Shoebox has a blog!

Hallmark doesn't really need the promotion, but you-all might like some humor. Last week I (finally?) discovered http://www.shoeboxblog.com/ , the blog for "A Tiny Little Division of Hallmark" that in a lot of ways pioneered the witty, funny greeting card. After all these years, they still do subtle humor better on average than other greeting card companies. My favorite part of their blog is the feature Funny, but No where they list some of the greeting card ideas that somehow are not chosen for publication on an actual card. Just one example:
Your birthday always
brings a smile to my face.

Kind of like when I was a kid,
and said the word “kumquat”
for the first time.
There's also a news round-up, quote of the day, and various little images and comic strips and Flash thingies. It's a nice little cheering-up place, especially if you've been reading too much about oil spills and invasive fish species lately.

I wonder if it's in Funny But No now, but in six months it'll be on a card in the store. I'm sure they've had cards like that, and I'd buy one too.

I would TOTALLY buy more cards if they had some of that copy.

Plants can feel pain, but you
never hear them whining about it.

Just another way my mother is not like a plant.

LMAO!
