CINDYBIN'S VIDEO PICKS OF THE WEEK: MYSTERY DATE BY MILTON BRADLEY


Who will be my dream date? Could it be the “formal dance” guy, or the bowling date? Maybe the beach or the skiing guy? But let’s hope it is NOT the “dud”! He is poorly dressed, his hair is tousled, and he even needs a shave! What a bum!

I actually had the game “Mystery Date” as a kid in the 60’s, and I remember playing it with friends. It was always exciting to open the door and see what dreamboat (or dream-dud) was behind it. Manufactured by Milton Bradley, Mystery Date first appeared in 1965 and has been reissued several times since then.

Here is the original 60’s commercial for Mystery Date. The girls look like they are having so much fun! I also stumbled across a silly Mystery Date parody (by CrashingCrockery) you can check out if you are brave.  

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This makes me furious. Teaching little girls to be sluts via Milton Bradley? I have been rallying against dating and sex for at least 10 years on the internet. It leads to all these unwanted societal problems like spreading disease, unwanted children, poverty, drug abuse, proliferation of nuclear war, and the degradation of the fabric of America. Dating should be outlawed and pre-arranged marriages should become the norm again. Dowries should make a comeback. Women can stay in the kitchen and cook and clean and take care of the childrens.

Sound good?
