If we ruled the world, puns would be the official language. You know, the “orange you glad I didn’t say banana?” variety that the very young and the very elderly alike find hilarious. Even though we don’t fit into either of those categories anymore/yet, there’s no linguistic feat we love more than a good pun.
Which makes us nostalgic every Valentine’s Day. There is quite simply no better treasure trove of puns than vintage Valentines. Usually, it’s the rose-lipped lovelies and doily-decorated beauties that get all the nostalgic attention from vintage-card aficionados. But to our mind, these old puns prove that they just don’t make ’em like they used to.
Here are some of our favorites, along with our best wishes for a Happy Valentine’s Day!
