I've been on a bit of a kitsch jag, and collected images of many a tragically ridiculous and astonishing postcard. These are all ca. 1940s-50s.

oh, wow. lol

These are fascinating. The depth and nature of the commentary that screams into my head on seeing the second through fourth is actually broader than that of the first -- but the first is so uniformly "wrong" by today's standards that I may be losing some of what I'd see in serious contemplation.

Although I could see that first one being made now, put up on an obscure webpage no one will look at, and come back to haunt the politician who made it in several year. Some people still think that's hilarious.
