You're covered in cheetos
You don't wash your hair
The basement you live in
reeks of filth and despair

When Valentines Were Really, Really Mean
When?  I buy them and write "You Suck" and hand them out.  It gives me a warm feeling.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I can't remember the rest
But your mother's a whore, Trebeck

I'm going to print these out and swap them with the Star Wars valentines my kids are socially obligated to pass out in 1st and 4th grade tomorrow.

Not really.

Well maybe not really.

Nothing says "love" like a good raping on Valentine's day:

When Celia comes, 'tis earthquake hour

The bed vibrates like kettledrums

It is a grand display of power

when Celia comes

When Celia farts, my hasty nose

Sniffs up the fragrance from her parts

Shamed are the violets and rose

when Celia farts.

Once you were thin
But now you're a porker.
Might I recommend
An eating disorder?

Man, women reading books really seems to have hit a nerve with Victorians.  Stop with all the reading, you ladies!

What's the point in being anonymously snarky?

Maybe it is just me, but does the cat look like it is in blackface makeup in the first example with the old maid? Or is that its "oh shiat I'm about to be raped" look?

Your eyes would bug out too if Lyle Lovett in drag was holding you that way.

Wow, I haven't laughed so hard all day. Good comparison!

And lets not forget poison pen letters, the snail mail version of trolling.

There's no new thing under the Sun. Graffiti from Ancient Rome and Greece shows that people haven't really changed much since then. And even the Bible is full of some pretty rude insults.

You may be happier not knowing why Babylon, the Great Harlot, was called the City of the Seven Gates. Although it was also because it had seven gates.

Your Mother is a Hittite and your Father is a Moabite. I just learned that the name Moab means "Father" so presumably this insult means your Mother is a woman of loose morals and your Father is her Pimp-Daddy. That Biblical insult is positively Shakespearean, which may not be coincidence since the King James version was edited while Shakespeare was still alive.

The more things change ....

Say not, How is it that former days were better than these, for thou dost not inquire wisely after this.

The good old days were rotten to the core.

I learned about the old custom of insulting Valentine's Day cards year ago, but I never saw such fine examples of the printed Valentine's Day cards before. It would be cool to collect them. I wonder what sort of average price they fetch and where you might find them?

Oh, well. I have enough collections as it is, but I love 'em.

When? After the group of dudes you passed them out to gives you a group BJ?

The directness of "YOU ARE A NERVE DESTROYER" really made me laugh.

There's some in one of the links that are even better. I had no idea this workplace problem was as old as it is:
