1981 Montgomery Ward Christmas Catalog: Insane Laughing Heads and the Green Weenie

“The Laffun Heads… spit water at you, stick out their tongues, roll their eyes and convulse into about 20 seconds of insane laughter!” That’s not freaky at all. But at least they don’t have hands with which to strangle and/or stab you to death in your sleep. Shogun Warriors, protect me!

“Squeeze the Green Weenie” has got to be the best “toy” ever cataloged: “Eyes will pop and tongue will wag. Sure to be a popular diversion at your next party. The Green Weenie is about 6½ inches long…”

A 12 inch version appeared in 1979, but the divorce rate in the American suburbs instantly tripled, so it was banned by a Moral Majority-led coalition and eventually airdropped en masse over the annual Russian Women’s Bureau Conference.
