Gee. Nothing like weapons to give a girl goosebumps. What do you think about these old Valentines Day cards? Check out the first one on the left with a little boy holding an axe saying,“Chop! Chop! You Will Be Mine!” I say, “No thanks, buddy! You’re 100% creepy!”
To the right we have a cowboy/puppy dog with a rope and a gun saying,“I’m Looking for a Partner!” Bet he goes home alone on Valentines Day!
The old valentine to the left has nothing more sinister than a blue bird on it but the message conveys creepiness,“I’d Like to ‘Land’ You”. Not sure how to interpret that. If I got any of these Valentines Day cards when I was single, I’d go to my room and hide! Ooops! Then I might end up with a card something like this last one,“Don’t Hide From Me, Valentine!”
Does anyone still trade Valentines Day cards at school any more? Are they as loaded with threats and double meanings as these old cards?
More coming next week! Got any to add?
