Vintage Postcard Humor

Some things never change, but it certainly seems like what's considered funny does change. These vintage cartoon postcards are probably from the late 40s, early 50s, and were sent by the Mystery Sender. In fact, the one on the lower left included a recipe for moonshine on the back!

They are not at all "politically correct", and I love the goofy double entendres in all of them. If you like this genre, check out Postcard Funnies. It's a blog with nothing but these kinds of postcards.


  1. It reminds me of walking down to Santa Claus Lane in Carpinteria to the joke shop. They had a cigarette behind glass in a box and it said, "Break In Case of Emergency." And a whoopee cushion. As a kid I thought it was a weird store. Oh, and let's not forget the rubber vomit you could put on the floor. It looked real.

  2. I LOVE CARTOONS!!! Even old, dumb ones. though I must say that I couldn't read the captions of the toons because of their small size.
