PIC: Kilkenny man buys birthday card for one-year old girl, finds strange surprise inside

Can’t say we saw this one coming.

Last week, JOE reader Jimmy Phelan was heading to a birthday party being held for the daughter of a close friend of his.

Jimmy wanted to get her a nice card to mark the occasion and thought he couldn’t go wrong with a nice pink one he picked up in Waterford with a picture of a teddy bear and a lovely poem on the front.

So far, so good, until Jimmy, having bought the card, went to write on it just before he left for the party and found that what was on the inside didn’t quite match the front cover.

Still OK...

Now it takes a strange turn...

Luckily for Jimmy, he spotted it in time and saved himself the embarrassment (even though it wasn’t his fault) of explaining why the card he bought for his friend’s one-year old daughter was actually addressed to his wife.

That would have led to a few awkward conversations alright.

The greeting on the inside did include a picture of the same teddy bear from the front of the card so obviously there was some wires crossed in the quality control department.

Go home Hallmark, you’re drunk.
