For some, funny trading cards feature bad hair and giant beards from the 1970s. For others, funny trading cards are those that are meant to be, like Garbage Pail Kids and Wacky Packages. For me, the cards that make me laugh hardest are the ones that are a bit naughty but don't set out to be.

Growing up, a part of my rebellion was listening to a rap group called 2 Live Crew. Their gimmick, at least in my 11-year-old mind, was that they swore a lot and sang about things my mom wouldn't approve of. Not only did they like choice four-letter words, but the lead singer was giving the finger on the cassette's cover. My friend bought the tape and hid it away in his room like it was a stack of dirty magazines. He knew that if his mom caught sight of it, that it'd be straight to the dump for this largely harmless form of pre-teen rebellion. And that's exactly what happened. Although I haven't come across any 2 Live Crew rookies in my day, here's a handful of funny trading cards your mom probably wishes she did throw out.

I would offer a warning that the cards and discussion below deal with things that some parents may want to shield their kids from. However, my guess is that if any kids are reading this, they're probably just going to dim down the screen a couple of notches so mom doesn't catch wind.

For that list click here.

My mother insists to this day that she didn't throw my cards away in the mid 60's. Now my father on the other hand. laugh.gif He would have thrown me out with them. tongue.gif
