Where Does He Get Such Wonderful Birthday Cards

TMZ has the scoop on what has to be the single most poorly conceived (but also LOLiest) birthday card ever:

…the Hallmark Joker b-day card — which plays a voice recording of the phrase “let’s put a smile on that face” when opened … and watch the smile on their face disappear. Lest we mention the bad taste for Heath Ledger’s family….

Yes, let us put a smile on that face. By cutting it open with a knife! “Oh, Billy just loved his birthday party. We had a clown come over and give him an impossible moral choice. It was so funny to watch his face light up as he debated which of his friends to detonate by midnight.”

The only funnier card than this is that classic Shining-themed card featuring Jack Nicholson on the front, mouth open in a rictus of madness, and he is saying “I don’t want to hurt you. You didn’t let me finish my sentence, I don’t want to hurt you, I just want to bash your fucking head in. Birthday Bash!” That card was so great. You could only get it in Canada, though. Look it up!
