The best thing is to watch the movie with a man who was a kid in the late 1940s - so much of what's in that movie has them laughing in recognition and nostalgia.

But as a female who grew up in the late 1960s, I find it really funny too. Yes, some things make me cringe (don't touch the flag pole!), but I still laugh too.

If you didn't grow up where there was snow in the winter you dont know what can happen when you touch your tongue to a flag pole, swing set, etc.
Slinky's rule for NC.com:

I suppose I can't judge you because you married a serviceman and it is wartime. Boo hoo. You must be loney sitting at home with nothing else to do but pick on people. Why don't you go masterbate again?
