Originally posted at The Word at My Fingertips. These are hilarious. I was thoroughly entertained by them, though it only took ten minutes to go through both. I was just laughing my way through and I now need to look for more postcard books. Each postcard brought something new to the theme and changes the way I look at it. They had cute little jokes on them, most of which I completely understood. Some went over my head. I'll have to ask people about those:) Definitely a fun read for anyone, though a more mature audience will benefit from the humor. Get these and enjoy them!
