I just picked up this poster of Farrah Fawcett on eBay, still wrapped up in it's original packaging, for a shockingly low $22. Needless to say I was thrilled, as this photo of Farrah remains one of the most iconic '70s images and she was one of the most ridiculously beautiful women to ever walk the planet. When I was in 3rd grade, a friend of mine had a spiral bound notebook with this picture on the cover and we'd both stare at it. I'm sure it was the moment in my life when I decided that nipples were so amazing, as well.
Farrah was everywhere at the time. I recall The Unknown Comic (a stand up comedian who's gimmick was wearing a bag over his head) did a funny bit on "The Gong Show" where he said, "Here, I'm going to do an impression of Farrah Fawcett" which led to him putting a bag over his head with a crudely drawn portrait of her on it. He followed with an impression of "Leaky Fawcett" and started spitting water through the hole in her mouth. This was high comedy for me at the time.
Here's to you, Farrah! You are missed and admired.
