Hey, Sorry About that STD…

I tend to think eCards are just about the least personal way to say anything except “I was too cheap to buy you a real card.”

It’s bad enough to send one for someone’s birthday, but now you can send them to people you may have infected with a sexually transmitted disease.

As a former sex educator, I totally appreciate the thought here, but c’mon…

    You would think that it would be a conversation that you’d want to have face to face … but on the other hand, it would be difficult to tell someone that you infected them with something … especially if it’s one of the STD’s you can’t get rid of. It’s kind of a coward’s way out, I suppose.

    I was just thinking…is it better to send an ecard telling someone you gave them herpes or a text message?

    I would send that to a ex just to piss em off and make them go to the doctor and get embarrased!

  4. Bronty Says:

    I agree with Andy. What I mean is, I wouldn’t do that, but I do see the practical joke aspect to it.

    Better than not telling them at all.

    ….i’m now curious if hallmark have something like it. 😛

    “Roses are red,
    Lillies are white.
    So sorry if you’re itchy,
    After fucking the other night.”

    Looks like jon there is trying a little viral action of his own. Actually he’s trying to use Cross Site Scripting Attack (XSS) to get the username/password from the cookie stored on your computer by using a password cracker and treating himself and his buddies to some free site access.

    In junior high school my sister and her friends used to order free tampon, maxipad, condom samples and send them to their enemies to embarrass them (whether this worked I have no clue), pretty harmless who couldn’t use more personal products in their life? I would hope that no one would apply the same principle to these cards, but the way some people are, you know its going to happen. Maybe it is a good idea, I don’t know much about public health.

    I realize people at times enter into shallow relationships, one night stands, etc. But I would loose all respect for anyone who used this means of communication. But then again we live in a shallow world nowdays. It would not be my idea of a funny practical joke either, but thats just me.

    This reminds me of my favorite eCard site that is full of hilarious cards I’m highly unlikely to ever send to anyone: someecards.com – I particularly enjoy how specific their apology section is. Gems like “Sorry I used to fuck your girlfriend” and “Sorry I came on your 400-thread-count luxury sateen sheets” and “Sorry I gave you or you gave me genital warts” – I think they have a card for just about any unpleasant situation.
