I don’t know why these exist or who they’re supposed to appeal to, but here they are: the twelve most terrifyingly meat-related Valentine’s Day cards that might just turn you into a vegetarian.

I “veal” sick.

No thanks, Hannibal Lector.

I think I strained something from cringing too hard.

The one with the hotdog and the bun is the only one where the meat theme seemed even remotely relevant (if very juvenile).

… Still slightly better than the murderous ones?

“Hi. I’d like an arty Valentine’s please.”

“Er, have you got anything slightly less stalker-ish?’

I wonder if these are genuinely old, based on old cards, or just made to look old.

The last one about veal…eeewwww. I’m ashamed to admit that I love veal, even knowing it’s from baby cows that have been deprived of iron. I haven’t eaten it for years, though.

Posting a new comment here forced everything on this page up-to-date. The other one didn’t then become out of date. The new comment here was immediately reflected on both. So why did this one become out of date earlier?

Ed: but the other one did become out of date when I posted this comment here.

There seems to be no rhyme or reason. Sometimes a new comment gets added to the recent comments on every page, and sometimes only on the page it’s on and others don’t get updated until they get new comments of their own? Seemingly at random? Why?

And what must I do to have pages stay in proper sync again as they did from September 2020 through January 10 2022 and from a couple of weeks ago through yesterday?

I have a feeling I’ve said this before, but there’s something especially creepy about Valentine cards which feature apparent toddlers.

Toddlers with sharp knives, no less.

Was a young Hannibal Lector traumatized by these cards? Or Sweeney Todd?

The one with the dead fowl on the scale is shown to be a cheater, literally having his hand on the scale.

Somehow the veal one is the most horrific. I think the cherubic farmer has a knife in his pocket to turn that calf into veal right now. And it’s not even a good pun.

And what are small children doing with all those big knives, anyway?!

A knife? I thought that’s a bullet hole what’s portrayed on the calf’s head. Figuratively, perhaps, since the calf appears to be still alive. I understand “veal” is technically dead meat, so the illustration of this pun would have to specifically focus on the act and moment of slaughtering the calf.

Either a bullet hole of a captive bolt hole, either way horrid.

I think that hole in the calf’s head is part of the card design, maybe to hold it together or put a ribbon/tag through it? Either way, yeah, a little too on point.

I hope that’s a brad (?) which means you can pivot the calf’s head back and forth, or to hold the card together

If it was to hang it by, couldn’t they have put it up in the black sky, where it not only wouldn’t have shown up, it wouldn’t look like a sniper just took out baby cow.
