
    Judge : You are a disreputable scoundrel Mr Sniffwell and I sentence you to a life time in the stocks. The rest of your days will be rent with ridicule and the smell of rotting eggs and cabbage ; a smell I assure you you will not enjoy.
