More Satyr Madness!The other week we caught a glimpse of a satyr getting frisky with a Roman maiden.  Now, we have to deal with a rather plump satyr using a flame-haired flapper as a cigarette lighter. Maybe this is why so many women bobbed their hair in the 1920s — it was a protective measure against the speakeasy-crazed satyrs!
PS:  For all you Mencken aficionados, this is from our George Thompson Collection of H.L. Mencken!  We have oodles of Mencken materials, so come to the Peabody and research ‘em!
