Elaine Stritch rests her bike, reads a note, almost causes a riot.      
NEW YORK, June 26—TOLD TO KEEP HER SHIRT ON – Blonde Elaine Stritch, understudy to Ethel Merman in the Broadway hit, “Call Me Madam,” wears halter and shorts which cause her arrest in Central Park. Today she was fined $1 and told by Magistrate Emilio Jones, “A beautiful girl like you could cause a small riot and cause a large crowd to collect by removing your shirt.” “Well,” she replied, “I was there all day and nothing happened.” (AP, 1951)

As far as I can tell the caption for this picture comes from a commenter on a bicycle forum and not from a newspaper.

Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.

We were talking about Shakespeare in English class and the tradition of throwing tomatoes when the actors are bad. Well it turns out, back then people thought tomatoes were poisonous, and so people would aim at the actors mouth and try to kILL THEM WHEN THEY WERE BAD AT ACTING OMG

Your teacher made that up. Or perhaps repeated something he/she had heard without verifying it. Either way, not great. A good question you could have asked would be “why were there so many tomatoes in England that they were cheap enough and so readily available for people to throw during plays if they were not being used for food at that time?”

He goes thirty years in the past and then thirty years in the future. And this is the third year in a row that I’ve seen one of these. Fake, fake, fake.
