Funny Vintage Valentines
The good people over at the online Vintage Valentine Museum acquire and painstakingly catalog vintage Valentine cards. Their work is commendable, and without them we would not be able to enjoy these gems from the past. For every innocent and cherubic retro Valentine’s card though, is one that didn’t exactly age well. The messages and images might have been cute in the 1930s, but today…well, see for yourself. This collection of mildly horrifying vintage cards may give you Valentine’s Day nightmares so don’t say I didn’t warn you.

And when I thought it couldn’t get worse, this happened.
Why do I have a sneaking suspicion that this cat’s “Token of Affection” is actually a giant turd left over from taking a dump somewhere in your house?
I think this cat loves her tuna, not you. Typical.
The dog meat trade is illegal…right?
Nowadays, we’ve watched too much CSI to find living in a trunk with your stalker, I mean, Valentine, to be a selling point.
This kid is understandably concerned about how this monkey got into his bedroom.
Oh look, we found Don Draper’s childhood Valentine’s card.
Well, that sounds like a recipe for a healthy relationship.
Looks like she’s on the road to rehab and jail time rather than everlasting love.
This card comes with a free restraining order!
