Hale's Greeting Card Venture

I recently started up a greeting card business. It was going pretty good for a while. I even had some orders from a few celebrities.

Matt Lauer of the Today Show was the first to place an order. He wanted to wish a former co-worker good luck on a new endeavor.


Good Luck
On Your New


The next order came in from Valerie Bertinelli. She wanted to express encouragement to a friend who was battling a weight problem:

I'm happy to see you are having success with your diet. Enclosed is a $50 gift certificate for Dairy Queen.

Confectionately yours,

Then Miss Richie said she wanted help cheer up an incarcerated friend:


I am sending you these two bananas.

Be careful, you can eat one, but the other is for fun.

I miss you.

See ya soon.


Yes, business was good. I was going to corner the market on celebrity clients.

I didn't see it coming when I received the next order:

Hale McKay,
I'm sending you a sample of the toilet paper I endorsed. As you will see, only one square at time can be removed.
This is payback for the piece you posted making fun of my idea for every one to use only one square during each toilet visit.
Cheryl Crow

In a field where one is counting on word-of-mouth business, all it takes to "wipe" you out is one dissatisfied client!

Anybody want to buy 100,000 blank anniversary cards?

The young woman has it right. Anybody with lots of diamonds can pay for anything she wants.
