From Wikipedia: Someecards.com is a free online Ecards service created by Brook Lundy and Duncan Mitchell, and designed by Jerry Tamburro. The content of Someecards is comprised exclusively of parodies of the sentiments found in the traditional Hallmark greeting card, and often features content that could be considered cruel or offensive if taken seriously. Someecard’s deadpan humor has drawn approval from those for whom traditional greeting and Ecards do not appeal, especially younger urban audiences.
I’m not younger (unless you’re comparing me with my husband, or my brother, or most of my girlfriends, or Dennis my blogger friend in Texas) and I’m not urban either (more like suburban-ex-urbanite who wouldn’t mind a few acres in the country to build my “green” house on someday) but I still get a kick out of the Ecards on that website. Just make sure you only send them to people who can appreciate a very dry, very snarky sense of humor!

These are hilarious! Thanks for turning me on to them.
it s so true–
sometimes i can’t even get on my own blog; and i have one on blogger and one on blog… so I know its not me or my cable, its Blog usually. Blog.com is notorious… do you think they will read this and care?
you have some fascinating links.
Peace, health, etc.
What happened to mansuetude? I might even be tempted to think you helped found someecards.com. Talk about heartless. You have proven just how cruel the truth can be. My grandson was sitting in my lap the other day and saw an age spot on my face and said, “Pappy you have paint on your face.” Once it starts showing, people take every opportunity to let you know about it. 🙂
I love these cards, and yes, you have to be careful not only who you send them to, but the timing. I got in a bit of trouble from one of my sisters with one of these. long story!
More proof of our similarities… 🙂
Oh Dennis, you know I wouldn’t tease you if I didn’t consider you my friend (and you can have those paint spots lasered off at the dermatologist’s…don’t ask me how I know!)
Just spent some meaningful time with my dermatologist last week. The ecards are great. My kind of humor. I just love feigning insult for dramatic effect.
For the more “traditional” ecards, http://www.jacquielawson.com and http://www.ojolie.com are good places to go.
entertaining post. love your blog. 🙂
I just blogged about ecards as well. I love them. I sent one to a co worker who didn’t see the joke. It was awkward, but then I realized he is a humourless Cro-magnon man.
