Hello potential customers! I am very excited about this brand new, ink-is-still-drying, mini Valentine set I recently designed! They’ve been in the works since last year, but…well…I got lazy and didn’t get them finished in time for last year’s Valentine’s Day and then I lost motivated, but the a few weeks ago, I revisited my Cult Leader folder in Bridge and powered through.
It took lots of coffee and research, because I REALLY wanted to have 16 different designs, instead of just 8×2. Needless to say, I have been having some pretty not-great dreams lately, especially Thursday night after I spent most of the day with Scientology/L. Ron Hubbard videos playing on the TV behind me while reading Aleister Crowley Wiki pages.
I know, you’re used to seeing serial killers in this shop, but there is a very fine line separating these deviant walks of life!
I included some televangelists here too. Sure, perhaps they weren’t actively plotting mass murders, but they were still knee deep in scandals and scams!
These are designed just like my other Valentine sets – mini cards just like the kinds the kids pass out in school, except are they even allowed to do that anymore? Did some parent somewhere make a frantic phone call to the superintendent regarding the possibility of their precious Stacy Bitchtoast getting a papercut from handling big, bad, dangerous Valentines?
Sigh. School was so much better in the 80s.
Use these to recreate those special moments from back then, when kids didn’t have gluten allergies and it was OK to wear a mask in the Halloween parade. Except now you’re passing them out to your coworkers or whatever. Maybe you live in an apartment and feel like leaving anonymous love in some of your neighbors’ mail slots? Or maybe you just feel like passing them out on a street corner next to the weirdo Jehovah’s Witness doling out doomsday pamphlets.
In this set, you can find fan favorites like:
- Charles Manson
- Jim Bakker
- Jim Jones
- David Koresh
- Jimmy Swaggart
- Tammy Faye Bakker (an icon, really)
- Marshall Applewhite
- L. Ron Hubbard
- David Miscavitch
- Aleister Crowley
- David Berg (founder of Children of God)
- Luc Jouret
- James Arthur Ray (self-help guru infamous for the sweat lodge deaths)
- Anne Hamilton-Byrne (leader of Australian cult The Family)
- Victor Houteff (Pre-Branch Davidian, Shepherd’s Rod, leader)
- Warren Jeffs (gross President of Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints)
Each one has the person’s name on the back in case your recipients are like, “….who the fuck…?” then they can follow Google down the Wiki Hole!
My 13-year-old son was like, “I hope no one ever searches our computer because the shit you google for your cards is just….wow.” But then he was looking at this set and said, “Wow, these are actually really good quality.” LIKE, HELLO, I KNOW. WHERE HAS HE BEEN ALL THESE YEARS?
So in case you needed any reassuring, please accept my son’s review. I mean, he looked away from his Nintendo Switch for a whole 5 minutes to flip through this set, and that really mean something these days.
I…can’t believe people believe in Scientology. And I’m a preeeeeetttttty gullible broad.
I might have actually peaked as a card designer / dad joke writer with that Koresh one.
I stared at David Berg’s face way too long when I was making the Flirty Fishy card and I think I have PTSD now.
Anyway, thanks for letting me share! (This one lifestyle blog I hate-read always says that and I’m like….but you didn’t ask.)
