Here are three more
electronics-related comics to help brighten your day. They appeared in a 1947
issue of Radio-Craft magazine. The first one reflects what was a
problem seen in early compact vacuum tube radios with molded plastic chassis.
The gag is the lady's blaming the problem on something else unrelated. The term
"table-top" probably originated in the early twentieth century to describe
products which, prior to miniaturization efforts using newfangled materials and
manufacturing methods, existed only in the form of large model that stood
separately on the floor. The last comic could actually be applied to today's
world if you substitute a cellphone for the corded handset. Enjoy!
