Laugh out loud at the third hilarious collection of old-time pictures taken out of context, mixed with modern humor.

Old Timey Volume 3 delivers three times the absinthe and two times the filth! Writer, cartoonist, and World’s Fair historian, Mark Bussler, continues to warp 19th-century drawings with contemporary jokes about social media, technology, relationships, talking animals, and tequila.

Are couples discussing consumption by candlelight, or are they arguing over styles of peanut butter? Is a man talking to himself, or telling Alexa to play some 1980s hair metal? Is that new horse really compatible with an iPhone?

Taken way out of context, these amazing, classic cartoons and engravings deliver intense chuckles and gut-busting laughter. Bussler’s knack for spotting the most inappropriate things in the most innocent drawings from 1890’s newspapers is on display on every page.

Not for the kids, this third collection of Old Timey Pictures with Silly Captions brings more than 200 outrageous, timely, and often indecent cartoons sure to appeal to fans of classic 1980s comic strips and 1970s movies. Best enjoyed by candlelight with a glass of absinthe next to your talking horse.

Mark Bussler is the writer of more than 100 books, including 1939 New York World’s Fair: The World of Tomorrow in Photographs, Magnum Skywolf, Chicago 1933 World’s Fair: A Century of Progress in Photographs, The Ultra Massive Video Game Console Guide series, Robot Kitten Factory, and The World’s Fair of 1893 Ultra Massive Photographic Adventure series.
