Kinkos refuses to print naked Christmas cardPosted by staff / December 18, 2009
The Cringleys would like to wish everyone a Merry (Naked) Christmas, but the prudes over at FedEx Kinkos want to play Grinch by censoring the family’s strategically-covered Yule logs and holly berries.
Each holiday season, Bob Cringley, his wife and their three boys strip off the ugly bedazzled sweaters that plague so many other family Christmas pictures and go au naturale. Nothing PG-13 rated shows in the saucy snapshot, other than the occasional side boob or mipple (man nipple), but certainly an apron or oven mit slip would spell naked disaster.
FedEx Kinkos wanted no part in spreading nude holiday cheer and refused to print the cards for the second year in a row. Fear not though, Cringley family and friends, a card printing website has offered to print the cards and you can expect Santa-themed nudity to arrive in your mailbox any day now.
Hmm, on one side, in Kinkos defense, if sparing kids from total humiliation requires playing prudish Grinch, then so be it. And, on the other side, is a semi-naked holiday greeting really any worse than the horrible themed outfits our parents stuck us in for family photos back in the 80s?
Would your family consider ho ho ho-ing it up for holiday cards?
Ho! Ho! Ho! Holiday news for good boys and girls.
