Intentional or Unintentional? for 6/2

To refresh you on the game, the gist is that I show you an instance of something in comics I found humorous, and you tell me if the humor was intentional or unintentional!

Today’s instance is the infamous 1951 issue of Batman (#66) that featured Batman and Joker competing in “pulling boners.”

Thanks to scansdaily for the pics!

Boner is clearly a slang term for a blunder/error. But by 1951, was that the ONLY slang term for it? The humor value clearly hinges upon that – did the use of the word “boner” as slang for a male erection come into usage by 1951 or no?

Beats me! That’s why I leave it to you folks.
