Funny and Unusual Father's Day Cards and Ads

Father's Day will be here in just a few days, and so time to share some humor from my personal collection of holiday themed greeting cards and ads. Some of these items were just poorly designed, while others should have been run before an editor before release, and a few are just outright strange. But if not for these things, they would have failed to catch my eye! I share them with you for entertainment purposes only, and hope you can appreciate the humor I took away from them myself.

We will start with the newest additions to the greeting card archive and then move to the ads. Hope you enjoy them!





Greeting Cards



This first one falls under the Where's-The-Proof-Reader? category.


This one, too. But it is cute.


This card, from the 70's I think, shows us the lasting popularity of ducks. And misspellings.


I'm not sure if this next card was a misprint, or just aimed at the elementary school-age shopper.


Here's one perfect for dads fond of classic art.


This card gives a nice old-fashioned sentiment.


Here's a design perfect for dads that love wildlife.


Because grandfather's can appreciate wildlife, too.


And for the wife that loves the big, breathtaking outdoors...

Ads & Classifieds


A warm classified from a loving family here..


An ad that leaves you wondering what Dad actually does when he's out driving by himself.


Yes indeed, your dad can appreciate classy gifts just as well as any swashbuckling warrior traipsing across the cow pasture!


This discount sounds pretty darned generous! I am not even going to venture a guess on two for the price of one WHAT??


Hm. This menu might draw the dads in, but you couldn't pay me to order. Mississippi Mud? Gross.


And my personal favorite ad of the collection!

This sure had its moments Beth. There those which were funny, there ones which could not be understood and then others simply did not make any sense. I voted it up and shared it.

peachpurple, yes, I would hope that one is intended for the granddad that is either a pro shark hunter or just a shark lover, lol.

My dad was very proper. He was not a 'pull my finger' sort of guy, and would never have farted in our presence.

I really relate to the Eddie Fisher song. I really miss my dad, and all the more so because he died of Alzheimer's, and in his addled and mixed up mind, he thought I was his enemy. I couldn't go around him for almost a year because he would fly into a rage. It was one of the hardest things I ever had to endure, because I was his only son, and before his sickness, we did everything together.

His ashes are on a shelf just behind me, and I know I should scatter them up in the high mountains he loved, but I just can't bear to part with the only tangible thing I have left. Maybe someday.

Will, wow. I thought every dad did that, lol!

I am sorry to hear about your Dad. That had to be very rough since you were close. And I can understand you finding it hard to depart with the ashes. I imagine he knows and understands perfectly. Take care, my friend and thanks for sharing. Hugs!
