Lee Majors is Dynamite!

Next to several issues of Bananas, I came across this:

Lee Majors on the cover of Dynamite

Raise your hand if you remember Dynamite. It, like Bananas, was published by Scholastic Inc..

Also in this 1982 issue:

  • Off the Record… The “Group of the Month” is Air Supply (“Air Supply has been a regular on the charts, proving that the group isn’t all out of fans!”) and Melissa Centrella of West Chester, PA won a copy of an REO Speedwagon LP.
  • Good Vibrations… In the letter segment, one kid writes that “I’m afraid of the water” while another says, “I am scared of my mother.”

Ahhh, Dynamite. The day that the boxes containing the books came to the classroom was like a holiday. The smell of the new books, kids excited to see what their friends got.

What I would give for those simpler times...

Scholastic Inc. was/is awesome. My girlfriend's Mom is a teacher and she still orders stuff from them. Unfortunately I do not believe Lee Majors is the main topic of discussion in any current Scolastic Inc. publications though.

Visiting the Ping for the first time today and seeing Lee Majors' sweet face and fuzzy chest greeting me made me moist.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
