Lab Rat Retirement Card

Most months I try my hand at designing a greeting card for Hallmark Cards’ monthly contest.  This month one of the categories is a retirement card.

One idea I had for it was a scene where an old lab rat was retiring.  Well, what’s the traditional retirement gift?  A gold watch, of course.  So, the younger rats are giving the older one a gold watch.

I finished the illustration and I’m happy with it.  But I’m having trouble coming up with the line.  This is what I have:

On the front:  Bob receives his retirement gift.

On the inside:  Hope yours is a better fit.  Congratulations!

I think these lines are okay, but not great.  Anybody want to help me make this funnier?   Just leave a comment below.
