You say "naughty" like it’s a bad thing…

January 14, 2013

Don’t know what it is that I love about these Anne Taintor Vintage revisited funnies, but they never fail to crack me up. All images from, where you can find a plethora of hiliarously retro products. And yes, I am a customer!

 Facebook is always good for a few laughs, especially the way people use it. There are the folks who post fantastically flattering photos of themselves repeatedly, or those who post what I call “image management”, such as “I’m enjoying fine Cuban cigar with a crystal snifter of fantastically expensive French brandy while wearing my designer smoking jacket” (they’re usually from Kansas, too), and of course, those who publicly post what in the old days would be private notes of endearment to their loved ones, but are now shared globally, much like a cat spraying its territory.

Yes, that ham says all that to me.

I fear that this is the kind of mother I would be. Oh, my kids would be so effed up! (Just look at Riley.)

 I wonder how many women are tempted to stay stuff like that. If one of them is you, well, come sit by me!

 I love it when people abide by the laws.

Watch any TV show from the 1950s and 60s and this will make perfect sense. It’s no wonder that Librium and Valium came into their own during that period.

And who hasn’t done THIS? Oh, that moment of terror, when the realization hits you. Thank goodness I haven’t done this recently.

I have a couple friends I feel this way about. And I hardly drink at all.

Don’t say “naughty” like it’s a bad thing….

No explanation needed.

If you’ve got a favorite retro saying, let’s hear it!

  1. I too am a Ann Traitor Fan. I always loved Jessica Rabbit from Who framed Roger Rabbit when she says “I am not bad, I am just drawn this way” (She is a cartoon character).

    To be, or not to be. That is the question.

    I have seen a few of those on Facebook before but had no idea where they came from.

    Some of them I really identify with.

    Thanks for telling me about them.

    Too funny! My menopausal brain can not remember any sayings!
