The first cut is the deepest.
I wish I could say that this thug crab gif is what's making us happy this week, but it's just a scratch on the surface. No, this week we're talking deep cuts. A deep cut is an artist's creation, most times little-known, that's admired by their truest fans. In music, a deep cut is a gem of a song, like a secret track, or a b-side, that's found later in an album. At Tay Ham, our rare gems take the form of cards. They might not be best sellers, and their subject matter might be a little off-the-wall, but their quirky nature has earned them a prized place in our greetings omnibus, and of course, deep down in our paper hearts.
Today we chose our favorites - let us know what you think!
I pick PRETTY PLEASE! It's sweet and simple, and I feel like you could customize the message to work lots of different ways! Pretty please come visit me! Pretty please love me forever! Pretty please stay wonderful!
I love the HOLY CRAP card because, first of all, poop is always funny. This card is good to send for any occasion that you're so excited for. I think it is one of the most clever drawings and it cracks me up every time.
I like FIND A PENNE. The original was made special for Ross' mom's birthday. She's 100% Italian and pasta is a staple in her life. I put a piece of uncooked penne in her envelope too. It dropped when she opened it and she had to pick it up. Birthday luck! Plus it's a funny pun.
To me, the best deep cut is I WILL ALWAYS BE THERE FOR YOU! Number one, the sentiment is one of the most supportive and nurturing in the whole collection. And number my favorite, the whole feeling is buttressed by a big ol grody cold sore! (It's funny because it's true!) Folks who give this greeting laugh hard and show love through sarcasm. More importantly, the folks that receive this card laugh harder, and usually at themselves. It's an important life skill.
