No clock, eh? That’s the sequel you’re thinking of: THE BIG TIMEPIECE.
When this edition was published, they HAD to put a giant squid on the cover, otherwise people would have expected this to be about an Esther Rantzen TV series featuring Sheena Easton. (Yes, I AM showing my age!)
So they fought a war over re-useable cloth diapers vs disposable Pampers? (guy with symbolic cloth headgear)?
Or tv remotes vs having to get up and do it at the tv? (gloved hand w/apparatus)?
Or the attempt to remove yellow from traffic lights? (colored circles)
Or stopping politicians from using a favorite campaign theme? (snake)
