Dear Milt Williams, Novelty Guy:
I hardly know what to say about this. I do want to point out a few things though (cue the bullet post!):
-Whether or not these Novelty Pants were really a big seller in 1943, I hardly think that the image of them "going like wildfire" is an attractive one.
-Also, your Pants are not just wrong in an aesthetic sense, but a geographical one, for Pearl Harbor is not located in Ogden, Utah.
-And remembering Pearl Harbor through the medium of synthetic underwear is just seven thousand kinds of wrong. I mean, Milt, really - you know that, right?
-Describing rayon as "extra fine quality rayon" is an oxymoron.
-No one wants a lot of 100 of these. I hope.
-What sort of "camp or city" would want this sort of thing for its residents?
-Never mind, I don't really want to know. On second thought, maybe I do. Then I will be able to to stay far, far away.
