The chameleon has no clothes.
This page from the Goodtime Weekly Calendar of 1963 marks the week beginning forty-nine years ago today, and has an image of a very rare, wild American chameleon. You may be thinking that the photographer, credited only as L.G., photographed this one before she shifted to blend in with the background. But no—this is after she’s changed. These unusual creatures have woefully inadequate camouflage skills. Their skin only changes after a lot of exposure to the sun, and then it only turns brown. But they don’t know that. Notice the smirk? It’s because she thinks she’s totally invisible. Sad, really.

Yeah, I know it’s a weird pose, but these babies need all the support they can get.
We’ve reached the end of our second month of the Goodtime Weekly Calendar of 1963 with another image from renowned pin-up photog Ron Vogel, once more shooting a model unknown to us. We’re getting the sense, though, that he preferred his women busty. This week’s quips include a maxim from La Rochefoucuald, as well as observations from Paul Gibson, and others, plus an unattributed one-liner about Easter, a holiday we’re pretty sure came weeks before April 28, even in 1963. Well, with so many razor sharp witticisms needing to be published, how could the boys at Goodtime Weekly possibly be expected to fit in their uproarious Easter quip on Easter Sunday? This batch, we swear, will have you on the floor. In fact, maybe don’t read them at all. Yeah, thinking about it, that’s our recommendation—just skip them and get on with your day.
