Also from World’s Finest Comics #236 (man, that issue’s a gold mine of crap) is this, uhm, interesting ad.  Yes, you could get 25 real, live seahorses for a mere $2.98 (about $10 today), or the deluxe model for $10.95 (about $38 today).


Cool, you say?  Well, yes, I guess it would be.  The only thing is, seahorses aren’t really well known for living long in captivity, particularly since they thrive on live food.  So little Sally, after playing with Tommy’s Tricky Willie, would come home to find her pets pushing up daisies (or would that be seaweed?).  Hence the need to send pregnant males.


Still, it wouldn’t have to be all bad.  I guess you could always eat them later…
