From the WTF Dept.

I've been trawling through a lot of great 1950s' comics lately and been coming up with some real gems, such as this panel from "Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective." Dan's one of those assholes who wades in with his fists flying before knowing what's going on, and in this case mistaking a diving coach showing his protegee a manoeuvre, for a molestation attempt. But what gets me is what he calls her! Surely that meant something different back in 1951? Either that or he's even more of an asshole than I thought!
"Sorry, luv, I thought you was a fella!" 

Still, the coach does get the chance to return the slug on Dan's chin, and then everyone's pals!
