Okay, so the stamp doesn't really read this ... but it should!
The stamp, by Close to My Heart, doesn't credit the author of this sentiment, but I really do prefer it this ^ way.
Now here's the real text:
I don't think you need me to tell you how I created this card. But if you're interested, you can check out the supply list, below.
So, yesterday Sheila got this idea that she HAD to go shopping in Boca Raton. We took I-95 southbound and weren't driving for 10 minutes when we had a flat tire. Scary stuff. Sheila eased the car over to the shoulder, go out, and opened the trunk.
Okay, this next part seems unbelievable but ... she took 2 cardboard men out of her trunk, unfolded them, and stood them at the rear of the car facing oncoming traffic. They looked soooo life-like except that ... they were dressed in trench coats exposing their nude cardboard bodies to oncoming drivers.
To my surprise, cars start slowing down looking at the life-like men. And of course, traffic starts backing up. Everybody is beeping their horns and waving like crazy. We were laffin' hysterically the whole time until ...
A Florida Highway Patrolman pulls up behind the car. He got out and started walking toward us. And ummm, you could tell right away that he wasn't thinking this was funny.
"What's going on here?" he barked.
"My car has a flat tire." Sheila answered.
"Well, what are those obscene cardboard men doing here by the road?" he asked.
Sheila responded, "Hellooooo, those are my emergency flashers!"
