I would’ve loved to have lived in the 1950s

Ah, the fifties.

“Mom, I think I see one of those new hamburger places they’re talking about.”

“You mean, McDonald’s, dear?”…


OK, we can get a burger for Fido too.”

“Oh, goody.”

“Would you like that, Fido, huh boy?”


…And later, on the flight home…

“Gee whiz, don’t you just love living in the fifties, Mom?”

“Every minute of it, dear.”


While some of us were led to believe the fifties, defying the laws of optical physics, was in monochrome only, this of course turned out not to have been the case.
