I went to the campus bookstore to buy a greeting card--just an ordinary friendly mother-to-daughter card in which to insert a check--but I was disappointed to find that the bookstore has drastically reduced its selection of greeting cards (has electronic communication made greeting cards obsolete?) so that I found nothing even remotely appropriate for the occasion. I did, however, find a birthday card featuring the following charming message: "Happy Birthday. See you in Hell."
Who sends such a card? "Students love that card," said one of the store clerks. "We can't keep it in stock."
I realize that I am hopelessly out of touch, but I really don't understand this at all. Anyone care to explain?
