Flappers must never be FAT.

They must love attention – 

and HATE chaperones.

They must be exceedingly young.

(Somewhere between 16 and 20)

And wear bobbed hair.

Flappers should be clothed in 

Short dresses and LOTS of rouge.

They must absolutely ADORE

Lemon cokes and soda squirts – 

And not have a speck of grey matter.
