Parties are fun. Great parties are filled with laughter; they're memory-makers. So it stands to reason that party invitations should be funny. The best funny invitation cards infuse text and visuals to form a cohesive statement. In many cases, one will not work without the other – but together, they can elicit a laugh, chuckle, guffaw, or at least a mental smirk from even the most humorless folks.
This is evidenced in the following examples, which represent my top 5 funny invitation cards. What are yours?
This is a funny invitation card for Thanksgiving that depicts a turkey and a sign proclaiming that we should “eat pork.” Classic edible animal diversion strategy, but I think it would be more effective with a bacon visual.
A cheery wedding invitation card that tugs on the heartstrings is difficult. I suppose the wittiest groom could contend that the words “game over” refer to the fact that they're no longer playing games – they're officially committing their love to their brides. But that's not what I think the designer of this funny invitation card had in mind.

Sometimes, designs and text can stand on their own. Sure, this funny Halloween invitation card has a lot of text on it, but the image itself is what strikes the funny bone. If it were only the image, just about anyone would be compelled to open the invitation to see what's inside.
