Clintons Cards Apologises For "Why Santa Claus Must Live On A Council Estate" Design

'Tis the season to be jolly and indulge in class snobbery...

Posted on

The 10 reasons it gives are:

1. He has a serial record for breaking and entering!
2. He uses various wild animals to pull his sleigh
3. He only works once a year
4. He's never actually been seen doing any work in his whole life
5. He drinks alcohol during working hours
6. He barely leaves his home for fear of being recognised
7. He wears the same out-of-fashion clothes everyday and never washes them
8. He uses loads of different names and aliases purely for his own gain!
9. He gets letters from lot [sic] of people, all demanding that he owes them things!
10. He can get hold of all the latest designer gear but never pays a penny for it!

Needless to say people were hugely offended by the "jokes".
