Chentzilla On the second-to-last, read "If you would not be a sphincter still..."

Akktri "I think of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness cover every time I look at the 8th card, maybe because the witch is wearing a green dress and is flying into the night."

Actually, it reminds me more of a Miller High Life logo.

LittleDollClaudia I have always loved these types of cards, along with the other vintage style Halloween items that pop up on those auction sites around Halloween. I started collecting them a while ago, but now I am looking at them in a whole new light.

Capt.Confederacy Check out how the moon is leering at the witch in green.

alittlebirdytoldmeso Someone should tell Phanto that you never go ass to mouth.

Shadow40000 Strange... I was listening to Smashing Pumpkins as I was reading this. o_o

Aduross If I had to guess, the "red ear" might refer to how one's ears redden when they blush. I have to say, these are pretty off-the-wall cards. I'd say this is definite proof that Hallowe'en was a lot scarier back when and that children always have been and always will be the scariest beings in existence.

Flashman on the hail hallowe'en card what is the sombrero wearing midget doing to that kid

Geminate I want to talk to you about Turkey Beings on television. I think that there are too many Turkey Beings on television. Turkey Beings shouldn't even be on television. Why do we have Turkey Beings on television? What? Turkey Beans? Oh...never-mind.

What the hell is a Turkey Bean? Are they on television? Oh...never-mind.

Beardy Goodness That little girl from "chums" is clearly forcing her cat to look at that cat head impaled on the broom. "If you aren't my chum FOREVER, you get that TOO!!!!!!

McFly I think the “good luck” would have to go to the elf to either a) not get bitch-slapped for hanging off of the pumpkin or b) not falling on his ass for being stupid.

The “good cheer” would have to go to the miniature grim reaper. Maybe he is taking the “goth” thing too seriously and just needs a big hug. Maybe if he hunted with the oompa loompas for red ears, death would be a little more cheerful.

Yes, yes she does. I went back up and checked. Why? No fricking clue *laughs*

It looks like on the picture they're shucking corn (probably Indian corn) which can be different colors (including red.) The only thing I can think of is that red ears have some sort of signifigance between two people (hence the "if we were both here") Without knowing, though, I got nothing else.

Anyone else notice the typo on the Chestnut card? "Screemed" No. Nonono. And to an English major, that's terrifying *laughs*

Julio Now look at what I just typed:
"BelieBe"... Damn my ortography...
Sep 25th, 2008 01:34 AM
Julio I think of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness cover every time I look at the 8th card, maybe because the witch is wearing a green dress and is flying into the night. Also, I beliebe those suckers in white robes with pumpkins are nothing more than KKK acolytes.

seesawbooy They should make posters of these
Sep 24th, 2008 07:28 PM
Nick The last card did it for me.
Sep 24th, 2008 06:28 PM
J. Tithonus Pednaud My all time favorite card is from the early 70's and depicts Frankenstein's Monster violating a terrified pumpkin.

HeroliciousDeBlanc "For a High Happy Halloween".... need I say more?

King Credo Chestnuts are totally dicks. One time I was reading a book report in front of the class and Wally Chestnutterson pulled my pants down in front of everybody.

Icculus could be...I'm really to lazy to google it.

It's creepy because there are some mystery letters in the that we just don't know. Maybe they are letter that shun't be spoken lest ye feel the wrath of creepy hallowe'en children.

At what point did we decide to drop the apostrophe in Hallowe'en. I think I'm going to start right now and bring it back. On the other hand why is it needed.

I think it's an abbreviation of All Hallows Eve. Hallows Evening? Hallow E'en = Halloween.

I'm with you on bringing it back, much creepier.

Dungeonbrownies Gosh, i cant believe people used to buy these things. How do you use em? slip them into people's candy or under their doors? Because I'd be pissed if i asked for candy and got a card.
