Weird Vintage Untitled Document

St. Mary’s College, 1959—Phone-booth stuffing began in Durban, South Africa in the 1950s, when 25 students packed themselves into a telephone booth.  It quickly swept college campuses the world over, and soon students were skipping classes to practice and perfect their methods to set a new record.  Some students went on diets, and some students at M.I.T. attempted to use geometry and calculus to figure out the best method to achieve the highest efficiency for stuffing.  There were different sets of “rules” cited, either of all limbs needing to be in, or that one person inside must place an actual phone call for it to be a valid “stuff”.  

The fad died out by 1959, but it was soon replaced by Volkswagen stuffing (via BadFads and Sports Illustrated)
