8th pic down, 1st page with the witch. Does she really have tiny little reins for her broom?

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*

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.

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!!!!!!

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

"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.

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