The Unsettling Slang of Mister Peter Parker

What with work, travel, and yummy, yummy, turkey, this is a busy busy Bully week, folks, so hope you'll excuse brief picture-oriented entries most of this week. Most of them are going to be from the great but not quite successful black-and-white Spectacular Spider-Man magazine of 1968, featuring the fantastic artwork of Jazzy John Romita. That alone is worth the price of admission, especially in glorious black-and-white, but there's a few oddities lurking within these greyscale pages. For example:

Whoa, who says that it wasn't the Mighty Marvel Age of Innuendo and Double-Entendre?
