Hallmark unveils sympathy cards for the jobless

I guess it was inevitable, with unemployment over nine percent and more than 14 million Americans out of work, that someone would think of a way to cash in on the situation: Hallmark has just introduced a new line of sympathy cards for the unemployed. The Bard of Murdock speculates about what an unemployment card might say:

For an Independent

Front:

You walk the unemployment line
In suffering and pain

Inside:

You might have been much better served
By voting for McCain.

From an Accountant

Front:

I know you lost your job last week,
But that will not impress

Inside:

The folks who’ve come to visit from
The friendly IRS.

For a Democrat

Front:

You’ve lost your job and livelihood,
But here’s Obama’s pitch:

Inside:

Your mood will be much better when
We stick it to the rich.

For a Chief Executive

Front:

The sparkle and the shine are gone,
Along with hope and change

Inside:

The good news is the time you’ll have
To hit the driving range.
