Great Job, Internet!: Cutthroat dad edits out portions of birthday card he doesn’t think applies
Birthday cards are bullshit. Pretty much all prepackaged sentiments are, which is why the best of us either write our own cards or buy those novelty ones with naked hunks and bad puns. Because, really, all we crave as humans is a little bit of honesty. Telling someone you hope their day is “blessed with sunshine and smiles” is about as empty as tweeting out “thoughts and prayers” after a national tragedy.
Luckily, there’s one cool dad out there doing the Lord’s work. Comedian Katherine Ryan recently shared a few examples of the cards her pops sends her on special occasions. They’re exactly the kind of drek you’ll find in Walgreen’s, but with a few notable edits.
Like he’s done every year, my dad has crossed out the passages that he doesn’t feel apply to me in my birthday card. pic.twitter.com …
