21. 1970's Metal Lunchboxes With a Glass-Lined Thermos

For children. Inside a metal lunch box. Didn't matter if it was Barbie, Hong Kong Fooey, or Hot Wheels; the Thermos bottle had a glass lining. The lining would last approximately two days, if it didn't in fact break on the way to school. I remember actually pursing my lips and actually drinking my milk through the glass. It took the lunchbox people around eight years or so figure out that it was a bad idea. See also 70's, Children, Schools.

Funny TV Shows

26. Three's Company

Yes, the show's trademark innuendo and misunderstandings could be funny, but what makes the show inherently funny is that the situation driving this situational comedy was a landlord who was tolerant of homosexuals but not unmarried cohabitation. Was there really a point in American culture when this was plausible? See also 70's, Homosexual, Sitcom.

Funny Books

29. The Joy of Sex Shop

Alphabetically organized, and quite specific in detail, it was for many of us, our first sexual experience, or, for that matter, learning experience—carefully pulling the book down off the shelf when no one is home. By the way, they actually made a Vol. 2 with less hairy, scraggly people. See also 70's, Sex.
