Our Bald Guy Greetings Pub Night Was A Blast!
Posted on April 04, 2012 by Curiosities Gift Shop
Thanks to everyone that came out & made our Bald Guy Greetings Pub Night at the Old South Village Pub so much fun! For those of you who aren't familiar with them, Bald Guy Greetings are a line of cards that we carry that make people laugh coffee out their noses (usually only when they're drinking coffee).
Our Bald Guy greeting card customers are such a great group that we had decided they needed to meet each other. So lots of folks came out and joined us for a night of drinks, fun and just a hint of sarcasm.
Ian from Bald Guy Greetings had said... “If you go to just one pub night on March 29th, I strongly recommend going to the Curiosities Pub Night at Old South Village Pub. But if you go to two pub nights on March 29th, I strongly recommend you seeking help for your pub night addiction. Who the hell goes to two pub nights on the same night? That's crazy.”
Well Ian, some people did go to more than one pub night on March 29th but we’re happy that they chose to make ours one of them. We’ll stage a pub night intervention for them later;)
For everyone that’s not familiar with the Bald Guy Greeting cards, take a look the next time you’re in the shop. If you have a sarcastic streak you’re sure to have a good laugh. And words of wisdom, don’t drink your coffee at the same time!
*UPDATE April 4th 2012
A huge thank you to everyone who participated in our “sarcastic-off” contest during Pub Night & to Ian of Bald Guy Greetings for judging the entries and deciding on our winners. Ian reworked their comments as they would appear on a Bald Guy Greeting Card. The two winners will receive a year’s worth of Bald Guy Greetings (in other words, a boxed set of 10 cards) & the honourable mentions, well they don’t actually get anything, but they do have bragging rights!
The Bald Guy himself says that the clear winner is Lincoln McCradle. Ian says Lincoln’s greeting card would look like this:
OUTSIDE: You are truly one of a kind.
INSIDE: Just like everyone else.
Winner number two is Paul Nicol with his Bald Guy greeting card reading:
OUTSIDE: How are you doing?
INSIDE: If you're really answering me right now, you must not understand what a rhetorical question is.
And for our honourable mentions.....
We all love this one from Teresa Tarasewicz who brings Canadian humour to the greeting card with:
OUTSIDE: Penny for your thoughts.
INSIDE: Starting as soon as they discontinue the penny.
And Eldrad (of no known first nor last name) has started a whole new greeting card occasion – cards you give to yourself – with this one:
OUTSIDE: You are sexy and you know it.
INSIDE: Even though no one else knows it.
Thanks again to everyone for a great night full of laughs & to Bald Guy Greetings for inspiring the whole thing!
