Look! It’s a picnic table! It’s a family-sized rocking chair! It’s a playpen for toddlers! It’s a…bar???

This multifunctional patio furniture designed by Lester Walker was featured in Popular Science back in 1970. I like the whimsy of it, but I can’t get past the models. In the immortal words of Heath Ledger’s Joker, “Why so serious?” I find it highly improbable that anyone could maintain such a straight face sitting in something like this.

Oh well, keep on rocking…sometimes Adultitis is hard to crack.
