I spent $2.95 on this joke. If you enjoy it, please reimburse me in my comment box (but NOT today because it's the sabbath).
Okay, I was in the BYU-H bookstore the other day when this greeting card caught my eye:
You can imagine my curiosity mingled with disgust. Of course I had to peek inside.
Oh, phew! Powerful Missionary Spirit. hardy har har. Nice play on acronym. The go give em' Heaven part is kinda cute, anyway.
I couldn't find the companion cards anywhere. I thought they might come in a set: Brothers got PMS, Bishops got PMS, Mission Presidents got PMS, Apostles got PMS, Prophets got PMS.
I was trying to think of who you would send this card to. What if you were a sister missionary and you really did have PMS one day and then you got this card in the mail?
Would you laugh or cry?
Maybe it would be fun to gave it to your companion as a not to be rude but subliminal message that you think she's cranky and irritable and unreasonable and you're sick to death of standing around the visitors center with her 24/7. But then, after the initial sting, you could say, JUST KIDDING (stop crying) I think you have POWERFUL MISSIONARY SPIRIT.
If only they carried one that says Relief Society Presidents got PMS I would have bought it and sent it to myself. (Or sent it to Annie's RS President).
But if they really want to tap the market they should mass produce a greeting card that says Elders got PMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that's funny.
I would have bought a whole hallmark store of those and sent one to every missionary on the planet. (Along with a box of caramacs to soften the blow.)
