flash cards

I have these funky weird flashcards ...
I picked them up at the
senior center thrift store

I've been gessoing them and including them as a thank you note to packages that go out
But some are just so weird.
Like these about women:

"She works very rapidly, but her garrilous tongue nullifies the effect of this good quality"

"Take your girl home by the circuitous route"

Really?

Or: "She had a special knack for serving condiments in new and unusual receptacles"

And sprinkled in there are a few about communism and junk:

"The protagonist of communism was brought before the investigating committee"

"The FBI devotes particular attention to groups that seem subversive"

"The ideology of communism cannot be accepted in a democracy"

The good old days, right?

I have lots of flash cards, but have never seen any like these. They are really unique, quirky, and definitely a sign of their times. I think whatever you paid for that box of flash cards, they are truly fantastic.
