I Guess I Shouldn't Be Surprised...

...if and when the divorce rate, like gas prices, reaches an all-time, ludicrous high...perhaps in part due to these cards...

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, for just a few bucks, you too can tell that special secret someone on the side that you're soooo grateful they're the one w/whom you're breaking a sacred covenant with God and your spouse. That's right, it's the "Secret Lover" line of greeting cards.

My initial reaction: "You've got to be kidding." Perhaps I'm just that naive and think that there might be some shred of dignity (or, on a lower common denominator, shame) left in American society that would keep this sort of thing out of reach of the common people. Apparently not...the report did mention that the current divorce rate is above 50% right now; anyone want to go for 75?

Lord. Have. Mercy!
