Save the Joke, Toss the Card


I am brutally, heartlessly, viciously working my way through a box of old greeting cards, letters, invitations, church directories, children’s artwork, and other such flotsam and jetsam of the past. Very little is making it through the narrow gate to the celestial “keep” folder while the rest is getting cast into the pit. Here’s a joke from one that will be going to its doom as soon as I copy it out for you:

[Outside of card] Illustration of a guy who could have been an extra in Monty Python the the Holy Grail holding up something slimy. “In the Middle Ages, doctors commonly used leeches to suck the blood out of their patients.”

[Inside of card] “Now they prefer to have a separate billing department.”
