    OMG!! It's hilarious!

    WOW! If you've got a warped sense of humor you're going to love this little collection of postcards. Aside from rushing around to show my co-workers and friends and listening to them laugh out loud I have actually cut out postcards and sent them to my adult kids....I'm a little left of center anyways. I figure I'm entering the post office folks if nothing else!

    Grandma's Dead

    Probably NOT the best gift to give to a grandmother (as I did) but when she realized that represented only one page all was forgiven. I laughed so hard while flipping through it in the B&N store people were staring at me. Found it so humorous that I had to buy it. Fun book to give to someone who is looking to laugh.

    Hysterical!

    I use these for entering sweepstakes through the mail, and I can only imagine what the contest administrators think when they stop to read what the cute appearing postcard says. I get a huge kick out of these.

    Funny!

    It is what it is supposed to be...funny. Yes, it is politically incorrect, but the irony of the photos with the captions will make you giggle...and feel so wrong for doing so! Just plain fun.

    Funny - I know, not nice, but really, funny as hell!!

    If i have to explain this to you, then it's not for you . . .<BR/><BR/>Give bad news with postcards that have the cutest animals on them. Featured are "It's not me, it's you" with an adorable Dalmation puppy that could melt your heart . . . . if you weren't getting dumped by it.<BR/><BR/>Enjoy them. hey, even send a few of them out to your most humor-worthy friends. These cards have me laughing out loud.

    Breaking Bad News is Hilarious

    Great as a gift or something to put on the table to stir up conversation. I love the combination of the cute pictures with the "bad news"<BR/><BR/>You can't go wrong with this. I bought a whole bunch and gave them out at work and to friends - everyone loved it.

    Funny, weird, quirky

    Cute animals make just about everything better--even the delivering of extraordinarily bad news. The authors skewer the "cutesy animal motivational poster" demographic by combining stock photos of furry little critters with grimly depressing captions (such as "Recycling won't help" and "You are my least favorite child").<BR/><BR/>While the concept is funny, anyone can see that it's the sort of thing that could get old fairly fast. Luckily, you won't have to worry about that--each page of the book is designed to be torn out and mailed away, to share with your friend who also have odd senses of humor.
