5 Comics from When Sexual Assault was Considered Hilarious

From 1950 to 1968, there was a comic called The Adventures of Bob Hope. And for 109 issues, every single adventure started the same way: Bob Hope runs up to a strange woman and molests her. In the 50s, there was no pepper spray in the consumer market. Bob Hope was legally allowed to lick a woman more than 15 feet from her husband, and her response was only, "No time for rape, sir! I need to find a boat captain! Or a bull fighter! Or the world's greatest expensive cake carrier!" Then, of course, Bob Hope would claim to be those things to trick her into sex. I own many truly insane things and this comic series ranks among the insanest of them.

If this comic was released today it would be called Sexual Assault and Cake Dropping and a prison warden would be locking his facility down, demanding to know who made it. That's why I've rewritten The Adventures of Bob Hope for a modern audience.

Oh, and out of respect for the comedy legend, all of Bob Hope's original dialog will be unaltered.
