The angina postcard is brilliant but was 'boobs' in common use at the time the card was first published? Or is the card a reproduction with the original word changed? Google tells me 'boobs' has been around since 1930 but I thought it didn't become popular until well after that card first appeared.

I don't know the date of these cards, but I would say that one is more 60s/70s than the boom time for them post war up to the 1950s.
Still funny, whatever the year for me. :D

I remember a similar one where the Nurse was told "No - I said prick his boil."

If they still made them, I'd like to see this one.

That so reminds me of one we used to tell and have a naughty school-boy giggle over when I was a sprog....................

The world leaders had a knob contest where they had to lay their pricks on a table to see who had the longest.

The US president came in, laid his knob across the table and as it was measured, they played the American anthem.
French president - knob on table, measured as French national anthem played.
Duke of Edinburgh came in, knob on table and it flopped out right across the table and off the other side, so they played "God Save the Queen"
