You have seen our salacious emails, our pun-ny, bawdy Ts and perhaps you have noticed how we try to slip a double entendre into everything we write but you ain’t seen nothing yet. Check out these vintage Valentine’s Day Cards (the link was sent to us by our friend Paul Lukas who ALWAYS knows what we like, thank you Paul!), we thought we held the title on pairing meat and love/sex until we got a glimpse of these.

Our favorite is the little butcher boy with a grinder (admit it, grinders are just good fodder for a naughty joke) because it also brings to mind one of our favorite rude blues songs by Lil Johson recorded in 1937.

You’ll understand why this is one of the great butcher songs when you read the lyrics or listen.

Got out late last night, in the rain and sleet
Tryin’ to find a butcher that grind my meat
Yes I’m lookin’ for a butcher
He must be long and tall
If he want to grind my meat
Cause I’m wild about my meat balls

A no good man but he’s so doggone stout
Before he starts to grindin’ he’s all worn out
Somebody send me a butcher
He must be long and tall
If he want to grind my meat
Cause I’m wild about my meat balls

He can clean my fish, even pick my crabs
But what I need is my meat ground bad
Yes I’m lookin’ for a butcher
He must be long and tall
If he want to grind my meat
Cause I’m wild about my meat balls

You can have your roast chicken and your good lamb stew
But for my choice them old meat balls will do
Somebody send me a butcher
He must be long and tall
If he want to grind my meat
Cause I’m wild about my meat balls

Now look here papa, don’t try to stall
If you can’t grind a long time, don’t grind at all
Yes I’m lookin’ for a butcher
He must be long and tall
If he want to grind my meat
Cause I’m wild about my meat balls
