I’ve been getting my ideas ready for the next Hallmark Card Competition that just opened up. This is the first idea that I came up with a few weeks ago. The theme is “A Girl’s Gotta Laugh” and I am supposed to come up with a card that will encourage women through laughter. So I thought of this old, wrinkly frog who had to come up with a creative way to make money. So she makes frog eye salad and sells it at a local bake sale. Of course, if a frog is selling frog eye salad, then she will be blind (because she used her own eyes in the salad).
I thought it was such a clever idea until I started to show it to a couple of people. Nobody really got the joke until I had to explain it to them. Then I got a lot of funny looks and remarks like, “That’s kind of gross.” or “That’s really morbid”.
I came up with some different ideas.
