The bawdy phrase “You’re perverted, twisted and sick, I like that in a person” has been transferred onto memorabilia items like buttons, hats, and mugs, but it originated from cartoonist and card-maker Barbara Dale. Dale opened her business Dale Cards in 1979 and became known for her greeting cards and illustrations featuring edgy humor. Dale published multiple books, and her comic, The Stanley Family, went into syndication; she also received the Jack Davis Award for Lifetime Achievement in Cartooning from the National Cartoonists Society.  The Peale Museum in Baltimore has an exhibit featuring Dale’s work that went up in 2023.
