FUN FACT ABOUT THE DOUCHE KICKING SAND IN THE DORK’S FACE


The moral of the “1940’s comic book ad” story? Buy the Charles Atlas book to transform yourself from a mac to a man. What you probably don’t know is this ad is actually based on an actual event that occurred in Charle’s life. True that.  Some version of the beach scene happened in the early 1900s in Acri, Italy – Not sure if Charlie was the sand kicker or sand kickee.

  3. I remember reading that comic advert as a kid. It was around for ages. I did not know that it was based on a real life event.
