What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 168: Happy Valentine’s Day?!?

13 Comments

Who am I to judge? Dogs seem much happier than most of the people I know… By Suckycards

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

I think Valentine’s Day is kind of bullshit. Of course, I can say that because I’m fortunate enough to spend my life with my Beloved, who makes me laugh and feel happy and safe, and all the good feelings. But still, I mostly associate V-Day with vapid, empty sentiments. That said, I really love most funny Valentine’s Day cards. Sure, some of them are in bad taste, some go too far (or way too far), and some don’t go far enough, but mostly, I think they’re extra funny. And Etsy is absolutely bursting with rude, unexpected, creative cards. And yes, I realize this post seems a bit premature, but if you, like me, want to purchase some of these wonderful cards, you’ll need to allow for shipping time!

By the way, today’s post is a bit on the adult side, so if profanity and graphic sexual references aren’t your thing, go check out these sexy chicken pictures instead.

I know a few people this would apply to, but I wouldn’t recommend giving them this card. By astackofpancakes

There’s nothing I can say about this that won’t get me in trouble! By TheFlamingoFactory

Listen: it is critical that you retain a little mystery, especially when it comes to the bathroom. You’ll thank me later. By

  3. Ha ha! I would much rather a humorous and smutty valentines card than a mushy, mawkish, lovey-dovey one. My husband and I don’t do valentines day at all but, if we did, I would snap up a couple of these cards.

  4. Hmmm. I don’t think so. there is enough smutt in this world without being crude on a card. Sorry I am just not into any of this bathroom talk

  5. I did check out the chicken page. Don’t you love how proud the cocks seem to be. ? They just know they are special.

    • They really are gorgeous. I have friends that have fancy chickens as pets, and they swear that they’re affectionate and have great personalities. Having only ever encountered the generic farm version, it’s hard to imagine, but these pictures make that much easier to believe.
