15+ Vintage Photos Of Dicks

15+ Vintage Photos Of Dicks - Awkward Galleries

Some people collect stamps. Other people collect license plates. Or coins. Or Star Wars memorabilia. Or vintage soda cans.

Stacy Waldman collects Dicks–vintage photos of people, places and things named Dick. As she told our friends at Flashbak, “I put them into categories. For example, ‘Big Dicks’ are adult men named Dick. ‘Little Dicks’ are boys named Dick. ‘Dick Destinations’ are places named Dick, and ‘Friends Play with Dick’ refers to photos of Dick and his friends. You get the idea. Recently, I added photos of Richards and put them into the category ‘Don’t call me Dick!’ I’m hoping to gather 365 photos of Dicks so that I can eventually have a desk calendar called ‘365 Days of Dick’. I have about 300 photos, so I’m getting close.”

Everyone needs a hobby, Stacy. Here’s hoping you find as many Dicks as you could ever want!

Check out Stacy’s Facebook page, House of Mirth, for more Dicks than you can shake a…stick at.

The 2017 New York City Taxi Drivers Calendar Is Here!

The 2017 New York City Taxi Drivers Calendar Is Here! - Awkward Galleries

It turns out sexy calendars aren’t just for fire fighters. For the past five years, New York City taxi drivers have been stripping down for a pinup calendar that pokes fun at the traditional pin-up. And it’s even for a good cause. Proceeds from go to University Settlement, a settlement house on the Lower East Side that caters to immigrant and working families. The calendar has raised $50,000 to date.

The calendar began in 2012 when Phillip and Shannon Kirkman got some taxi-driving friends together and made a calendar as a gag gift for a friend. Word quickly spread among the taxi driving community, and the unsolicited submissions rolled in. Now, in addition to having fun and raising money, the calendar’s goal is to show a different side of taxi drivers people might not otherwise see.

You can order your copy here.
