Dear Penthouse Letters:

"I always thought those letters about gorgeous starlets dropping from the sky in malfunctioning helicopters and looking for strange sexual encounters while others take pictures were fake... until it happened to me."

From Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #55,
reprinted in Showcase Presents Aquaman Volume 1

What really makes this panel work are the phrases bolded for emphasis ("UNUSUAL WAY", "PICTURES") and Jimmy's go-with-the-flow thought balloon ("She sure is pretty! Why not?")

And since it's a Jimmy Olsen story, things only get weirder from there as Jimmy continues to use Aquaman's powers to fix contrived situations and an ancient sea creature falls in love with Jimmy.
