Note to Hallmark

I had to swing by the drugstore today and get some sympathy cards for friends who lost their stepdad this weekend. Choosing one that doesn't make me (and possibly them) gag was made a little easier when I picked up one and read it only to find that it rhymed.

Is it just me? Or is this totally not the time for rhyme-y cards?

"Sorry to hear the sad, sad news
Now you must have the blues.
Well, chin up, life goes on
Even though your loved one is gone."

That's not what it said by the way. But maybe I have a bright future in the offensive card-writing business?
