Comment: Valentine's Day Cards: Imagine the Possibilities! (Score 5, Funny) 71

by linuxmeepster (#27072423) Attached to: Company Makes Paper Out Of Wombat Poo

I'm going to make a fortune selling Valentine's Day cards made out of wombat poo paper. Imagine sending this beautiful poem:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
This card is made
Out of wombat poo

Instant success! Especially if you hand it to her and say, "this card reminded me of you".

I'll be sleeping on the couch tonight...
