Ok, seriously. This artist hates frogs!

Before the year is out, I feel it’s important to once again touch on the subject of this card/ad artist who clearly has a problem with frogs. Did a frog kill his dad? Are they just swarming his house?

Horrible Vintage Christmas cards pt.6

Again with the frogs. What is it with this era and dead frogs at Christmas time? Or did this artist just really have it in for frogs?

Merry Christmas everyone!

Horrible Vintage Christmas cards pt. 1

While looking for ideas for this year’s family Christmas card, I got stuck in a hole of very disturbing vintage Christmas cards. Either people of that time were really messed up or had a totally hilarous sense of humor. You be the judge. I’ll kick off the weekend each Friday with one of these until Christmas, I think. Just for a nice dinner conversation starter.  Here’s the first:

Midsommar and EVIL Midsommar

This past weekend, we celebrated Midsommar here in Sweden. It’s a celebration of the longest day (though that’s actually yesterday, I believe), where Swedes dance around a Maypole like frogs…. this after eating pickled herring and drinking lots of schnapps.

So I filmed a little one-minute video of our Midsommar celebration last Friday, Swedes hopping around like frogs, etc.

But while I was filming it, I started to wonder what it would be like with different filters and sound effects.  I think you’ll like the result:

The cleanest chesnuts in town

With having little kids in Sweden, you wouldn’t believe the amount of chesnuts I end up washing in the laundry machine.

At least I’m not in Texas.  My cousin ends up washing frogs.
