Mothers' Day Greetings

I think I finally found my $1,000,000 idea - Mothers' Day Cards that don't suck.
I went to buy some yesterday and I had to go to 2 stores.  Not because I was loading up and bought out the selections.  But because the first store's selection was so abysmal that I would have rather given my mom a homemade piece of construction paper with stick figures and hearts drawn on it.
The second store was only fractionally better and I bought one there just because I didn't know where else to go.
I also bought my husband a card to send to his mom that made me LOL so hard in the greeting card aisles that I probably looked crazy.  I bought it half because it really was the best one I could find for a non-gay man with severe emotional issues.  And half because I knew he would be too lazy to buy another one and will end up sending it anyway.  It went something like this on the outside (I'm paraphrasing):
"I want to wish you a Happy Mothers' Day in my own manly way"
Sometimes I just can't resist the ridiculous.  I guess that makes me an evil genius.  Or just a bitch. 
The only really positive thing that came out of my card shopping yesterday was my observations of the other shoppers and their equally as disappointed reactions to the options.  I wish I could candidly record people's reactions to the singing cards, that they don't know are going to sing.
There is really nothing quite as entertaining at a pharmacy as watching people's horrified reactions when the cute little greeting card starts singing "It's Raining Men" upon opening and the rapid fire speed with which everyone immediately slams them back shut.
That was a good time.
As I was searching for an image for the card I actually bought Grant, I found this instead.  Now why can't they sell this at CVS?  This is good stuff.
