Hallmark Now Making Layoff Condolence Cards

Hallmark is now making condolence cards especially for people who’ve lost their jobs, Fox News and NPR report.

Customers “sent us letters. They phoned it in,” Hallmark creative director Derek McCracken told NPR. “They asked their retailers, you know, in their neighborhood, where do I find a card that says this?”

“This” turns out to be a wide variety of sentiments. According to blog The Biz of Life, one card reads, “Losing a job is just plain painful. So I want you to remember I’m in your cheering section …”

Another, Fox says, reads “Don’t think of it as losing your job, think of it as time between stupid bosses.”

Another features a cat saying “Is there anywhere I could hack up a hairball, like say, on a former employer’s head?” Oh ho ho, you silly cats.

Well, at least a few people at Hallmark probably get to keep their jobs thanks to these.
