Funky Fridge Magnets
Funky Fridge Magnets
Yep - they are cool. They jazz up your boring old refrigerator, not to mention your dishwasher and anyplace else that will take one. They also say a lot about the kind of person you are. Kids love 'em, but adults own some pretty cool ones too. Retro fridge magnets are particularly popular, with Anne Taintor being a real market leader in this field. Check out some of her best 1950s humor retro magnets below.

Some classic style quotable quotes to stick on your fridge, courtesy of Anne Taintor - the woman who has made funny retro fridge magnets a much sought after item.
"High maintenance doesn't begin to cover it..."
My thoughts exactly.
"It would have to look like an accident..."

Do you agree? This lady certainly doesn't look like she'd feel at home in a tent, no matter how comfy the sleeping bag was.

Quite. Mine too.
