The Living Room of the Future! (as envisioned in 1979)

(click image to read copy, via reddit. I lost this in the Blogger crash on Thursday, so I'm re-posting.) Yes, they got the UGGs right. But why it is always jumpsuits? WHY? Pervy Man #2 is taping his neighbor's little girl/boy. It's from this book, fyi.

That's the best line you've come up with on here in a long time, Copyranter. It cracked me up!

Good job!

I think the track suits are to compensate for the subconscious fear that in this comfortable world of the future we'll all be fat.

Well, if WALL-E is to be believed, WHICH IT SHOULD BE, yes.

At least the illustrator had the foresight to realise it was unlikely we'd all still have long hair and massive beards in 'the future'.

I had this book as a kid. It introduced me to the idea of sky hooks for space travel. It was great!
