    This became the basis for a lot of erotic comedy of the time, when the male stocking salesman showed up at the prospective female customer’s house while her husband was at work, ranking right up there with a milkman doing his regular deliveries of “fresh warm cream” in the morning. :-D
    There’s even a “Tijuana Bible” story devoted to the stocking salesman concept.

    Pat Flannery » Vaguely disturbing and sophomoric at the same time. If it’s warm I don’t know how “fresh ” it is.

    One wonders how well luxury items sold at this point in time. I have a suspicion that few silk stocking sellers were raking in the dough.

    (PS John, very fresh milk and cream are always warm, as cows don’t produce pre-chilled milk.)

    (PPS: I thought the joke was funny.)

    Charlene » Duh! Not delivered warm though (but you knew that).
