“You can pretend to be serious; you can't pretend to be witty.”
– Sacha Guitry (1885-1957)
There is no better demonstration of Mr. Guitry’s belief than the crew over at Someecards.
I have long been a fan of the sarcastic e-postcard one-liners. They are that irreverent friend who says what you wish you could say…the Cosmo Kramer of the e-greeting card world. Back when I had a real job in the real world, a co-worker and I would occasionally communicate solely via Someecards. One of our favorite go-to’s:
Never have I found myself at a time when my personal irreverence has been less appreciated, admonished even. For I am planning my wedding and a bride has no place for sarcasm, indifference, or mockery! (Except with my hubby to be – which is why he’s the one for me.)
So, I turn to my someecards friends to issue a few snide chuckles on my behalf.
And of course, because it's true...
