Around the time students were returning to school this year, we shared a collection of bizarre classroom posters from the '70s -- discussion starters that often asked existential questions like, "What can you do when no one seems to care?" Now, as we ready for Thanksgiving break, here's a sequel, straight from 1974. The difference this time? None of the oddly beautiful illustrations have captions -- so we came up with some of our own. See what you can learn below.
"I found this outfit in your closet -- and you can't have it back!"
"This dress is horrible! I'm shopping in your closet from now on!"
"Mmmm... tobacco. It's definitely the coolest way to slowly kill myself."
"Looks like you're smoking grass, too."
"I'm sorry for smoking anything, God!"
"On second thought, maybe this worked out pretty well after all."
"Education makes me sleepy."
"I think my mom was wrong about all the popular kids wearing sports jackets and ties."
"This is a baseball cap with the bill cut off. I swear!"
"If want to be a top-notch bully, get better jokes."
"I hope there aren't any pervy scoutmasters watching us right now."
"Dear Jimmy. We moved while you were at camp, and we're not telling you where. Love, mom and dad."
"What great disguises. No wonder the principal doesn't realize they're a drug gang."
"Guess I'll take a break from fantasizing about Becky Johnson's training bra and think about my future..."
"I'll bet I can make big bucks selling those chemicals on the side."
"If I do a good job as a crossing guard, maybe they'll let me fuck some shit up."
"I don't care what the job is, as long as they let me wear that excellent suit."
"I wish that creepy Billy Wilkinson would stop fantasizing about my training bra..."
"I'd do a helluva lot better in this job than he would -- and be paid 60 percent of his salary."
"Even in my policewoman dreams, I'm stuck with a desk job."
"Yeah, being a receptionist would be a dream come true."
"I think it's time to burn my bra."
