Reply Mitch February 14, 2012 WTF indeed. Is it just me, or is there a lot of violent imagery?… Reply Anna February 14, 2012 Hahaha….wow. Very WTF!! Reply Ginger February 14, 2012 The eyes of the kid serving his heart on a tray will haunt me to the end of my days. Strange, strange images. Reply Rascal Pigeonhound February 14, 2012 This is delightful in the most bizarre way possible. Wow. Everything from suicide to light bondage to cannibalism. Who knew this was such a crazy holiday? Reply ap February 15, 2012 The suicide skunk is a Hallmark. Reply shanti thomas February 20, 2012 where did they come from? The one about You built a wall so fast and strong But with my Magic Ray It wont last long…. well all of them presume edwardian or earlier or contemporary up date? Reply Joe September 25, 2012 I think the fourth from the bottom gives Love a bad name Reply ThatDarnCat October 3, 2012 I can see how some of the images might be construed as violent by namby-pamby milktaost liberals who don’t have the intestinal fortitude to think for themselves. Reply mandy January 30, 2013 Do we really have to turn everything into a “liberals” comment? I’m pretty sure the weirdness of these cards crosses party lines. Reply aquamarina October 5, 2012 I was laughing out loud reading these cooky Valentines! Can you imagine receiving one of these now a days?! LOL! Reply mandy_Reeves November 15, 2012 EWWW did not need to see “angry psycho clown officer” right before bed. These are signs of the times though, these cards. If you have ever watched a Bugs Bunny or Looney Tunes cartoon or ones made by Tex Avery….you’ll know these were very bawdy and raucous times. If you couldn’t drink liquor or had bad memories of WW1, you needed something to make you laugh! Also…these are waaaay tame compared to those e card things everyone sticks all over face book. Reply gardenwife February 15, 2014 These are most certainly not vintage, but created in satire and done in period style. Reply Kipling February 22, 2014 No, “Gardenwife”, these are all real. I bought them off ebay and scanned them into my Flickr page. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
