While poking around YouTube for a clip of Eddie Haskell sucking up to Mrs. Cleaver to go with a post I wrote earlier, I ran across a scene from Leave it to Beaver that I thought the National Organization for Women would really enjoy.

This clip features Mr. Cleaver teaching the Wally about the different responsibilities of men and women when it comes to cooking — and left-wing feminists certainly won’t like it — but there’s also a bonus kick to the groin for the nanny state safety police: dad uses asbestos gloves to handle the dishes:

Update: I got a tweet from somebody saying that the feminists will actually like the clip, because in the end Ward tears down his original point — but I think by then they’d be way too distracted by the asbestos thing for that to sink in.

    Leave It To Beaver was on at 4:30pm M-F as reran reruns back in Iowa growing up.

    My mother taught 3rd grade for 20 years on her second round of teaching had one class called her Miss Landers from Leave It To Beaver, she got a kick out of it.

    I'm more shocked by the "asbestos gloves". I guess the 50's caveman had no concern for Mesothelioma. Perhaps the trial lawyer had yet to be invented?

    The discovery of Mesothelioma and the Personal Injury Attorney were just over the horizon……likely waiting in a tree next to the trail to the asbestos mine !
