1970's jokes and tricks

I received this photo the other week of my mates wonderful collection of ghoulish jokes and tricks from the 1970's with their original header cards.These are great fun ,remember a lot of these myself,always loved a visit to the local joke shop to see what would be a funny joke to buy or something to freak out who ever.

Thanks Steve.

That jumping cut finger sure as hell looks like a cut out tongue to me!

I used to buy the Mad Hatter ones a lot. I remember one that you put in a hot drink (sugar lumps I think)to dissolve and it had a plastic spider or similar thing in. As my dad was always my victim of choice for these things (itching powder, farting powder, exploding cigs etc), into his tea it went. The exclamation I waited for never came. I looked in the empty cup and it was indeed empty. Needless to say, I said nothing.

I'd really like to get hold of the Mad Hatter magic tricks in their original packaging. Do let me know if your friend ever fancies selling any!
