Growing up doesn't mean growing older. It just means growing closer to our dreams and the stars.(Front of Card)

Wishing you a lifetime of grown-up dreams and young-at-heart joys!(Inside of Card)

Hmm, where have we seen something like this before? A sweet birthday card for someone who could use a reminder that aspects of the grown-up world are not, in fact, terrible.

Hope Every Minute of Your 6th Birthday...(Front of Card)

Is Totally Sizzling with Fun!(Inside)

(Back of Card)

A birthday card for that special six-year-old who wasn’t even alive back when there were only 150 Pokémon.

Happy New Year’s Eve! If you are in the market for an easy resolution, I propose this: Whenever I see a silly, honest, ridiculous, or ungiftable card, I will scan it and send it to ridiculousgreetingcards@gmail.com. Submitters will receive personal advice on who might benefit from such a card, and it may even appear on the site!

What’s a Birthday Card without Money Inside? December 23, 2009

What's a Birthday Card without Money Inside?(Front of Card)

This One(Inside)

I remember when one of my friends discovered that her family had agreed that all nieces and nephews would stop getting presents after their 18th birthdays. This card seems to be made for sweet 19 for that spoiled niece you never really liked.

Otherwise, you could slip those concert tickets into this card, and have a fun night out with your friend with a good sense of humor. Create family drama, or spark a fun night out: this card gives you the choice!

Sick of getting that special cat lover in your life that generic fluffy kitten card? Give her one that will really stand out!

You had just been asking yourself, Self, what is the best way to gently poke fun at my aging friend who once majored in art history?

You’re not getting old… December 19, 2009

You're not getting old...(Front of Card)

...but if you're expecting a gift you are getting stupid(Inside)

Another friend, another trip to the dollar store to spend $.50 in order to remind them that there’s more to life than the capitalistic convention of birthday presents. But what is particularly clever about this card is its lion-maned protagonist. Through this protagonist, you may experience the pleasure of actually presenting your friend with a (drawn, green, oddly-shaped) present, and then snatching it away as soon as your friend opens the card! The inside text will then reminds him that he will never see what lies within that green, oddly-shaped box. Never.

How clever! you think. Perhaps this will get me yet another free birthday-money drink.

...but then I've always considered myself a bit of an outlaw(Inside)

Jokes between friends are never mean. Right? Otherwise, why would you bother having friends?

And anyway, you spent a whole $.50 on this card at the dollar store, so it’s not like you didn’t invest money in this friendship. You even remembered your friend’s (strange) obsession with cowboys, so it really couldn’t get more personal than this. Maybe he’ll even see that extra effort you put in and buy you a drink. After all, it’s his birthday; he’s probably got some extra cash burning a hole in his chaps.

Damn it!(Inside Text)

Another vintage card, appropriate for if you actually have been barking up the wrong tree, but aren’t ready to give up quite yet.
