What card should the Queen of Hearts be in a deck of cards?

This comes via Reddit’s r/crappydesign, the Comic Sans-loving subreddit devoted to horrifying style and engineering choices. User PingPongPresident found that “in the Disney Villains deck of playing cards, the Queen of Hearts is the three of Clubs.” Just, why?

All ways here you see, are the Three of Clubs’ way!

Black Friday Alice Designs at TeeFury

Attention Shoppers!  TeeFury is offering two new Alice-themed designs:

One is a T-shirt that the site declares will only be available today, Black Friday, and never again after that. So if you like the design of Alice and the Cheshire Cat, you’ll need to buy it today.

Tee Fury Murase Alice

They have also added a Disney-esque design to their “ugly sweaters” sweatshirt gallery. These are designs made to look as if they have been knitted, while in fact they are printed on the sweatshirts. So if you’re looking for an Alice-themed sweatshirt (or gift) with a homespun look, check out this item. This design will be available beyond today, unlike the T-shirt above.  Both items offer a selection of sizes and colors, so choose carefully.

Tee Fury Knitted Alice

The site is also offering a 20% off Black Friday sale code, effective only through 11/29, and NOT applicable to the daily T-shirt design (like the one today for Alice). But it should apply to the sweatshirt and anything else on their site.  The code is TFBF20.

Happy Shopping, Carrollians! And if you come across any other neat items, please let us know in the comments below.
