mirth response test

discovering the “mirth response test” series was my very own mirth response test (result: positive)

(this is totally something i can imagine the peeps at sterling cooper draper price doing – with don draper just sitting there, not enjoying it. thinking about something else. brooding.)


  1. Haha! Definitely made me smile…but what made me laugh was your Don Draper image–so true! I think the Mad Men writers need to read your blog. ;)

  2. Could you please tell me which edition of Life Magazine you got these pictures from? I am doing research on the The Mirth Response Test and I would like to see the original article and pictures. Thank-you
