Unhappy Valentine's Day!

While usually people give cards to express their love on Valentine's Day, there was a type of card designed to be given on Valentine's day to someone you wanted to insult.

These insulting cards were called "Vinegar valentines".

Vinegar valentines were popular between 1840 to 1940. They insulted everything including looks, intelligence and manners. These cards would sometimes cause arguments and fistfights.
