Hilda, 1950s Pinup Girl, Makes Us Very Happy

Hilda, 1950s Pinup Girl, Makes Us Very Happy

Commented Aug 10, 2013 at 13:33:10 in Women

“The thing is that, in all of these drawings, Hilda seems to be bumbling. So it still portraying the larger woman as a more comical character.”

“Lucy, in I love Lucy, was a beautiful curvy read head and was portrayed as bumbling. Marilyn Monroe's characters were also usually that way too.”

ochaye on Aug 10, 2013 at 17:28:40

“Bumbling, bumbling, bumbling. Could her facial expressions have lead you to that conclusion?”

IvyShoots on Aug 10, 2013 at 15:09:33

“Actually, the humor is based on her being a hillbilly, not on her being large.

Similar artists, like Gil Elvgren and Art Frahm, often featured young ladies in comic, awkward positions like that. Especially Frahm's work -- he was obsessed with women's panties falling down when their arms were full of packages. It's like a fetish.”

“(Pardon if I double post - thought my first log-in failed but it evidently didn't. My bumble - now everybody can play guess what size I am!)”

“I see a woman skillfully and elegantly navigating a barbed wire fence, high waves in a small boat, and a railroad track. As for the rest of "all of these drawings" I don't see what she's bumbling by reading a book, soaking her feet, testing the lake water or setting off a firecracker. She has a couple of comical moments with her cow there, but in both she seems more the victim of the cow's bumbling than the bumbler. A person would have to have a very strongly preconceived perception of a "larger woman as a more comical character" to see this character's actions and reactions as bumbling.”

tattytiara on Aug 10, 2013 at 14:03:32

“I see her navigating rolling waves in a tiny boat with confidence and a smile, skillfully balancing on a railroad track, and artfully writing her name in the sand. In other frames black cats are crossing her path and a cow is stepping on her hose, but she's not doing anything ridiculous. The rest are completely benign - reactions to feet in warm water, and a toe in cold, waiting for a firecracker to go off and answering the phone from the tub (an awkward situation, but not one that she appears to be having difficulty with). Heck in one she's even managed to make a big enough opening in a barbed wire fence to pass through safely in a bikini, and without gloves! Where is this bumbling you see in "all of these drawings"?”

Cargosquid on Aug 10, 2013 at 13:52:01

“Bumbling?

Where do you see that? I see no bumbling.

I see an active woman that sails, ski's, fishes, balances on a rail, rides horses.”

“Is this the new trend? Your guests pay for your wedding? Traditionally the bride's family pays for the wedding, I thought. If you are not financially able to accommodate your guest list, then maybe you should downsize. This is the second such story in a very short time. I am appalled.”

“You see? spoken like a true republican. Facts are facts my friend, they only skew in your world. Republicans are the only people that can deny factual evidence and say with a straight face that it is liberal. Just like in schools. you guys are trying to destroy them more than they are, but interjecting opinion over facts. And you guys claim that schools have indoctrinated students with a liberal bias. THE TRUTH ISN'T LIBERAL IT IS THE TRUTH!!! Capiche???”

“How is it an eye opener? the man has never met Barack Obama and has admittedly based his entire movie on Obama's Dreams of my Father. which is based on Obamas ideals of his father, since he barely knew him. Why not just read the book, and skip the hyperbole.”

“I worked for HD for a short period, they actually brought us in to a room and told us about the evils of Unions and told us NOT to speak to anyone from unions. They made it very clear,(without saying it) that anyone cooperating with Unions would find themselves out of a job - good thing it was only a part time job for me, I quit soon after.”

“What scares retailers the most is the thought that average citizen employees can have a voice in running the company that they only work for too as managers, and not entrepreneurs. They can't outsource retail workers because they can not outsource their jobs.

Pay the workers in retail more and then we won't send as much of our money to China and the overpaid managers (i.e. CEO's) won't buy off our politicians.”

“I have often gotten agitated with people that do the right thing for the wrong reason. Those that act because it makes themselves look better. I have come to the conclusion, though, that, in politics, that is all we can count on. So be it if President Obama is making the right stand because it will garner support for him in his bid for re-election. That shows that he is at least trying to get the support of the right people. He could go the opposite direction and reinforce doma and up the anti on illegal immigration. I prefer someone that is tailoring their campaign to appease progressive agendas than the other side.”

“As a former server, I can assure you that every person that serves you has ranted or complained in such a manner. I haven't met one that has acted on it, although I am sure that some have.
Regardless, in the era of social media, it is stupid to post something in a public way that could inadvertently be read by one's employer. When servers complain about customers they usually go to a secure area so as not to be heard. Posting publicly on a Facebook page that isn't restricted to trusted friends has now become the equivalent of saying it in the presence of a manager or a customer.
Everyone blows off steam and I think they have the right. You can't make a judgement on one's ability to deal with the public based on their rightful indignation at being tipped so poorly.”

TeeSC on Jun 22, 2012 at 10:46:59

“But yes, you can.  Blowing off steam with a few friends is one thing.  Posting on a PUBLIC forum is another.  I keep a journal to write all the nasty things I want to say about someone when I'm pissed off.  Knowing it will never see the light of day and truly doesn't represent my feelings about them.  Posting on FACEBOOK???  She knew exactly who was going to see her rant.  And it absolutely does represent her ability to deal with the public.  FB is the most public forum out there.

And tips are not mandatory.  They represent someone's opinion of your service. If her lack of ability to deal with the public extends to posting rants on a public forum, she most definitely doesn't need to be in the business.  There is nothing "rightful" about someone tipping her according to her service.

And I'm a former "server" as well.”
