Vintage Valentine Roundup: Masochistic, Murderous and Meaty

I’ve collected hundreds of vintage Valentine images, but I’m not currently in possession of the hard drive that houses them all. Here are a few that I recently saved to my desktop. Cutesy Valentines abound, so here are some that showcase the darker leanings of the holiday.

Welcome to the gun show…

Double pun action!

Let this be a lesson not to mix your puns:

Refusal is not advised…

Fiery sentiments…

Submissive Cow looks like the sad, daytime talk show guest of the animal kingdom.

In other words…”eat me.”

If someone could kindly explain this creature to me…

And the award for most depressing Valentine ever goes to…SUICIDAL SKUNK! He has not one, but TWO ways to off himself, ready and waiting. You can tell by the look on his face that he’s not going to snap out of this so easily. It’s hardcore.
