I went to Oberlin Ohio to visit a friend. She had a 1985 "Teen Set" magazine special issue of "Topless Hunks." These hunks were begging to be molested, so I took the initiative with my scissors and glue stick.
Like a wood carver releasing an eagle from a block of pine, I've extracted the spirit of the Hunks. I communicated with the Hunks while I was transforming them. You can tell by the looks on their facechests. D TONZA was the most excited to be collaged.
I set rules for myself. Each 'Unk would be cut from 1 picture only. Each 'Unk would include at least 1 nipple. The first four were made postcard size. The last 5 were not.
The 'Unks were made from:
OMHO = Tom Howell
HN TRAVOLT = John Travolta
OB LOWER = Rob Lowe
EL J. FOX = Michael J. Fox
D TONZA = Tony Danza
ITCH LOAD = Mitch Gaylord
SKIN RASH = Christopher Atkins
MOBY THIS = (Can't remember)
BATCO = Scott Baio
