New Belt Buckle Has Secret Compartments for Money and Photographs

APPEARING to all outer evidence like the regular thing, a new belt buckle on the market has two concealed compartments for carrying money and other valuable objects. In addition, a photo of the wearer, or even his best girl, can be carried in secret, along with an identification card, as shown in the accompanying photo.

    A photo of the wearer? What, you mean like one of me when I had lots of hair?

    I’m thinking about the difficulties of showing the picture of your “best girl” to others. “Wait a sec while I whip this out.”

    You got me with that photo, Don!

    My wife has never liked the beard, so in the past five years I’ve only grown it for onstage use when it suited the character in the play.

    But a beard does help to hide the jowls!

    The only thing I don’t know is how a PERFECT likeness of me happened to be chiseled in stone on a cathedral in Paris where I took the photo . . . .

    I used to work in a luggage store that sold belts you could hide money in. You had to fold the bills up pretty small though.

    If there’s two compartments, you could have a picture of your best girl, and a picture of your second-best girl.
