Funny Thanksgiving Greeting Cards and Ads
Last year I posted a collection of humorous Thanksgiving greeting cards, and as the holiday is about to roll around again I wanted to share some more. This time I also have some unintentionally funny ads to go along with the cards. These items are shared for your entertainment only, and not intended to endorse or insult anyone or anything.
I will start with the greeting cards and then go on to the ads.
Memes and all things Cats are very popular these days, and this one is a very cute way to send out those warm holiday sentiments to family and friends.
This card is also suitable for sending sentiments to loved ones..when your blow horn is on the fritz.
I have a suspicion the intention of choosing this card is to send your loved one a needed hint about the true meaning of Thanksgiving. This, or the card designer is simply as oblivious as the dude on the card.
The message on this card may look like a simple printing error, but if I'm correct, this is a painting of one of the Mathers of Puritan times. These provincial leaders were famed for hunting down witches and other socially unwanteds in the colonies, and so this card and sentiment are ideal... if you happen to belong to the Westboro Baptist Church.
It is refreshing to know the dead still receive mail.
Another cute kitty card.
I suppose it serves the business interests of merchants to have every single word of English that appears on their product duplicated into Español, But if I may be so bold as to suggest to this card maker: HIRE A TRANSLATOR!
I suppose this one was designed for the really talkative friend or relative?
This card obviously serves no socially redeemable function whatsoever. But it does make me laugh!
Truth in advertising is a good thing, but I fear this much frankness could put the grocery store out of business.
This flyer seems to be saying that Thanksgiving dinner just isn't complete without a nice heaping helping of worms.
The ad probably boosted Monistat sales immensely!
My kids agree wholeheartedly with this one.
I can just imagine the delightful words Gordon Ramsay would have for this traditional menu...
Well, like the saying goes, there's always room for Jello..
Am I the only one that thinks merchants have turned Thanksgiving into nothing more than an excuse to profit off of every other holiday on the calendar?
I suspect it is grammar like this that puts some grocer's in the poor house.
Last year PETA got bombarded with complaints after releasing this dog-turkey ad aimed at children. But you just got to admire the clever newspaper editor that placed it right beside this headline. Oh, how I love irony!
