Head-scratchers continued throughout the ’80s. The 1986 cover featured former Miss Delaware USA Lynn Taylor staring hypnotically at a 3-foot Capriotti’s sub (see cover on opposite page). In 1988 editors got a little silly with categories: Best Way to Feel Flintstones Fever? Most Unappetizing Bagels? Most Pointless Movie Preview? Apparently, someone saw a few extra seconds of “Stand and Deliver.” Chill, Holmes.
Delaware Today went through something of a sexual awakening during the ’80s and ’90s. In 1984 the editors said Not for Kidds, a store in Sussex, was the best adult shop for “apparel, cards, lotions and ‘toys’ guaranteed to add more sizzle to your life than any sunburn.” In 1995 they recognized Birds and Bees for its superior body jam and pleasure whips. In 1994, editors handed out the Respectable X-Rated Humor award to The Delmarva Beach Bull, which they described “like gobbling peanuts in the form of truly tasteless jokes.”
