As she will no doubt demand recognition, it was Mary who spotted the apron first. Although, to be fair, it was on an eye-level shelf in a booth populated by items of muted and tones and entirely dissimilar provenance. In short, it stuck out like a sore thumb so I can't give her too much credit. Because this apron was new in its original packaging, we were fortunate to get the paper label that showed the other styles in the same line of novelty aprons created by the Parvin Manufacturing Company of Los Angeles.
|Boy Howdy, would I have liked to have found the|
"Chuckwagon Charlie" cowboy apron. I love anything
|Was the fur trim supposed to be on his hat?|
Also, to what is this in reference? I couldn't make sense
of it as an "amusing motto" or a "joke."
|I'm the Chuck Norris of home cooks|
- I make the onions cry.
|Tell me about it!!!|
|A cork "For the hole in your head"|
I needed this apron like I needed another hole in my head
so the cork came in quite handy.
|This is how I was raised. Strangely enough, it|
never occurred to me to leave food behind...
|Cause I'm the champ!!!|
Everything I want is illegal, immoral AND fattening!
|They call me Mr. Tiny but you can call me Mr. Tiny; I like to keep it professional.|
|Kilroy even makes an appearance.|
|A playboy is just a boy unless he is PLAYing a little grab a**!|
Should an unruly partygoer disregard the warning, giving the fanny a pinch,
he would receive an unpleasant surprise...
At the Early Bird Cafeteria, you'll get your food, but there is only one item on the menu.
|Now that is cheeky!|
Just below the waist, there is an Emergency Exit.
|...at least not for its intended purpose.|
I so wanted to make it look like I was wearing nothing but the
apron but that is truly an image that would haunt your dreams!
What about you? Do you wear an apron when you get cookin'? What's your favorite apron in your collection?
