I'm a member (in good standing) of a smaller stamp club that meets at IHOP once a month or more. Anywho, don't laugh, but IHOP had some pretty decent salads and usually one or more of us would have them for dinner.  This last time almost all of us got a dinner salad, a side salad or something with lettuce in it.

IHOP substituted their lettuce for kale. Yes! All of it! They didn't add kale into the mix, they just outright substituted kale for lettuce. Kale has such a distinct flavor by itself, and they didn't cut the stems off.

We all would shovel a forkful of kale into our mouths and chew and chew and chew. Every time we looked up someone had stems hanging out of their mouth, so I made it a point to say "Mmmmm! Kale!" every few minutes.

When we checked out we mentioned our dissatisfaction with all that kale. The waitress said, Oh, I know! That's from the Home Office. I said to them, 'What?! Are our customers llamas?!'" And thus, this card was born.

that story is too funny and i hope each person in your card club received one of these cards. oh my word. i can't imagine eating a full on kale salad. it's hard stuff for me to enjoy and i love salads and leafy greens, just not so much kale. LOVE the fun of this card.
