The greeting card mega power Hallmark is looking for a certain card made for a little girls 13th birthday that they have promised to remove from all stores once they track down where they all are.
The inappropriate card makes indications that if the young girl celebrating her birthday jumping from tween to teen would get nicer presents if she had a boyfriend; which she would have if she had larger breasts.
The card reads, “You’re 13 today! If you had a rich boyfriend, he’d give you diamonds and rubies. Well, maybe next year you will – when you’ve bigger boobies!”
The card was originally created by a company called Creative Publishing when Hallmark bought in 1998. David Dean the managing director of Hambledon Studios a subsidiary of Hallmark said the discovery of the card was a shock to them.
“We are as surprised and horrified as anyone else to have discovered that there are still copies in circulation,” he told The Guardian. “The card has not been produced for 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.”
Twitter was all the buzz about the card yesterday.
