Do YOU Still Need Something For February 14th? How About [Serial Killer] Valentine’s Day Cards?

l5jkrif

It’s February, which can only mean one thing: Valentine’s Day. Between all the chocolate and the candle light dinners, surely there is more to this “holiday” than just saying “Love is in the air,” right? If you think like me, and go with the literal approach, nothing says “you have my heartmore than your dearest enemy’s heart in a heart shaped box [see above] with a nice card to go with it. But what kind of card could go with something so..messy? Luckily for you, I have you covered – with some lovely [serial killer themed] Valentine’s Day cards, that you can actually buy! Before I share the cards with you, the horrific theme here is somewhat appropriate given the holiday’s true dark origins. In ancient Rome, during the dates of February 13th to 15th, the Romans celebrated something they called “The Feast Of Lupercalia.” During this time, the Roman men would sacrifice both a goat and a dog, followed by whipping their women with the hides of the animals they had just killed to.. well, show them how much they cared.. remember, the Roman women were okay with this, because they believed this would help in fertility! Don’t worry if this all sounds strange to you, because it definitely sounds strange to me. Now, shall I show you these killer cards? I suppose nothing says “I love you” like a man who cuts up bodies and saves their heads in his fridge.. right?

Serial Killer Two Sheet Set: order this set here!


Of course, this is not even close to all the cards on the Etsy site. Calling herself “the Anti-Hallmark,NonComposCards also has Christmas cards, and even Birthday cards available. Of course, being as Valentine’s Day is this week, you might have to get something from an actual Hallmark, because I somehow doubt these would arrive on time.. [unless you happen to live extremely close to the creator] The real question is: would You buy any/all of these cards for Your loved one? Why or why not? Let me know over in the comment section!

*NOTE: Because of the time of year, I have been working a lot more lately [four, sometimes five, days a week – all day] because this is the time that Colleges/Universities begin sending out acceptance letters. With this in mind, I am – unfortunately – not as available to write a new post every second day like I did when I started warrenisweird. I feel that I should share this information because I have been asked why I seem to disappear from here for almost weeks at a time. If wanted, let me know in the comments, and I can write a more detailed/explanatory post*

in case you missed it: Charles Manson is getting MARRIED!

seriously — let that sink in for a minute: 80 year old Charles Manson is marrying a 26 year old “follower” of his named “Star“. I really wish I could say I’m kidding about this one. In case you need a little refresher course on our Groom, he’s not exactly boyfriend material. he’s mostly known for reminding America that people are inherently terrible at heart — considering his “followers” went out and butchered seven people in the summer of 1969. Though the murders were technically carried out by Manson’s so-called ‘family’ of followers, it was ultimately him who became infamous for them; especially since he was the brains of the whole operation.

The other day though, it was announced that our friend Charlie is set to marry one of those “followers”, a 26-year-old woman who has spent the last decade trying to free him! [did I mention people are fucked?] BUT even if Manson is locked up in prison — the marriage license has gone through and officially been approved; and the wedding is likely to take place sometime next month! I mean what. the. actual. fuck.

“I love him,” said bride-to-be Afton Elaine Burton, who goes by her nickname “Star”. “I’m with him. There’s all kinds of things.” Yeah. She sounds totally normal. Good find, Charles!

If this wasn’t strange enough news for you, Manson isn’t typically allowed to have visitors, but an exception for the marriage is being made [because why not?], and the “lovers” will be allowed to invite ten non-inmate guests. Star has even gone so far as to say that this marriage will give her access to information she’s not able to look at under the title of Manson’s girlfriend, which she hopes to use in an effort to free her “hero”.. because we should totally be giving her access to that kind of stuff..

The most troubling thing about all of this, [oh yes, we’re not done] is that Manson‘s “power” is pretty much mind control, since [as we all know] his whole deal during his days at large was convincing young women to do terrible things.. and look at what’s happening! If there’s anything that should be done, Manson shouldn’t be allowed to be conversing with impressionable young women, [let alone young women named “Star”] and the fact that he’s now [legally] marrying one is fucking horrifying..

So how do you feel about Charles Manson getting married? Was it inevitable or are you as concerned as I am? This is bound to be televised quite largely and I’m totally expecting this to be all over the Internet. oh well, I guess time will tell..
