PFF & Postcard Scavenger Hunt #6 – My Funniest Postcards

This is my monthly Postcard Scavenger Hunt for August. If you are interested in participating, please read about how it works on my Announcing the Postcard Scavenger Hunt posting.

NOTE: You don't have to post today. The deadline is really at the end of the month so there is plenty of time to post. You also can put the permalink to an older post on the theme into Mister Linky. PLEASE only put a link here to a blogpost that fits the monthly theme--other links will be removed.

The theme for this month is My Funniest Postcards. Let's have fun with this theme. Pick out your funniest postcards and post them. Different people have different ideas of what is funny; just don't pick anything pornographic or likely to offend others. They can be comics, humorous photos, or whatever you think is REALLY funny.

My funniest postcards are ones that stand out in my mind from hundreds of funny, but forgettable, postcards. I always remember these.

This "Mary and Her Little Lamb" postcard is one of a series of old postcards on this subject. I have a couple of others that aren't quite so funny. This one was mailed in 1908. No publisher is listed.

This is a colorful linen comic made by Tichnor Bros., Inc.

This is a 1980s black and white comic by the artist Seth Feinberg. He also did other comics on postcard subjects. © Seth Feinberg's "No Danger to the Public Postcards."

This is a recent postcard by fotofolio. It is a 1981 photograph by © Michael Deines.

  1. I think they're all very funny and I'm not sure whether I have any to equal them - but I will have a search!

  2. Love Them! I've seen some other 2-D postcards but your's is the best. I also like the Generic Postcards that are just white with a bar code. My kind of humor.

  3. Wonderful postcards! Shocking! Happy PFF!

  4. I've got some fun postcards ssomewhere - I must dig them out. Please see this Ken Brwon postcard for a taste of funny, well, at least to me;

  5. How absolutely funny and adorable. I especially love the little lamb - tail and all.

  6. This one is going to be hard for me but I'll give it a try!

  7. Funny! Wish I had something to contribute.

  8. Postcardy, these are so wonderful! I posted for today. But I see Marie hasn't posted yet. Come visit me at Mary Tomaselli's Photos

  9. I found some cards in the end, so my post is up at last.

  10. I got my submission done, just under the wire. Mine isn't quite as shocking, but close.
