I love the internet.

June 2009, I posted a picture of a congratulations card I found at Hallmark that I found very, very funny. Several of you agreed that the “Paco” card was hysterical and we had a good laugh together.

And here is another Paco card for your viewing pleasure (click to view larger).

Well, last week, someone new discovered the post… and the new person just happens to know Paco (aka Richie Gaona) personally. I was delighted, and responded.

What followed was a very entertaining flow of comments, (read them here) from people who all know Paco/Richie… who happens to be a real life trapeze artist. Even Paco himself has left a comment! (Yes, I can hear your collective gasp)

Visit his site to learn about him – and see videos of him, Mercedes and others flying through the air.

Brandon/Jennifer – maybe when you come back to the US this fall you should make a stop in Southern California and take in a flying class!

Can’t we start a campaign for Hallmark to do lots more “Paco” cards? ? ? Didn’t someone get on Dancing With the Stars because of an email campaign? Let’s see how far Paco can go ! WE LOVE PACO ! ! !

OMG- This is so fantastic! We need more Paco cards- or maybe some accompanying books? I can’t believe this website is about the card- hilarious! Richie you have your own Paco fanpage now? Too funny.


Chris on July 14th, 2010 at 5:20 pm

He needs to start his own line of trapeze wear. This is an amazing story and I’m so glad he found his way here!!

PACO TELL ME WHERE I CAN PURCHASE YOUR GREEETING CARDS. I HAVE SEARCHED AND SEARCHED. I SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH YOU WHEN YOU ASKED ME. THEN THE SEARCH WOULD BE OVER.
