A birthday card, right? We're all familiar with the concept of the birthday card. Hell, some people probably get more than one per birthday. A nice thing to receive, shows that someone is thinking of you, and it will adorn the bookcase/top of the telly until you've had enough of it and take it down. Fine.
HOWEVER - I received one not so long back that you would probably file under 'Comedy birthday card'. It had some brightly coloured lettering on the front, leading to a punchline of sorts at my expense on the inside. Fine. However, just in case receiving a birthday card was a new phenomenon to me, it had a sticker on the front which read "LOOK INSIDE!"
LOOK INSIDE! COMEDY EYES WITHIN THE 'OO'!
Fuck me, there's an inside to a birthday card? No wonder I've been so confused! "WHO HAS BOUGHT ME THIS CARD?!?", I have been known to holler in dispair. All the time not realising that I could find out by simply looking inside the card. When I get a card given to me which has clearly been folded in twain I tend to think to myself that anything anyone would want me to know will be immediately visible, and having read whatever is on the front I cast it aside. "Thanks for the card mate, however it posed a question on the front for which there doesn't appear to be an answer. Any idea... on the inside, you say? Shit the bed, there it is! Thanks mate, I had no idea."
Look inside. I ask you.
