Merry Fucking Christmas Cards
November 12, 2007 7:11 PM   Subscribe

Where can I buy legitimately funny, sarcastic and/or offensive Christmas Cards?

After seeing the greeting cards that The Onion are selling, I was wondering who else out there sells the best greeting cards in the same sarcastic/witty/snarky vein. I'm not looking for cute-funny, obviously-shocking-funny, or geek-funny. In other words, smart but unpretentious, sometimes twisted and sarcastic humor.

The style of card I'm looking for should appeal to someone who is a huge fan of things like The Onion, Chunklet Magazine, McSweeney's, etc.

America's Best Christian™, Betty Bowers, to the rescue.

If e-cards are an option, someecards.com is pay dirt.

Argh. I had the perfect ones to point out to you, but the store is temporarily closed. The best link is: http://www.rhymes-with-witch.com/store.shtml . And looking at the wayback engine, perhaps he's discontinued them. Sad.

I second O plus D. I've always been partial to this one.

rob511: Are those Cafepress cards any good, quality-wise? Those are some great ideas, but if the previous items I've bought from CafePress are any indication, I might as well steal those ideas and print up my own cards on high-quality stock!

Great link though. Thanks!

logic vs love: Urban Outfitters is on my eternal shitlist, because of how they exploit and rip off independent artists. Oh and not to mention the fact that the CEO donates 90% of his political contributions to some of the worst Republican scumbags on the planet (Rick Santorum having been a notable one)

Those other links, however, are awesome!

melorama: I have no idea about their quality, but immediately thought of Ms. Bowers when reading your question.

Just like Playboy, I read Betty for the jokes.

Look no further than Someecards for absolute snarkiness and nonsense!
