Help! What are some funny things I could write on the post cards I'm sending to family and friends while I'm in port??

I saw one in a thread that I thought was cute:

"We're drinking here, wish you were beer!"


Any other suggestions?

- Thanks!

"The weather is here, wish you were beautiful
The skies are too clear, lifes so easy today
The beer is too cold, the daiquiris too fruitiful
No place like home when you're this far away!"

When we were in Grand Cayman, we stopped in the town of "HELL". I almost missed our bus, because I was writing "Postcards from Hell"! I wrote "I'm in Hell. Wish you were here!" It was a blast, and everyone at home loved them!

We visited Hell today, and it was freezing cold. So we were wondering,
did the Cubs win the World Series?

I'm on my way to Hell, they say it's the bomb, so try and have a good time while you're at home in heaven!

To err, is human.
To sea, is the place for me !!

Nope, if hell froze over the Vikings would've won the Super Bowl (or should I say make it to the Super Bowl)

If you have time, make some labels for your post cards.

Go to Hell , you have to go there and send your cards.

If you are sending postcards to coworkers and you want to really stick it to them, you could gush and gush about the wonderful time you are having, or you could do the opposite and whine and tell them you wish you had never come on this cruise and how much you miss work, etc! Really rub it in to them!

I've sent the following (keep in mind, I am a real estate broker...so my humor may not be useful to you):

On a postcard from the Bahamas:

It's all about location, location, location!

On a postcard from the ship:

I've found the perfect piece of real estate, an ocean view from every window, no noisy neighbors, no barking dogs, and there's no way that kid with the loud radio in the car will be heard from here!

Not really that funny, but had to share!

That was such an awesome game! No surprise the Vikings lost. Their quarterback was absolutely terrible! I couldn't believe the mistakes he made. He was very funny to watch though! I don't know how he ever became a quarterback, but I bet that will be his last game as one.. at least for a while.
