    I read your current mood as “bank” and I think that would have been totally appropriate.

    I can’t find the 9/11 ones.

    I like to use 9/11 as an occasion to exercise oft-ignored/threatened rights, namely private bathroom analingus while high on paint thinner, the receiver reading the manga version of Mein Kampf.

    AAAAAGH.

    *thinks about top shelf brain bleach, restrains self*

    On the other hand, I could get a bunch of these and start sending them to people for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and so on.

    They’re not as bad as I imagined — no skyscrapers, no “Happy 9-11!” — kind of generic pro-military cards. There’s still a couple more years for them to get worse.

    (The “Tanks!” card sure is something.)

    thanks

    I so had to RT that on facebook so that others will know where to do their, whatEver… on this most holliest of HolyDays….

    Did I miss the one celebrating how Dubya shot down the IranqIstanian Flying Saucer?

    I remember you calling it.

    I am conflicted because I kind of want to buy one for the WTF of it, but I don’t want to give them any money.

    Let me get this right if i am standing in a building and an airplane runs into it that makes me a Patriot right. Seems like the concept could be expanded to include being in a burning building or just being in a building when you die. And of course the next obvious thing would just dieing.

    The Onion News NetworkSpecial Report: Americans observing 9/11 by trying not to masturbate.

    Please note:

    1. Distinguishing Bush-era government behaviour from the antics claimed by The Onion was impossible.
  10. This is actually somewhat less offensive than the actual behaviour of Hallmark.

    This was the first year I forgot about the significance of the day. Something online reminded me at noon. I am sorry it happened but I am even sorrier that it was used as an excuse for an illegal war that continues to do nothing but strengthen the sources of the the attacks that day. As such commemorating is fucking preliminary. We should all make moveon.org our status messages in Facebook.

    Having said that I do feel for the people who lost family members that day. I just would like for ALL SENSELESS KILLING DRIVEN BY FUNDAMENTALISTS TO STOP.

    You might say I’m crazy. But I’m not the only one.

    I’m surprised there aren’t any 9/11 cards that play music when you open them.
