The Business Cards Of The Rich, Famous, And Infamous

Tyler Durden's picture

Originally posted at Flavorwire,

In today’s climate of cell phone contacts, Facebook and LinkedIn, business cards may be becoming a thing of the past. Then again, they can still say a lot about you. Whether boilerplate or highly designed, staid or comical, FlavorWire has gathered twenty business cards of fascinating and famous people from Abraham Lincoln to Lady Gaga, Einstein to Lady Gaga, and from Houdini's triangular card to Marc Zuckerberg's "I'm CEO, Bitch!"

Mark's VM said, "I'll get back to your punk ass after I get back from yo' mama's house!"

Not very customer-friendly, is he?

AgAu_man's picture

Yes, MZ does seem like a world-class "circle with depth". Or is "...with height"?

My mother has a business card.

It says, Eat Shit and Die.

She bought it at a joke shop.

No kidding.

You gotta be careful who you show your biz card to, might get the wrong kinda attention.  Sometimes it's hip to be square.

He just wants to fit in.

It's like that scene from American psycho but this is real life

Dear Diary,

I lost my ass on Apple again today. WTF! seriously! I hate to admit it but I think there is something wrong here. All the analysts keep pounding the table on this company and I know they are only human, but I almost sense something sinister about the whole thing. I know I know I am letting my emotions get the better of me. The good news is my 401(k) is dollar cost averaging me into the market, and taking emotion out of at least some of my investments.  Well it's off to read barrons and drown my sorrows!

You can burn Stinkin Lincoln's card. That bastard deserved tghe bullet to the head.

First U.S. president to send troops to kill over 1,000,000 Americans. And for what?

Were they a threat to the U.S.? Hell no, they were just fed up with the Federal

Government going too far and over-stepping the bounds of the Constitution.

They had joined the "Union" voluntarily, but when they wanted out because the 

Federal Government was abandoning their mandate, the South was attached at the

behest of the new Emperor; Abraham Lincoln. Why? Because a few wealthy Northern businessmen 

didn't want to lose the excessive profits from the cotton and tobacco trade. Fuck Lincoln and

every president who would see Americans die for the benefit of their wealthy crones.

And I thought it was a war against British Bankers wanting to push massive debt loads onto America.So I take it if Americans took up arms against JPM and GS you wouldn't be joining?

Tsk tsk tsk. <via Metafilter>

Obvious video. (Wait for it, HD deserves it)

More original. (Although wanky slant towards Graphic design)


Does anyone else remembering having to have plastic bound mini-folders to keep them all in? Oh... old style. When I burnt my father's effects, how many cards where there? The detrius of history, pre-the Computer boom.

Of course, the original.



Business cards always struck me as having a note of desperation to them. Only closers get coffee, apparently.

Anything more than name, phone number, and email address is a bit stodgy if ya ask me. 

It's not like anyone really knows where they're going to be when someone pulls out their card.

jballz's picture

Mine just have my name and number and "hung like a stallion"

The rare times I have to use it for business I just explain they are mostly for giving to the ladies. When I give them to the ladies I just tell them it is my official title.

Everyone remembers them. Once I even got laid.

Fuck you zuckeberg!

Zuckerburg what a class act. 

NoDebt's picture

Agreed.  Wondering why he doesn't put a picture of his middle finger on it and the caption "Thanks for the IPO money, now fuck off, assholes."

Anyone interested in investing in FB after seeing that card?
