    #23 Arnold! #20 I don't know who she is but she is more than hot

    • Zachd

      Such a simpler time, before bras.

      • Dude Imbibes

        What's better then burning it? Never having it

        • banananah

          than let's drink to that!

      • Greg

        I'm fairly sure they had bras in the 70's.

    • ello

      Arnold is coming

    • Stan

      Erm…i think she WAS hot. I highly doubt she still is. Unless that over 60s thing floats your boat. I mean, i'm not here to judge.

      • Epitomizer

        You're a dumbass who just posts for the sake of posting, which you are allowed to do, and I am in turn allowed to call you a dumbass. Dumbass.

    • Byron_Black

      It is.

    • DaddyD

    • luckyB

      • thedude325

            • The Mad Zak

    • MattDamonFace

    #19 Vandalism on a colossal scale.

    • RandomTask09

      …on land stolen from the Native Americans and sculpted by an active member of the KKK. Although he named his son after his favorite president, Lincoln (who freed the slaves).

      • Lyte

        Great canvas for a great artist, regardless of affiliations. It's still something to be proud of, isn't it? 😀

      • Stabber

        Did you ever wonder why the Emancipation Proclamation always showed about one paragraph and finished with "…"? Lincoln didn't free all the slaves, just the ones in places not committed to the federal government.

      • Whitey

        So sorry, Chief.

    • Kodos

      The white man won. Get over it.

    • GetITRight

      Sorry, gotta thumb down your comment because I don't think you quite understand the word 'vandalism'.
      Vandalism is defacing property, even for the sake of art, if you do it WITHOUT PERMISSION from the owner of said property.

    • Big Tex

      too bad that's a bad photo copy…where's the QAQC dept. on this one?

    • WG27

      Look closely. Sorry to say it, but they 2 completely different mountains. Just saying…

      • Dr Fap

        Or is it that over time the mountain has been warn down from natural occurrences ?

      • Craig K.

        Maybe you should "just say" something when you're right. Those are the same mountain.

    • Bollyver

      Looks like there's room for Obama.

      • Nobama 2012

        The can make one for him in china

    • Tim

      Uhhhh…. Roads and cities are a little worse, no?

  • press


    In her day, she was special.

    • bookmark


      Welsh was her cousin who lived in Wales.

      • Holmespump

        …and made grape juice.

        • Daith_Lee

          not grape DRANK?

    • DaddyD


    • jesseDubya


      • Robbi Y

    • Devin_Medrano

      • etcrr

    • Underbaker

  • Maria

    Oh, how I lold. ^^

    • DaddyD

      Robin Williams?

      • Rob

        Yup lolz

      • Smartass

        Yes. It's from an episode of Mork & Mindy where Mork wants to become a cheerleader. It's not really funny. Just weird. I blame Tootsie for it and for Bosom Buddies (even tough it's probably backwards).

        • Pete

          Yeah, it was kind of the start of the end for the show.

  • Spywit1izzye

    Oooh Gatdam dat be Raquel Welch! Can yoos dig up some Pam Grear! Thanks Pimp!

    • @Dignen

      Pam Grear was hot too. She even looked pretty good in Jackie Brown.

    • passwordistaco

      *Grier – and she's hot, she's not Raquel Welch hot though. Both still looked good the last time i saw them.

    • Holmespump

      I am assuming the translation: "Oh my, that's Raquel Welch! Can you gentlemen please find some pictures of Pam Grier, as well? Thank you!"

      Here you go —

    #10 MOAR!!!!!

  • Muadieb

    #10 #20 I can dig it even though they're both more than likely old enough to be my grandmother…

    • abukhara

      the good old days before plastic surgery and photoshop.
      simply stunning.

  • GoBlues

    # 14
    You know it's way back when because he's not looking at her tits

  • Tomatso

    One of the most unique galleries I have seen on the chive yet. More of this and less soft porn

    • oldmanbingle

      I agree. Not likely to happen. Posts like this take effort. Soft porn is easy.

    • Mat

      Maybe the Chive will put together a gallery of closets you can imagine yourself coming out of.

      • MehChive

        Though I agree with Tomatso, your comment made me chuckle.

      • yeah

        If you come to the Chive to prove your heterosexuality, then you're doing it wrong Mat. There's only about 98,395,002,208 porn sites out there.

    • @laurentaryn

      Very much agreed!

  • Oregon_country

    #20 Glad to see bras were burnt back then.

    • fed

      although usually it was also combined with hairy armpits and other bodily parts

      • Oregon_country

        Not sure on the pits, but I agree on the other parts.

    • tempest

      This generation invented bra burning. Part of early feminism, also free love hippy crap.

  • Tobyelius


    Shazbot!, I am a Denver Cheerleader Mindy!!

    #2 Smalls: I was gonna put the ball back.
    Squints: But it was signed by Babe Ruth!
    Smalls: Yeah, you keep telling me that! Who is she?
    Ham Porter: WHAT? WHAT?
    Kenny: The sultan of swat!
    Bertram: The king of crash!
    Timmy: The colossus of clout!
    Tommy: The colossus of clout!
    All: BABE RUTH!
    Ham Porter: THE GREAT BAMBINO!
    Smalls: Oh my god! You mean that's the same guy?

      How about a Back in the Day Hot List post, Chive?
      Ann Margaret, Raquel Welch, Sophia Loren, Marilyn, Rita Hayworth, Jane Russell, Julie Newmar, Claudia Cardinale…to name a few.

      • MatadorPride

        Grace Kelly – hottest babe ever

  • Motofoxe

    #11 I agree with Mick.

    • 2Dogs


    • LucretiusCarus

      Divine was a force unto him/herself. See Pink Flamingos. Totally worth it.

    • Dude Imbibes

      Yeah he looks like he just dropped a brick in his undies

    • thatguy

      Is that Ursula from the little mermaid?

      • Rex Hondo

        Close. The design of Ursula the Sea Witch was based on Divine.
