Gettin' cards and letters from people I don't even know

Reader-submitted question: Where did you get those David Hasselhoff greeting cards?

I got them from a reader in the States. I believe they are available at Target, and there are several different types you can choose from. You can see photos of the set here.

I know what you are thinking: How could you possibly choose just one? And how could any retailer put a price on ART like this? I could not agree more. That's why I like to use the free e-card service from David Hasselhoff Online. Sometimes I send them to myself, just so I can pretend that I am getting e-mail from David.

However, e-cards are not appropriate for every situation. Sometimes, nothing can replace a card in the mail. For example, after a job interview, you'll want to make sure that the interviewers have a good impression of you. But you'll also want to stand out from the crowd. Anyone could send a hand-written message. If you really want to be sure a potential boss will remember you, send a card with a picture of the Hoff, shirtless, leering through his car window. I guarantee you will make an impression.

Speaking of Cards, thank you Meg! I am very excited about the opportunity to begin my very own philosopher themed amusement park. Your finger puppets are just the thing I needed to get started!

I found those in the bookstore at my alma mater. They had a ton of them: Plato, Sappho, Shakespeare, Freud, pretty much all of the authors we studied in foundation year. I thought of you immediately, and when I saw the one that came with a puppet theatre, I knew I had to buy it.

They are practical, too: you can use them as fridge magnets. Never say philosophy is useless!
