Tardy the Man Pony, and other crappy vintage toys that never existed

The artwork of Randy Regier channels the dime store toy aisles and the flashy comic book advertisements of the 1950s and 1960s. His toys promise rip-roaring thrills on their colorful packages...and deliver confusion, horror, and crushing disappointment once de-boxed.

    The artwork of Randy Regier channels the dime store toy aisles and the flashy comic book advertisements of the 1950s and 1960s. His toys promise rip-roaring thrills on their colorful packages...and deliver confusion, horror, and crushing disappointment once de-boxed. Let's take a look at some of Randy's unabashedly rip-off playthings like... Tardy the Man Pony. I find Tardy to be really disturbing, although much worse exists out there. Something about Tardy just seems sinister and unwholesome.

Interesting facts you probably don’t know…

Naming your city can be difficult. Especially when you have to worry about what name would attract quality residents and visitors. Apparently the stress of this was too much for the people of "No Name," CO. It seems they just gave up. What it lacks in creativity, it makes up for in not being "Hell" or "Boogertown." We believe the people of "Hygiene," CO, however, knew exactly what they were doing. Best smelling residents ever!

"WHY" seems to be more of an enigma than a place to avoid completely, but if someone says to you “Let’s go visit Why, AZ,” your response will likely be “Why?” And if you have to ask, don’t you already know the answer? Still, the tourism board of Why has to be doing just a bit better than the folks of "Nothing, AZ." What’s to see there? Nothing. We believe the tourism of Whynot, MS must be experiencing true success. After all, why not visit "Whynot?"

This is Boogertown, NC. We have a pretty good idea what this town is named after, but we don’t get the attraction. Technically, it’s just a “populated area” and probably not an official, full-sized town. But really, how does a place known as Boogertown get populated at all? They even celebrate during the holidays with festive signs saying “Have a Boogertown Christmas!” Depending on how cold and flu season is going, we may. Boogertown. Only in America.

Intercourse, PA. This is probably the one place we think should keep its weird name. It might be a fun place to visit. It might even be as fun as Intercourse, AL, but since Intercourse, AL is in closer proximity to Climax, AL, we can only assume they’re having more fun there. There’s evidence though, that Intercourse, PA might not be as fun as it sounds. It’s close to Virginville and Blue Ball, PA and that may mean something.

If you don’t want to travel somewhere boring or even heavenly, perhaps a trip to Hell would be up your alley. That’s easy to do, since Hell happens to be in Michigan. We can’t figure why the name "Hell" was ever considered, but it’s not original. There’s also a "Hellhole, Indiana." Technically, it’s considered a “populated area” more than a town, but even so, how does an area called that attract anyone? Your guess is as good as theirs!
