What once was flowers and puppy dogs

18th December 2003, early evening | Comments (11)

Funny how greetings cards have altered since I was a kid. It used to be that any card you bought had to have a strong flower or motor car or loveable-puppy motif; but now I can go to Woolworths and buy my Grandma a birthday card with some bloke’s hairy arse on it (and she’ll like it).

How times change.

Anyway, here are three I bought today:

    Hey Dan - cards like that are sold everywhere here in the UK, but I notice that those three are imported from a US company:

    LOL That's neat! They sure used to be a lot different a few years back, didn't they?...

    I remember I saw a card somewhere titled "Happy Everything! - Now leave me alone until next year!" featuring a Thanksgiving turkey with a Halloween pumpkin for a head and various other holiday symbols, like bunny ears, Santa hat, Valentine's chocolates, etc. I'll see if I can find it again and maybe I'll post a link here. I made a habit of sending it to people whose birthdays I forget or late after some important holiday (this reminds me, Christmas is coming, better print the next batch ;) )

    Maybe if I wanted to be rid of my Grandma, I'd send her a card like that. Hmmmmm.......inheritance?

    I would love to receive one of those cards for Christmas. They're freakin' hilarious.

    I can empathize with Noelino for sure!
