WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THE PEOPLE WHO MADE THIS?!?!?!

I agree it is horrible, I just think if it were real and widely available you would have seen more of these. I don't know anyone who would look at this on the shelf and not say something.

Maybe I am just too jaded, but this just seems like one of those tricks....

Did you go to the link, Buck? It is apparent that you did not. Fact-free comments are your specialty.

We know that some people have expressed concerns about a card, branded Arnold Barton, Co., sold recently in the United Kingdom. The message below is from Hallmark UK:

"This card was printed over 15 years ago by Arnold Barton before Hallmark UK acquired that brand. This card has not been reproduced since and we are surprised that a copy was still available for purchase in a retail store. We agree the card is not appropriate; we apologize on behalf of Arnold Barton and will do our best to track down any copies remaining in circulation."

UPDATE 2 p.m. 12/7/2012

Following is an updated message from David Dean, managing director of Hambledon Studios, a subsidiary of Hallmark UK:

"This card was produced by Creative Publishing prior to Hallmark Cards acquiring the company in 1998. We are as surprised and horrified as anyone else to have discovered that there are still copies in circulation. The card has not been produced for over 15 years and would never pass our own strict guidelines of taste and appropriateness. We would like to assure all our customers that we will do everything in our power to track down remaining copies."

Who the hell was Arnold Barton and why was he such a dickbag?

But what if your boobies don't grow big?
I guess then you have to do without diamonds and rubies?
Thank goodness that today you can go out and get implants done, then you will finally be a successful gold-digger!

I don't care if that card is 15 years old, the message is still utterly horrible and it was back then too. :(

Then there's this one:

"NAACP calls Hallmark graduation card racist"

Yes, Ted Striker, upding from me also. I saw the UPDATE on the original article and thought, but it was still in circulation at one time, and NOT TOO LONG AGO. I can't give any excuse as to why I didn't update my post.

I appreciate you taking the time to do the research and post.

Reamworks, SKG --Wow, I wouldn't think that card offensive at all. Just goes to show how many different points-of-view there area and how much we need to to continue to educate ourselves.

Thanksk for posting.

Go easy on Buck, everyone. He's just in denial that s*** this sick could actually happen.

As for me, I only skimmed the link. Why? Because if you can't tell whats wrong with this picture without commentary to spell it out for you, then...

I mean, gold-digging and boobies are on a card intended for 13 y/o? Wtf?!

...

Even for sexist-pigs, that is creepier than... I mean, 13 y/o?! From 4-chan inspired "artists" to editors and marketers, this actually got approved by all of... And nobody stopped to ask "what the f***ing f***?! Are you on pcp and Megan's list or something?! Am I now a sex offender just for breathing the same air as you?"

...

...

For 13 y/o? 13? 13?!

...

...

...

At least Hallmark is disavowing that card, saying that it was printed long before they bought the Arnold Barton brand. (which could raise the question of why anyone would want to own that brand in the first place, but I'm fresh out of s***s to give) Plus they're hunting down any other such cards still in circulation. So unless I'm filing a police report about a kid receiving such a creepy card, I'd rather never talk about this again.
