Humor is an excellent ice-breaker, as long as it’s used appropriately. (You all KNOW better than to tell a political, religious, or sexual joke if you’re not absolutely sure it will be welcome … right?)

The following are samples of actual signs that I found on several different “joke lists.” While they’re funny in and of themselves, read them with an eye to using them ON a business card. You could also SAY a funny line like this as you give out your card.

  • Sign at truck stop café reads: Eat here diet home.
  • On the side of a plumber’s van: A straight flush is better than a full house.
  • In a dentist office: Be true to your teeth or they will be false to you.
