Here's an invention that Sir Sidney Fudd would be proud of - a record player for a car! The pictures look like they're from an ad .

D'oh!

Just realised that I've been thoughtlessly writing "add's" instead of "ad's".
Luckily the spelling police here arenít as quick off the mark as the boob police

Cheers,

In other words, the backwater religious fundamentalists win.

The sanitizing of forums such as this for their sake I find thoroughly revolting.

Hrm,ya..me too.
But on the other hand,It is sort of inappropriate for a "public" forum.

Maybe the (intact) post w/pics could be moved to the "sin bin" for those of us who aren't easily offended?

I dunno..just a thought.

You still don't have it correct. Have you thought of operating a fruit stand?

So, where do you draw the line? I'm with the moderators. There's no shortage of nekkid wimmin on my computer, so I don't need any on an audio forum.

Yikes! The controversy is growing.

It really was only a low quality, grainy black and white advert from an electronics magazine, featuring a pair of uncovered breasts.

I almost photoshopped the potentially controversial bitís out with black squares before posting it. Perhaps that would have made it acceptable?

BTW, do you guys have National Geographic magazine / television in the US??????

Cheers,
Glen
