Hi Everyone,

Parker produced a paper called the Parkergram and Shoptalker from the 30's to the 80's for employees aand Dealers. The cartoons below are just a few in these papers showing Parker did have a sense of Humor. roflmho.gif roflmho.gif

Enjoy, Francis

Wonder if we can pin these?

Should be good to keep this at the forefront of our forum.

The first one (angels) reminds me of a VERY similar drawing with the caption "Well, I guess now its just taxes."

I took the liberty of putting Francis' posting for the World's Fair up here - or I'm trying do do so: (it worked)

From Parkercrazy:

HI Everyone,

Thought you might be interested in Parker's contribution to the New York World's Fair 1964 - 65. I was stationed over seas at this time and never attended, but sure wish I could have. Lots of information in these old Parkergrams and Shoptalkers, I found this interesting and hope you also enjoy. :puddle: :puddle:

Take Care, Francis

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Okay okay, I'm probably being thick, but why do they keep talking about fountain pens writing underwater? They can't....right? Ugh confusing jokes, they drive me to distraction.
