I Scanned These For You

From the Cabel Sasser Comedy Archives, two pieces of paper I've had sitting around forever. Now that I have a blog, I can finally throw them out!

First, the best "Lost Pet" poster I've come across, with surprisingly punchy copy. Then, an honest-to-god actual unretouched brochure from Great America, containing a very special "bird surprise". Enjoy!

Duchy PosterCoaster Surprise

Special Duchy Postscript

I e-mailed Rosie, who lost Duchy, to find out if Duchy was ever found. She responded within minutes!
Yes, I found her three days after I put the poster up. She was under the neighbor's deck (probably had been the whole time.) She was fine! They had just dug up the earth under my window to plant, so although it was four stories, she landed on soft earth. Very lucky.

Thanks for asking - gosh, you have had that flyer a long time!
Yay hooray!


I can't tell what's so odd about the brochure? Is the guy in the size-up somebody I'm supposed to know? Or am I just not seeing something?

(It's the "bird surprise" — his magical middle finger. Well-executed and mid-coaster ride, no less! I guess now I know why it made it all the way to print — not everybody notices such juvenile things. ;))

Ah! Bird as in the finger. I guess I need a higher resolution scan to verify that claim. Anyway, I thought the problem with the ad was that on the upper right the text is flowing under the picture.

Comedy gold right here! Both are hilarious, the fact that you kept this stuff is ridiculous :)

It's semi-blurry... but is the guy in the front row, second from left, ALSO sporting a (sideways) bird?

My god, I think you're right! A double bird brochure!

The birds are fine and all, but how about that "MOST VARIETY OF THRILLS" headline? Someone needs to hire that copywriter now.
