Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #144 - G is for Gross

Ewwww! This time our challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is G is for Gross.

Now I'm sure Edna was thinking in terms of the "Ewwww" meaning of Gross, but the mathematician in me couldn't resist the fact that gross is also an old term for the number 144. So naturally I had to combine both meanings:

On the outside of the card is the poo emoji, 144 times over. The sentiment is on the inside.


  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...
    Thank goodness for you!!!
    NOW I understand the connection between 144 and gross....I was feeling like a royal dumbass (more so than usual!)
    So thanks for solving the mystery with 144 poops...and yep...that is GROSS
    Fab job sistah!!

  2. Absolutely brilliant -love it -the old terms will be lost in time-someone I know asked for half a dozen breadcakes and the assistant had to ask how many half a dozen was???

  3. You mean only those of us who love math get the double meaning? Maybe it's the Imperial measurement thing, who knows. Regardless, I do love this interpretation of our theme!

  4. I didn't get the math at first either! But look at you, so brilliant to combine both meanings!

  5. Well, I have learned something new today. Fab card. Love Dawn x

  6. I've kept this in my inbox until I could get to it, Jane. I've enjoyed your Christmas and fall cards when I came in the front door and walked back to this post! But this pile of poop card deserves a BRAVO!! It's laugh out loud funny and the recipient will never forget this birthday card from you!! Hugs, Darnell
