Possibly The Best Birthday Card Of All Time…

This is an actual phone conversion between myself and The Boyfriend, that took place last week when his sister was visiting for the weekend to celebrate her birthday…   

 Me: Have you got Rach a card and pressie for her Birthday yet?

 Boyfriend: No

 Me: You do know it’s her Birthday today and we’re seeing them tonight don’t you.

 Boyfriend: Yeah I know, but she’s already been round this morning so she knows I haven’t.

 Me: She’s been round? So… did you just tell her you’re a terrible brother and you forgot??

 Boyfriend: No! I gave her all those out of date tokens of ours for the pier… and I found one of my old birthday cards and just crossed the names out and changed them.

 Me: You gave her an old birthday card with the names changed? Wow, so you ARE a shit brother.

 Boyfriend: …I drew her a picture too. It took me ages.

 Me: Oh god, what did you draw.

 Boyfriend: I’m not telling you… I might have got carried away.

 Me: …tell me.

 Boyfriend: OK, but for the record she thought it was really funny.

 Me: Oh god…

 Boyfriend: *giggling* It was a vagina looking at itself in the mirror.

 He wasn’t lying either…

Disclaimer: I should probably point out that he’s not a cheap bastard, neither does he not give a fuck about his sister’s birthday.
He was waiting for his loan to come in.
(He told me to say that.)

Haha, this is brilliant. What the hell is that picture? It looks like a man trapped inside a nut.

I’ve now learnt not to buy men cards. My Dad actually told me not to buy him any birthday/Father’s Day/ Christmas cards and save all that money every year (possibly about £7) and buy him a bottle of wine. It’s a win-win situation because I don’t need to worry about forgetting and he always shares the wine with me!

Update – Just read that last line – A vagina look at itself in the mirror!? Hahaha, that is hilarious.

My brother and I do stuff like this all the time! We’ve given cards just like this. Growing up, instead of wrapping my gifts he would bundle them up in a pillow case or a blanket. In retaliation, I’ve stuck his presents in tampon boxes :)
