(This image of young all-American teens pointedly not thinking about sex – whilst walking arm in arm, no less – brought to you in Buzzy #60.)
Are you sure that’s not Archie, Betty, Veronica, and -umm- a proto-Jughead?
I thought the same exact thing at first. But some quick research shows it’s the other way around. Buzzy Brown didn’t hit the scene until 1943, and this particular issue hit the stands around 1954. Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead were created around 1941. So we’re either looking at a “trend” or a blatant rip-off.
Me and my friends always talked about the merits of Dr. Pepper, and Coca-Cola, and other such tasty beverages in High School, as even thinking about sex is immoral.
My only conclusion is that they’re all gay – note how they’re spaced so that man and man and woman and woman never come in contact, resulting in those Horrible Sinful Loin-Feelings.
Sodas are goddamn delicious, these kids know what’s up.
They’re just hungry. The sex comes later.
Does anybody else think that the sodas are a metaphor?
You know what? Evan might be right. Look at the color of the soda glasses and the color of each character’s shirt. They’re all dreaming of a soda that’s that same (or at least similar) color as the person they’re arm in arm with. Maybe baldy in the middle is dreaming of one that’s tinted slightly brown because he’s into anal.
Who needs sex when you have high-fructose corn syrup and abstinence education?
