Humor Existed Before the Internet

I know, I was just as surprised as you. It’s hard to imagine why people would go through the bother of creating humorous images when you can’t share it with 500 of your closest friends. While perusing old Clarions in search of sports articles to highlight in our homecoming display, I came across the title Manufactured Nudes. Rather surprised at finding such material in the Clarion, I scrolled down further to find this:

Upper Left: Reclining Nood. Upper right: The Bathers. Lower Left: Untitled Nood #9. Lower Right: Nood Figure Study #32A

Yep. Nood(le)s. Bravo Copeland, class of ’83. You made me LOL from a printed page.
