The Coppertone Battleaxe

Fark linked up this nifty interview with the real-life "Coppertone girl." She doesn't really have all that much to say, but her mother, the artist who created the illustration, was far more interesting:

"So whattya want to know?" she growled.

I wanted to know everything, I confessed, from the beginning to now, but especially about the Coppertone Girl that had titillated me as a young boy.

"Be careful, Mother," said her daughter from across the table. "Don't use any swear words."

I'd like to think I'd be this entertaining at 86.
