Welcome to The Postcard
Project, home of the Internet's greatest prank ever successfully pulled
off (again and again!).
The Postcards for Mom
Project started in November of 2003 after inspiration from the
Chimpanzee song by
The Barenaked Ladies. (I hear you can illegally download that
song from places such as Kazaa, but I wouldn't know personally...)
After hearing the song, I had an idea, and I knew just the victim... My
Poor Mom. Her kids
could have been fine, upstanding citizens. But instead, she got
my brother. She could
have done so much better...
After seven months and
thousands of pieces of mail later, The St. Louis Post Dispatch caught wind
of the project, and it made the front page of the Mother's Day issue. When your picture
is on the front page of the newspaper, its pretty hard to ignore.
Such was the case with my Mom. She saw the paper.
The problem with a prank
is, that once it is discovered, well, its usually over - but
not in this case. The Postcard Project has the unique ability of
starting over and over again, each time a new victim, a new Mom,
and new fun. We
have now gone through six victims, and are looking for another. I hope you'd
like to join the fun.
The links to the site are
along the bottom there. Click around, get mad, get happy, laugh,
cry, and of course, send something to our current victim!
Lastly, want to keep in the
loop and be
assaulted reminded each month to send mom
something? Good. I created a mailing list. I'll send
only one message per month so watch for it in between the
