    I agree.  I would not be offended if it was given to me by a good friend who has a very sarcastic sense of humor.  I could see how it could be offensive to other people, though.

    But so could those cards with the strippers inside them or profanity.  Everything could be offensive to someone these days.

    lmao, I wouldn’t be offended if I received this card. I have friends that would appreciate it.

    I can see why it would be offensive, but I have a very sarcastic sense of humor and wouldn’t be offended if I got this card.

    If some complete stranger or one of my co workers i don’t know very well gave it to me…hell yea i would be pissed.
    but if it was my BFF or someone  then yeatI would fid it funny. I would probably buy it my self for my Maid/Matron of Honor if/when she gets preg.

    My friends and I don’t talk to each other like that, so I’d be incredibly surprised (and probably a little hurt) to receive the card.

    In general, though, I think it’s okay. And the joke it funny. I just am not the type to receive it.

    Know your audience. Would I give this to my best friend? Yup. Would I give it to my daughter’s preschool teacher? That’s a no. I don’t really care if people are offended by it, everyone is going to find something offensive. My husband knows a guy who lost an arm and people call him “Stump”. It was a nickname that made the guy laugh in the hospital and it stuck. Some people would probably be horribly offended, others choose to laugh.

    Hahaha

    My last birthday card from my best friend was home-made and went something like this:

    Happy Birthday! (cover)

    …you dirty old skank! (inside)

     

    I laughed and its still on my fridge.

    If she got pregnant, I would totally get her this card.

    Thats just how our relationship is.  Getting this card for someone you don’t know very well would be pretty stupid.  But you cant ban everything just because it can be used stupidly.

    I personally would be offended to receive this card from anyone. My friends and I don’t talk to each other that way. But, I suppose if someone else thinks it’s funny, they should be allowed to buy it.

    I think that it *REALLY* depends on the situation, and the person getting you the card. 

    For example, if I had purchased such a card for my younger sister, who had 2 children before she was married, it would have probably offended someone… maybe not her, but someone. 

    But if I got pregnant, and my best friend/MOH who wants to get married and have babies RIGHTNOWSOBADLY got it for me, it would be hilarious. I know she would actually be excited about Darling Husband and I having a baby, but it would be a tongue-in-cheek joke. 

    I think the best way to give that card is from a close friend with a sense of humor, to a woman who is clearly NOT a whore.

    I actually picked it up the other day.  I thought it was hilarious, but not right for the friend I needed a card for.  For other friends, however, it would be perfect!

    You just have to know your audience with that card.  People can be offended by almost anything…. would I give this to a coworker I didn’t know that well… no.   I am however considering giving this to my Maid/Matron of Honor now that I know it exists.

    I remember another card I gave to a friend a few years ago that is along the same lines.  The front said “Here comes the bride, all dressed in white” and the inside said “White?  Whatever, slut.”  She thought it was very funny!  You just have to know your audience.

    I’d love it if I got a card like this from a really good friend.  I’d much rather sweet, congratulatory cards though from others.
