13 Mother's Day Cards That Are Actually Funny

Skip the sorry drug store selection and send Mom one of these sweet and giggle-worthy cards.

Finding the right card to send your mom on Mother's Day isn't as easy as it sounds. Though there's no shortage of cards at the grocery store or pharmacy, finding a funny card that's actually funny is never a guarantee. 

Given the expansive inventory of Mother's Day cards on the internet, that's where we've turned to find some comedy gems. From the wry and dry to the pun-derfully silly -- and everything in between that's sweet, heartfelt or even borderline dark -- we've sifted through the best to bring you a list of cards that will surely make Mom chuckle.

Oh, for the record, Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8. 

Remember, you'll need to order these cards early enough so that they arrive to you before signing them and mailing them off (if you won't be seeing your mom in person). Check with the individual seller to make sure the timing will work since sending a late Mother's Day card could get you... grounded.
