Weirdest thing my Kid Ever Said

As TV legend Art Linkletter famously remarked, “Kids say the darndest things.” It was true during Linkletter’s popular television show, and it’s true today. Teachers, parents, aunts, uncles, coaches and others have been baffled and bemused by some of the craziest things kids say. We asked popular greeting e-card company Doozy Cards for some of the weirdest things kids say, and they delivered.

When you’re in the greeting card business, you’re also in the funny quote business. We’ve seen our share of crazy at Doozy Cards, but it’s always great to receive new quips. Children are the most dependable source of amusing, outrageous and enlightening content. When it comes to laugh-out-loud humor, seasoned comics have nothing on an honest child or toddler.

We questioned the general public for some of the weirdest kid quotes, and the response was tremendous. While all the entries were cackle-worthy, the following really caught our attention.

Your Childhood Dream Toy VS Your Dream Toy Today

Over the decades kids have loved playing with toy cars of all types. From wooden ones to matchbox cars to fancy remote controlled ones: you’d race them around, make engine and tire noises, and build awesome obstacle courses. Now that you’re grown up, the cars of your dreams are a bit bigger, a lot faster, and you don’t have to make any sound effects for them. How about a sweet new Porsche, a Lamborghini or a Tesla for your driveway? Continue reading

How is there a National Holiday for Everything?

How is there a National Holiday for Everything?

How is there a National Holiday for Everything?

We absolutely adore holidays at Doozy Cards–celebrating, days off school and work, great food–but these days it seems like there’s a holiday everywhere you turn! We’re not talking about just your classic ones like 4th of July or St. Patrick’s Day. We’ve noticed more holidays for seemingly everyday things like National Pizza Day (Feb. 9th), National Chip and Dip Day (Mar. 23rd), and even National Gummi Worm Day (Jul. 15th)! There are even tons of non-food holidays like National Friendship Day (Aug. 2nd) and National Dance Like a Chicken Day (May 14th)!

Don’t get us wrong; we love eating pizza and dancing like a chicken, but where did all of these holidays come from and who decides when and what we celebrate? Is there some magical Wizard of Oz-type person that decides? If so, he or she must really love food and hugs! And let’s say you wanted to start your own special holiday, how would you do that? Well, it turns out there are a few different answers regarding where we get all of these holidays: Continue reading
