Remembering Abigail Von Hunter (1901-2009)

It is with great sadness that I report  the death of noted advice columnist and nude rights activist Abigail Von Hunter. Born in 1901, Miss Hunter began her daily column in 1936 and continued until the day she died, at age 108. In fact, she has pre-written columns way into the 2020s, so you'll be still be seeing plenty of her for years to come. Abigail was best known for her rivalry with her evil twin sister Anne Von Hunter and her likelyhood to appear in a satin dress and white apron or nude and/or around nude people throughout her career. Miss Hunter was always smiling–happy to be alive no matter what she was wearing!
The column was syndicated by McNaughty Naughty Syndicate from 1936 until 1976, when it moved to The American Unitard Syndicate. Dear Hunter's current syndication company claims the column is known for its "uncommon common sense, youthful perspective and naked world view." Miss Hunter's column also appeared online from 1996-1999 on the late, lamented website ASK US ANYTHING. Rest in peace, Abigail.

Whoops, I mean her left. I mean- AAACK!

In between her notepad and her 'boudoir photography.'

Not sure what you are referring to.

But thanks for reading!

Do you know the guy in the photo? I think that was from Abby's column about preventing anal warts. :)
