CES is one of the biggest tech events of the year. It’s when everyone convinces you that you need to buy a terrifying robot Einstein for some reason.

But Nick Offerman aka Ron Swanson and American Greetings — yeah, the greeting card company — trolled all of them.

Promising “a device like none other,” Offerman and America Greetings delivered just that. Offerman took to the stage to present… a regular greeting card that looks like:

Offerman, who was there to present the product had this to say:

"When I started dating my wife — her name is Megan Mullally, she's a very beautiful actress and singer and goddess — she and I loved giving each other cards," he told a crowd at the press event. "It's a very important part of our relationship, and so we've continued that practice.

"Even though there are times when it's more appropriate, of course, to send a text or an email ... when you really want to get a sentiment across, there's nothing like the artifact of the handwritten card.

D'awwww... now go buy one for you mother or something.

Oddly Specific Twitter Troll About Boiled Eggs Is A Flashback From The '90s

Twitter user Marina Ayano K brought back some serious (and very specific) '90s nostalgia when she tweeted about that little roller ball-thing found in computer mice that we were all fascinated by as kids. She then proceeded to troll her younger followers by claiming that that little ball was actually made out of the yolk of a hard-boiled egg, and that we had to prepare said yolk in order to use the mouse. Lo and behold, some people actually bought it, and the resulting tweets are priceless.

As a modern day, technologically enlightened society it's fair to say we're in the throes of day-to-day, life-changing breakthroughs. Seriously. We're a few leaps away from having iPhones that pretty much 'do' our lives for us, and Google's fast at work on a vaguely terrifying, though heart-stoppin' impressive humanoid robot that'll likely lead the Robo-Revolution to overthrow the human race in like a decade or something.


So, unless you just poked your head out from underneath a rock, you're probably aware drones are very much a part of our lives--one might go so far as to say a staple of any government with the resources to snag a few. Well, pizza lovers rejoice because this ingenious viral marketing video might yet inspire a totally sane and reasonable use for drones--pizza delivery! Granted, jobs would be lost; but hey at least every time you went to order up a cheesy grease wheel from the nearest available drone you'd pretty much be in Minority Report.
