We’re liars. Think about it: why do people buy these things? It’s not because they want to say how they feel, people buy cards because they can’t say how they feel or they’re afraid to. We provide the service that lets them off the hook. You know what? I say to hell with it. Lets level with America. Or at least let them speak for themselves, right? I mean, what does this say? “Congratulations on your new baby” how about “Congratulations on your new baby, guess that’s it for hanging out? Nice knowing ya”. How about this one with all the pretty hearts? I think I know where this one’s going, “Happy Valentine’s Day sweetheart, I love you” That’s sweet. Ain’t love grand? This is exactly what I’m talking about. What does that even mean; love? Do you know? If somebody gave me this card, I would eat it. It’s these cards, and the movies and the pop songs – they're to blame for all the lies and the heartache, everything. And we’re responsible; I’m responsible. I think we do a bad thing here. People should be able to say how they feel- how they really feel; not you know, some words that some strangers put in their mouths, like love, that don’t mean anything.
