Talking Inanimate Objects

This was something DC got into in the late 1950s and early 1960s, whereby some inanimate object or other would tell "its story". Here are just two examples from Wonder Woman #86 and #88 (1957).

These are not even the worst examples; far more execrable was a series called "Tales of Kryptonite", where a chunk of that metal would narrate a story complete with pleas for Superman to stay away before he gets hurt. Extreme silliness.
