This was my favorite part of the 1963 thing Image did all those years ago. I used to laugh so hard when I would read this. I could not even read it thoguh without having to laugh to stop.:lol:

there was one in the mid to late 80s that had meatloaf and a bunch of marvel heroes doing some deal for charity that was incredibly awesome.

I've heard people in India use some of those phrases while speaking english. Especially 'Forgot not!'

this is a poem we had in school which makes fun of and showcases some of the gems of 'Indian-English'




Friends,
our dear sister
is departing for foreign
in two three days,
and
we are meeting today
to wish her bon voyage.

You are all knowing, friends,
what sweetness is in Miss Pushpa.
I don’t mean only external sweetness
but internal sweetness.
Miss Pushpa is smiling and smiling
even for no reason
but simply because she is feeling.

Miss Pushpa is coming
from very high family.
Her father was renowned advocate
in Bulsar or Surat,
I am not remembering now which place.

Surat? Ah, yes,
once only I stayed in Surat
with family members
of my uncle’s very old friend,
his wife was cooking nicely…
that was long time ago.

Coming back to Miss Pushpa
she is most popular lady
with men also and ladies also.
Whenever I asked her to do anything,
she was saying, ‘Just now only
I will do it.’ That is showing
good spirit. I am always
appreciating the good spirit.
Pushpa Miss is never saying no.
Whatever I or anybody is asking
she is always saying yes,
and today she is going
to improve her prospect
and we are wishing her bon voyage.

Now I ask other speakers to speak
and afterwards Miss Pushpa
will do summing up.

Now I need to go look for that. i am looking for the original add that inspired Moore to do this. I know that it was in an old Captain America book.

I think i got a totally different context than what was actually meant.

:lol:

That's one of the things the poet's making fun of. The amount of double entendre's that Indians let slip in 'Indian-English' is staggering.

it was on the back cover of almost every book i have from that period. i'm guessing somewhere between captain america 275 and 325, if that narrows it down at all.

I used to really get a kick out of the ads with Spiderman and the Power Pack talking about how it was okay to rat out adults who touched your no-no spots.

It's a toss up between the Seamonkeys ad and the ad for the thing where kids would have to sell greeting cards or some thing and redeem their sales for crap stuff. Was that some kind of scam or something or was it for real? Cause I wanted a couple of things from those ads... sigh... I still pine for an M&M telephone...

It's just a throw back to those old school Marvel ads, which always had Spidey or whoever wondering what said villain was up to.

For me it brings back happy memories when all the Marvel heroes were friends.
