Hallmark writers are staying off welfare this Christmas by writing cards bearing recession-ized slogans like "This wasn't the year that any of us had hoped for." GEE THANKS. I think we can do better than that.
Actual caption of a Hallmark "difficult times" Xmas card, via the WSJ:
We can say it: this wasn't the year that any of us had hoped for. There are some kinds of loss that touch a whole family, and we've all felt it this year.
Jesus, it's Christmas time, you commies. How about looking on the bright side?
