I used to think these were kind of funny. Like 6 fucking months ago. They were witty at times (6 months ago), off-the-wall, come-at-you-from-nowhere at other times (6 months ago.) Some were a little bit offensive (6 months ago), some used just the right amount of swearing (6 months ago.) And I like the style of art the pictures use – solid color with old-timey looking vector art. But lately it seems that every single person on facebook, especially (quote on quote) humor groups have figured out that these are a (quote on quote) good solution when they run out of actual funny stuff. Which, it seems, they run out of actual funny stuff a lot. “Hrm, can’t scour google images or macro sites hard enough to find anything good, so I’ll just post another ecard so people still think I’m funny.” Look, it’s simple: if you’re going to make a humor group on facebook (or anywhere), make sure you have the following things accounted for:
1) You’re funny enough to make your own funny shit.
2) You’re good enough with the interwebz to know how to look for funny things, ie, things that are actually funny.
3) Make sure you add other people who are funny to pick up the slack, or all the slack if you’re not funny. But if you’re not funny, then you shouldn’t have made a “humor group”, now should you?
4) Delete your fucking ecard fap folder for fucks sake. Last thing people want is to be bombarded by another 10-20 ecard posts a day.
