Feed Twiggy.

Original metal badge, made in Japan, c. 1966/67. 3.5cm. diameter. The slogan arose from the early controversy surrounding Twiggy's figure, thought by some to be a negative influence on young women. Marshall McLuhan famously stated that "Twiggy is an X-ray, not a picture", and bumper stickers and badges reading "Forget Oxfam, Feed Twiggy!" began appearing. At the time Twiggy felt that she got the blame for inventing anorexia, but claimed that she "always ate sensibly - being thin was in my genes… I just couldn't put on weight." Faint scratches, o/w Very Good plus.
