They're the internet parody equivalent of the physical cards you can buy in stores that feature all sorts of characters from popular movies, TV shows, music, cartoons, and more. They all have similar qualities, ranging from rectangular colored backgrounds and comic sans font, to poorly Photoshopped images and terrible puns or pick-up lines.

Take a look at some of the best ones below that have been shared and reblogged thousands of times on Tumblr.
