A single copy of the second number of The Old Fart, "a magazine for and by curmudgeons" appeared in the rack at the local tobacconist's just long enough to be snaffled up by a sharp-eyed Geister. This is not a pretty magazine, but it's a pretty funny one, and its contents reflect a more complex view of the world than its name might at first suggest. In this issue, which includes a poem by Elizabeth Smart, Aislin cartoons and a wide range of articles, the publishers are offering Old Fart merchandise like walking sticks, skin moisturizer, Old Fart golfing caps, and a book called Garage Sales for Profit and Fun. The Summer Curmudgeon Award went to John Crosbie. Cover price is $2.50. The Old Fart is published by Brinckman Publications, 191 St. George, Toronto Ni5R 2M6. Subs are $10: a perfect gift for the O.F. in any family.
