Not you. Unless your screen name is headonthetable. He’s the winner of last week’s $100 prize for best kwip of the week, with the following contribution:

Story:
Hallmark Selling Sympathy Cards for Unemployed

headonthetable:
…and Hallmark is laying off 25,000 workers to increase sales.

We loved it for its combination of irony, anticlimax, and timely corporate cynicism. And when we asked him for a comment on his win, the head said, “To the other Kwipsters I’d like to say that I am surprised with my win and that I’m sure it was only by the narrowest of margins. No joke.” Now that’s one classy head.

Thanks to everyone who participated, and keep an eye out for our next contest. In the meantime, keep kwipping so we can increase the prize.
