It's all about elegance.

Got some checks from the printers that service my bank today and they had a little flyer tucked in showing new offerings in checkwriting.

First off it seems counterproductive to do this; you just GOT checks, you're not gonna say "Oh god, I could have Latin Landscapes, what the hell was I thinking!" and just throw them in the shredder and ask for more. (Well, I'm not, anyway.)

And some of the choices are just . . .

It's page after page of "elegant." "FREE elegant lettering." Checks with American scenes. Checks with dolphins, with cats, with dogs, with babies, with Snoopy . . . elegant racetracks, elegant angels, even. . .

and then I turned the page.

You can do your banking with that fine financial professional Mr. Potato Head.


Yeah, I couldn't believe it either.

I'm sure it says a lot about someone who pays their bills with Mr. Potato Head; I'm not exactly sure what.

No thanks. I'm holding out for "My Little Pony."

You are in luck!!! Not only can you order "My Little Pony" checks, you can get matching labels, address cards AND a check book wallet cover!! Hasbro™ 2004

Of course, you may be wishing for the classic "Pony" of your youth.

Actually the classic pony of my youth was "My Friend Flicka." Which no doubt dates me back to the Stone Age. Which makes me wonder: Can you get the Flintstones on your checks?
