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.

Son: Why should I make my bed if I'm just going to sleep in it tonight? Mother: Why should I feed you if I know you're going to die someday anyways?

Unrelated - I want those telephones back everywhere, so that people will dial less and specially our lives will be relieved of stupid text messages.

Is it the man expressing this because he's the one cooking, or is it the woman... because the man is cooking?

What's not to love about taking all the things you can normally do with ease and making them unnecessarily hard?

It depends on how you define success. We also don't know what kind of childhood most people had. Sorry! Suddenly realised I was being way too serious for this comedic submission!

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)

Her husband surprised her by coming home for lunch. Her hair is styled and she has on full makeup. But she's still in her housecoat. Better check the closet...
