Too much fun

This postcard offers the pathetic excuse for not writing, “having too much fun”. We haven’t had much fun recently, but I have been watching some Youtube videos featuring people exploring the most remote desert locations, old charcoal kilns, a stagecoach stop, stuff like that. No masks, no protestors, just warm desert sun. Maybe I’ll mail […]

Pretty bad NSFW chicken joke

A sadist, a masochist, a murderer, a necrophile, a zoophile and a pyromaniac are all sitting on a bench in a mental institution. “Let’s have sex with a cat?” asked the zoophile. “Let’s have sex with the cat and then torture it,” says the sadist. “Let’s have sex with the cat, torture it and then […]

She has a point there!

I have a batch of these “comic cards” from the 50’s. The topless ladies featured all seem to have inflamed nipples and areolas. What’s up with that?
