341 I’m Your Huckleberry.


I feel like I’ve used that title before.  Still, I’m not worried enough to research it…

I’ve been getting fake Hallmark ecard messages on the comic mail server.  The logical part of my brain realizes that I shouldn’t be getting ecards from anyone, but the other part is really disappointed when I check them out and they aren’t real.  The thing is, now I understand how Hallmark stays in business.  That moment, before logic catches up, when I think “Somebody cares about me!” is the magic that keeps people buying greeting cards.  Of course I’d probably be just as happy with a post it note expressing some sentiment.  That way I wouldn’t feel bad about someone dropping three bucks on some colorful paper and a bad joke.  I’ll handle the bad jokes, Hallmark, thank you very much.
