Sometimes, things are wrong. At one point they may have been alright, and are now considered wrong, or, they always have been and ever will be just plain wrong. Oft times, these wrong things are also funny.

With that in mind, this endeavour features two main strands: the "Shelf of Shame" (books) and the "Screen of Shame" (film) and smaller strands such as "Sound of Shame" (vinyl) and "Miscellany of Shame" (various) - each showcasing items from my personal collection of bibliographic and cinematic oddities and curios.

Deemed shame-worthy according to varying criteria of wrongness, these humourous, surprising, and occasionally instructive items are therefore posted here for your perusal, amusement and edification. Enjoy.

Shelf of Shame #11


Blake, Mary. Teen Time Cooking (with Carnation). 1959: Carnation Company: Toronto. Small 8vo. booklet, w. Illus. card covers. 16pp. Colour illus. throughout.


I mean, I'd really like to believe they're going to cook, in a kitchen, with food. However, the cover illustration seriously calls that intent into question.

Particularly suspect in this context are recipes like "South of the Border Noodles and Beef" or "Five Minute Fudge for the Girls". The author proclaims: "You can learn to take pride and satisfaction in your cooking. Fun and memories are built around food." This booklet may well foster your culinary prowess... or awaken a deep-seeded affinity for sploshing.

Notes on Evaporated Milk
Everything you ever wanted to know about Sploshing... but were afriad to ask.

  1. I especially like how each boy is holding both sides of the apron... i guess the "Don't Cross the Swords" rule is out?
