What do you think of this card, intended for a 13yo birthday girl?

I think it's in bad taste, and makes my skin crawl.

It looks like a spoof. Is it real?

(And isn't it Arnold Barton? What's the Hallmark connection?)

If you bother to look into it' from 1990s and by an artist that worked at another company, that was bought by hallmark, the card was discontinued immediately.

I would never give that to a child... a 13 year old is still a child, right?!

That is pretty off, everything from the first sentence to the last.

I'd never sign my name to something like that.

That is wrong in so many ways. I hope it has been taken off the shelves.

What an ugly and inappropriate card!

#21 hamire

Posted 21 December 2012 - 08:51 PM

I think it's really innappropriate.....

But I could see that 13yr old girls may find it funny and buy it for each other.

I do believe this card has been discontinued, but a friend of mine has used these exact words to make her own card for her 12yo daughter. When I asked her where she got the bizarre description from, she showed me the link to this image.

I wanted to ask her why on earth she would give this to her 12yo, but I didn't feel like arguing with the dense headed.

Yep, gross. Hence why there is still on on a shelf on a store 15 years after it went out of print.
