  1. Chicalmo, the original Chi-town!

  2. “For when your baby just won’t stop crying we introduce this wonderful product called The Butane Binky!

  3. Chicalmo–makes me think of chics and the Alamo.

    What’s with the surprised look on her face? According to the narration, the acheology duo were astounded by discovering her. Maybe that safety pin holding her top together isn’t so safe.

  4. Who’d have thought that if you went in search of South American gold you’d find a caucasian redhead woman in lost jungle cities. It explains why the conquistadors went let alone the adventurers after them. I’d go.

  5. This explains why babies are always spitting out their pacifers.

  6. Historically speaking, the ancient peoples of this side of the planet were awaiting the arrival of their gods, who were in their legends – ‘white’.

  11. (Uh, I didn’t really mean to imply that pale skin and light hair is a flaw. I meant Quetzecoatl was flawless compared to other gods in his pantheon, who typically were depicted as having deformities in their otherwise human shapes.)
