Cards For Every Occasion!

It's Friday, time for a humor break!!!

We have had some great discussions here this week on a range of topics from relationships to racism, to classism and sexism. I was thinking about how our society has changed lately, and how it hasn't changed.

I was thinking that I should hawk a line of "NonHallmark" cards to celebrate the new types of special dates in our society, so I put together this line of new event cards.

Here's a selection:

Hell's Angel Induction!

To My Senator on the Occasion of His Latest Junket
Please Pay Your Child Support!

Home School Graduation Cards!

Condolences on Being Called Before the Grand Jury for the 5th Time

Congratulations to My New Girlfriend, From a Stalker

On Your New Covenant Marriage!

CONDOLENCES FOR HAVING YOUR PHONE TAPPED

KUDOS On Quitting AA!

Mixed Feelings About Your New Job?
On Embracing Intelligent Design!

On Your New Undergarment Design Company!
Looking Forward To Your Coming Rapture!
On Graduating From BDSM Training!

Kudos on Your New Botox Injection

On You Marriage to Your Cat!
For the President's Birthday, with no sympathy!

Upon the Occasion of Your Congressman NOT Getting Indicted

IDEAS SUGGESTED BY OR INSPIRED BY READERS:

Sympathy Card for Ex-True Believers of Bush, VIA peacechick mary.

CONGRATULATIONS ON HAVING A SUCCESSFUL BOOK BURNING EVENT! via Callooh.

CONDOLENCES ON BEING UNDEREMPLOYED: Via Weezielou!

Condolences to Mother Earth, via M.D.

Cards are also planned for "On Your Secondary Virginity" the "Fatherland Day," "Invitation to A Lethal Injection," and "Congratulations To Cheney, Bush is Now Emperor."

Those are great! Thanks. How about one for being part of the teeny weeny minority trusting Bush?

 
At 9:51 AM, Blogger glenda said...

Right on it, peacechick mary!

 
At 10:56 AM, Blogger Static Brain said...

That was great. I loved the Swan song and the Burning Bush. LOL. :-)

 
At 10:58 AM, Blogger Callooh said...

brillant.

can't wait for the book burning one -

ohh what shall we burn first? my Harry Potter set, my Catcher in the Rye? Tom Sawyer? To Kill a Mockingbird? oh what to choose.... what to choose ...

so many books, so few matches.

 
At 11:13 AM, Blogger glenda said...

They try to burn my Harry Potter and my Russian-made Kalashnikov comes outta the closet.
Callooh, you just gave me an idea for he bok burning card! Come back in a few.

these are truly a riot, although i don't think you showed true understanding re: marriage to a cat. and if was REALLY going to be representative, it should be a lesbian and a cat. now we need a card congratulating someone on being underemployed. i'll be using the 99.9% of my brain that's free while working to challenge myself with this task.

 
At 2:06 PM, Blogger betmo said...

excellent! so many occasions- so little time. when you care enough to even send a card.

 
At 2:23 PM, Blogger thepoetryman said...

Funny stuff! Good post, my friend!

 
At 2:24 PM, Blogger thepoetryman said...

Loved the "painting job" pic and sentiment! :>)

 
At 2:57 PM, Blogger thepoetryman said...

Just swinging back `round for a second go on the artwork! How's my favorite witch today? :>)

 
At 3:04 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Hey, WEEZIELOU, will put one together just for you!!

poetryman, I am happily making more as we speak. How's my favorite poet?

 
At 3:05 PM, Blogger pinkfem said...

Besides, weezie, the look on that cat's face ain't persactly flattering to the "arrangement."

 
At 6:32 PM, Blogger WeezieLou said...

here's another potential one: in this litigious society "to commemorate your first lawsuit...". can be used both for the litigator AND the litigatee.

 
At 7:30 PM, Blogger glenda said...

I'll have to find the really right picture for that one....will look around.

 
At 8:11 AM, Blogger Mary said...

A definite humor break for sure. I can't say which I love best although I sure wish I had the child support card many years ago.

 
At 8:39 AM, Blogger pinkfem said...

Ah, yes, child support. Is the state any more diligent in upholding the child support laws now? Some say yes, what about your state?

 
At 9:19 AM, Blogger PTCruiser said...

Loved the phone tap condolence card. Thanks for the chuckle, Glenda.

 
At 9:28 AM, Blogger glenda said...

Hi, PT, you do the great grunt with highwayblogger and the PT Kruizers Kommando work and I'll just keep mouthing off as much as I can. :)

 
At 3:08 PM, Blogger Lily said...

You are a natural, Glenda!!!


And you even mentioned my growing Flanties Inc. empire! I'm touched, friend.

 
At 3:34 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Well, that's what you're paying me for as your marketing director. :)

 
At 5:30 PM, Blogger JBlue said...

Funny stuff!

 
At 5:36 PM, Blogger JBlue said...

Hey, I'm stuck here, reading away. Great blog. I'll be back (which I don't mean to sound like a threat or anything...).

 
At 6:53 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Come on back anytime, jublu.

 
At 7:26 PM, Blogger Rory Shock said...

great post ... great cards ... highly entertainin'

At 7:37 PM, Blogger JM said...

These are far superior to the crap that Hallmark churns out; kudos! As always great work.

 
At 9:35 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Thanks, rory and jm. Now you got me trying to remember the last time I saw a really great card in the store. Hmmmm.........

 
At 4:50 AM, Blogger No said...

I love the cards..Do you design them yourself?

 
At 5:34 AM, Blogger glenda said...

Beth, Yep, I did them all.

 
At 11:48 AM, Blogger summersun70 said...

These are great!
Very clever and very well done.
Loved them!

 
At 1:36 PM, Blogger Callooh said...

these keep getting better - Glenda, I am in awe and want to know when we will be able to order....

 
At 2:13 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Well, thanks, what do you need, Callooh?
By the way, I saw a way cool Klimt show of his original pieces in Vienna a few years ago. I love his work!!!

 
At 4:18 PM, Anonymous Patricia said...

Gawd but you are creative! And it doesn't hurt that you echo my politics too! Keep up the great work...

 
At 6:51 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Thanks, as we said before, sisters under the skin! I love your photos too!!

 
At 8:03 PM, Blogger Renegade Eye said...

You outdid yourself. It was so funny, it was overwhelming.

 
At 8:07 PM, Blogger Crazy Me said...

Where do you come up with this stuff?! Fabulous!!

 
At 10:34 PM, Blogger M.D. said...

A shy, angry climate change scientist whispered in my ear that Glenda should apply her amazing talents to the "special occasion" known as global warming. Mother earth needs a "get well" card. Or should that be a Good luck/Goodbye card?

 
At 12:49 AM, Blogger sumo said...

Very clever and entertaining. I look forward to your various thoughts...

 
At 5:44 AM, Blogger glenda said...

Great idea, M.D.
Will work on that one too.

Thanks my dancer friend, renegade eye, crazyme (who also likes John Corbett) and, of course, Sumo, who is creative with the graphics and humor, too.

 
At 10:39 AM, Blogger celticfire said...

I'm still laughing!

 
At 12:46 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Like your new look, Celticfire.

 
At 5:39 AM, Blogger Candace said...

Once again, you've knocked the socks off everyone with your wit and talent, Glenda!!! Way to go.

 
At 4:32 PM, Blogger glenda said...

Thanks, Candace, and you are one hell of a good writer.

 
At 3:03 PM, Blogger Citisucks said...

How about happy Corporate Terrorist Day!

It can be used for any over-commercialized holiday making it a conveintant and useful one holiday fits all card.
