Dear Carlton Cards,

Thank you for making such a variety of those musical greeting cards -- the type you open up and it plays an appropriate tune. They are very entertaining.

Which brings us to the point of this letter. I browsed thru a dozen or so musical Saint Patrick's Day cards this week. One of them was very colorful and said "Get Your Irish On!" When it opened up a lively tune with bagpipes started to play. Imagine my surprise when I realized the song was actually "Scotland the Brave" the unofficial Scottish national anthem.

Perhaps in the future you may want to check on the appropriateness of the tune before putting it in a card?

This did give me an opportunity to buy the card to give to my Scottish friend who really, really HATES St. Patrick's Day. He should get a kick out of it (before he stomps it to pieces -- those Scots can be emotional).



P.S.(ObJoke) Here is a link to a fun video of folk duo The Corries playing their parody of Scotland the Brave. You may have to turn up the volume and be careful about playing it at work (as there's the obligatory mention of things under a kilt).
