“What?!” I exclaimed, unable to control my confused laughter. What I had just read made no sense and was about the last thing that I had ever expected to read, more or less, in a newspaper. Little did I know where it would lead…

I had been spending the previous few weeks researching for a book I was writing. Unfortunately, and now fortunately, one of the only sources I had for information on the story was by scanning old newspapers. So I did this tediously so. Looking through countless newspapers from the late 1910s and early 1920s.

Throughout the course of doing so, I started realizing that some of the other articles I had stumbled across were just as entertaining, if not more so, than the articles I were looking for that pertained to my book.

That’s when I ran across and article that read (paraphrasing) ‘1/4 of Returning Men from the Great War are Infected with Cooties’. “What?!” I exclaimed to myself. I knew that I should have trusted my instincts way back when all the grown ups told us that cooties didn’t exist. More importantly, I knew that there were a plethora of other hilarious or interesting old time articles out there and that other people would enjoy reading them as much as me. Hence, this blog was born. I moronically didn’t bookmark that cooties article and still haven’t been able to relocate it. But I will. And until then, I hope all the other articles I have found bring you as much enjoyment as they have me.
