Greeting Card Campaign: 8-16 International Tell-A-Joke Day

Download the card here.
It is ironic that International Tell-a-Joke Day falls on the day a famous comedian died.  And no, he didn't die in the Catskills or at a comedy club in Hoboken and no one was throwing tomatoes.

Josias (Joe) Miller was a 17th century British comedian, author and actor who died on August 16, 1738. He wrote the classic humor volume (Joe Miller's Jests) which was a standard humorist's tool for many years. Later, his book was renamed Joe Miller's Jokes after the English language watered down the term jest to mean hoity-toity style humor as in "Surely, you jest." which is followed immediately by, "I do and don't call me Shirley."

Tell your beloved that your love for her is no joke with this clever (if I do say so myself) International Joke Day greeting card. Just click on the caption below the dying comedian and it will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs. Remember, instead of printing from Google Docs, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Download" and copy the file to your own computer.  Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you use and print the card from there. For some reason Google Docs doesn't handle fonts well, even though they are supposed to be embedded in the PDF document itself.

This is a side fold card, so when it prints, be sure to tell your printer it's in "landscape" format so you get the whole file. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This will save you a lot of time.

Tell her a funny thing happened on the way to your life.........with this International Tell a Joke Day card.
