Is this funny? Insulting? Neither?

I was sucked into this 1970s DC questionnaire by its tin ear hip-talk. Seriously, every time comics tried to break out the groovy speak back in the day, they sounded like poorly-briefed narcs.

The craziest thing (or maybe it isn’t) comes in question five. I like how “Black People” are listed right between “Pollution” and “Space Flights” as topics of interest. I realize that no offense was meant, but I find that sequence rather, um, odd. Perhaps this fits in all too well with the “Black Savage” bit from yesterday’s FOOM post.
