Simpler times...

It's funny how old things crop up in conversation. A while ago I was talking to somebody and Where's Wally was mentioned. That reminded me of something from when I was much younger. I was sure than in a Where's Wally book I had as a young 'un there was a cheeky topless woman hidden on the beach scene page. So I went online to try and find it.

I found the official site, the annoyingly titled 'Find Waldo'. On a side note, I'm not going to get into the whole Wally/Waldo thing, there's plenty of that on t'interwebs, although it doesn't take long for the American to be put in their place (case in point here, in the comments).
Anyway, the beach scene was indeed one of the three scenarios included on the site. Imagine my surprise, though, when I found the woman's bikini top had been redrawn on her, instead of its original place on her towel!

Obviously, this caused me to worry about the memories of my youth that had apparently become quite disturbingly warped. But then I found the original book from 1988 at my parents' house. And my memory had served me 100% completely, absolutely, spot on right. Don't worry, I got a scan:

And, if needed, here's the proof that it's from the book.

Right, now I'm off to rewatch some Disney films to find the supposed hidden porn.
