    The Museum of Questionable Medical Devices in St. Paul, Minnesota has a rather large collection of these devices, including the very disturbingly named, Recto Rooter.

    That’s right, I forgot they had those there. I used to live right across the river from the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices when it was still at St. Anthony Main. That was a great museum.

    Y’know, I still can’t figure out what happened to St. Anthony’s. It used to be a fantastic place. Now it’s just sad and deserted.

    Fortunately, the museum’s collection is still intact. They just moved it into the St. Paul Science Museum.

    Wow, no comments relating this device to the prison story on the cover?!? I’m not sure if I’m proud or disappointed…

    That cover is hilarious.

    Not only is the “lust-crazed convict” wearing a suit, but the “warden’s wife” is both anatomically implausible and not quite dressed in the way one would expect a “warden’s wife” to dress at the time. For one thing, she doesn’t appear to be wearing a bra, and for another her breast seems to be growing out of the middle of her chest.

    Also, “welcome relief”?
