It seems that if you want to send a truly funny greeting card these days, you need to write it yourself. Or you can let Someecards.com do the sarcastic posturing.
Someecards has inappropriate greetings for every occasion, but the workplace-focused cards are easily the best. The simple, sarcastic copy is complemented by minimalist , plucky illustrations. What about a card depicting some 1800s traders on a canoe in the wilderness claiming, âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â‰ˆÃ¬They canâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢t lay us off if they canâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢t find us.âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Ã¹ Or another card with a curmudgeon tossing back an overflowing pint stating, âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â‰ˆÃ¬IâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢m burned out from putting in 38-hour work weeks.âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Ã¹ Good, good stuff.
Ad Age named someecards the second best way to waste time on the Web. TheyâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢ve also been written up by The New York Times, US Weekly and Gawker. And someecards fires out more than 500,000 greetings a month to inboxes around the world.
As you can see, theyâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢re just a smidgeon hipper than Hallmark. But then again, so is Rachel Ray. And heck, if you donâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â€šÃ‘Â¢t find any greetings you like, you can even create your own blue greeting and have fellow cynics vote on them.
Here is mine: âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨â‰ˆÃ¬I started my own business just so I could can myself.âˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Ã¹
