MEANT TO EVOKE
AN OBSCENITY
WITH COMEDY

VULGARITY WAS
DESIGNED IN
THEATRES BY A
RESPECTABLE
WIDOW.
FOR THE CORRECT
CATALYST, WATCH
FRIENDSHIP
TODAY OR LOOK

IN THE HUSBAND.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“COLUMN INCHES
Refer to the advertising section or the classifieds in your source newspaper.

You may use multiple ads/classifieds, presented in the order of your choosing.” – from The OULIPOST Handbook
