LaCoste Crocodile or Izod Alligator? Either way, this illustration pokes fun at the preppy subculture. 
Merriam -Webster defines preppy as “a student at or a graduate of a preparatory school” as well as “relating to or being a style of dress characterized especially by classic clothing and neat appearance.”
This same dictionary defines turkey as not just a gallinaceous bird, but also, “failure, flop; especially : a theatrical production that has failed,” “three successive strikes in bowling,” and “a stupid, foolish, or inept person.”
