As a boy, I loved discovering the great, old BILLBOARD, but was dismayed to find columns of carny ads offering "pickled punks". In those years, I believed these were real remains of babies someone had sold for display in glass jars. My revulsion was compounded when I learned they were formed of rubber, promoted as someone's concept of showbusiness.
