Weirdo Vintage Comics Taken Way Out Of Context

Comics are often already weird to begin with, but they're even weirder when taken out of context. We're not really sure what the artists here were thinking, and we'll probably never know! We've got even more weird vintage comics here for whoever wants 'em!

Fake Vintage Ads That Bring The Absurdity

We're ashamed to admit it, but we were pretty convinced by these skillfully composed parodies of vintage ads. Some of them are just realistic enough that they emulate the zany promotional material of the fifties and sixties. Take comfort in the fact that "Potato Fudge" doesn't really exist - and enjoy the humor while you're at it.

Vintage Ads That Range From Weird To Offensive

Advertising is absolutely unavoidable these days. We're inundated by promotions on television, our email inboxes, and everywhere on the internet. Sometimes we wish that these attempts at snagging our money were a little bit more creative. Perhaps a little more like the advertising of yesteryear. These bizarre ads are a sort of trippy advertising time capsule. Some of their weirdness comes from the actual products (sauna pants?) and then there are the absolutely inappropriate ads that would never receive an "okay" in this day and age. But they're all pretty damn entertaining.

Twitter Thread Explains The Weirdness Of Vintage Christmas Cards

We usually use Twitter to waste time on funny tweets, but every now and then it provides some serious knowledge to our weak brains. This particular thread explains the bizarre nature of old Christmas cards - and shares some seriously freaky examples. This is some serious pre-Hallmark shit. We just wish we could find these at our local stationery store.

'Waiting For Dad' Is The Ominous Vintage Meme You Didn't Know You Needed

We've all seen this meme, entitled "Waiting For Dad," floating around the internet quite a bit by now, but you probably didn't know that it stems from an advertisement for Arrow Casual Wear in LIFE Magazine from 1954 that has since been edited to include the family menacingly brandishing knives. A lot of stuff from the 1950s was pretty WTF anyway, so it seems fitting that people started editing this meme to be a little more dark!
