OK Wait For It...

Leaf Live was introduced to the world not long ago with the release of a memorial card for Gene Wilder with very mixed reviews. I did give in and purchased one against better judgement and have not gone back, not that I have a problem with the service I just haven’t seen any of the cards that have been released so far as cards I want to add to my collection.

This week Leaf goes for another memorial card with the release of a Harambe card… go ahead, I’ll wait while you face palm.

Those who do not remember Harambe was a gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo who was killed on May 28th by officials after a monther was an irresponsible parent and expected everyone else at the zoo to keep an eye on her 3-year old because her attention was elsewhere for 10 minutes while her son climbed in to the gorilla’s enclosure.

Now why would they decide to make a card 4 months later, well it appears that someone at Leaf felt that internet memes somehow equate popularity. DOFH does not mean there is a sudden fever pitch and this card should not have seen the light of day.

  3. Someone contact Guiness. That has to be the fastest "jumping the shark" in history.

  4. Does Leaf release their production numbers? I'd be very surprised if a single person picked up this card. It's utter cardfoolery.
