Some of the more devout members of my family and circle of friends (a tiny but nonetheless existent structure) flipped me a fair amount of shit over the Christmas card I sent out last year. Apparently they found it irreverent, grotesque, coarse, disgusting, smug, condescending, contemptful, mean-spirited, and disrespectful.
That was the point, but I guess it went over most of their heads. What are you gonna do? So this year I decided to take another stab at it. Heaven forbid I offend the tender sensibilities of anyone on my Christmas card list, so I went with something a bit more earnest, reverent, and in the traditional Christian spirit of the season.
