Rule 5 Sunday: Pre-Halloween Pinups

We’re just a few days away from one of the Lesser Feasts of Gluttony, sometimes referred to as All Hallows Eve or more commonly, Halloween. You would think that in all these years since the invention of the vacuum cleaner, some artist would have drawn a modern witch riding a newfangled electric broom instead of the old-fashioned straw brooms, but no luck. So we go with what we’ve got, which in this case is a pinup in the Vargas style, if not actually by Vargas himself.

Somehow, I don’t think she does windows.

Leading off this week is a newcomer to Rule 5 Sunday, Politically Incorrect Conservative with Sex, Feminists, And Self-Righteous Folks, followed by Goodstuff with the unlikely pairing of Elvira and Captain America. Ninety Miles from Tyranny checks in with Morning Mistress, Hot Pick, and Girls with Guns; Animal Magnetism brings us Rule 5 Friday and the Saturday Gingermageddon, and First Street Journal looks at women in the military having Fun Times In Iraq.

EBL’s herd of heifers this week includes Alyssa Milano, Sophie Gregoire, Mets fans, Sad Cubs fans, Seahawks & 49ers cheerleaders, Gloria Steinem, Vintage Hollywood Halloween, and Maureen O’Hara RIP.

A View from the Beach offers The Fish Chick – Brooke Thomas, Save Money, Shower with a Friend, Scientist Gets Plastered to Prove a Point, The Golden Girls Revisited, Shocking News from the James River, Six Things You Always Wanted to Know, Gone Fishin’, Can the Redskins Ground the Jets?, An Early Date for Prehistoric China-men, and The Pen May Be Mightier Than the Sword.

Postaldog returns with Elizabeth Marxs, Kendall Jenner, Avril Lavigne, Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore, and Alicia Arden.

Proof Positive’s Friday Night Babe is Demi Lovato, his Vintage Babe is Betty Hutton, Sex in Advertising is covered by Stella, and in addition to the Obligatory 49ers Cheerleader, this week we get her sister too. At Dustbury, it’s Rachel Platten and Holly Burt.

Thanks to everyone for their linkagery! Deadline to submit links to the Rule 5 Wombat mailbox for inclusion in next Sunday’s Rule 5 roundup is midnight on Saturday, November 1.

    Captain America replies “If Joe Biden belong to this Rule 5 ring around… I am sure he would explain everything you wanted to know about Elvira, “Mistress of the Dark”, (Cassandra Peterson) but were afraid to ask.”

    That’s equally famous pin-up artist George Petty, not Vargas or a Vargas-style.

    He was quite famous in his day. There was the 1950 film The Petty Girl and his nose art was on the Memphis Belle B-17. He was even on What’s My Line.

    I’d heard of him, but not in that connection. Certainly, I didn’t know he was one of the big names in the field.
