The Breast of Blind Melon

buxom-melons

this was an actual company name and a product they sold, and the Buxom lady’s trademark was filed on December 27, 1943, meaning people loved double entendre boob jokes back in the 40s.  bless those peoples!!

here’s some more great crate art from the filthy fine folks of F.H. Hogue Co., although sadly not as double entendrey as ‘Buxom Melons’.  what, was ‘Beeting Off‘ or ‘Endive Into Your Pants‘ too racy of a company name???
