Have you ever come across these pictures with retro ladies smiling combined with sarcastic tongue-in-cheek captions? If you have, and also found them funny, then this article is your cup of tea.

An artist called Anne Taintor is the originator of these snarky vintage illustrations that will surely make you laugh if you have a slightly wicked sense of humor. The illustrations often show “traditional” American women—coiffed, starched, and cheerful models from the 40s, 50s, and 60s—juxtaposed with cheeky captions suggesting their real inner thoughts.

So, scroll down and feed your sarcastic soul.

I’ve said it before, but I honestly don’t really understand being embarrassed of your parents. I’m not ashamed of my parents, I understand being embarrassed FOR them, but why be ashamed the people who care for you? Parents are badass. (Yes I’m boring, but whatever)
