New “Financial Crisis Christmas Cards”

Order of St. Nick has released its first set of “financial crisis Christmas cards” for the 2008 holiday season.

Topics that the cards make light of include the subprime mortgage crisis, high gas prices, unemployment, vanishing 401k, and health insurance woes. The paper greeting cards feature vintage photos from the Great Depression, enhanced with humorous verse such as “Have a Great Depression and a Subprime New Year” and “Obama’s new health care plan rocks! I only wish I still had that kidney I sold to pay my heating bill”.

Eight different designs are available exclusively online at www.depressingtimes.com. Consumers can buy the cards individually for $3.99 or in boxed sets of 10 for $18.99.

All Partisan Merchandise Pulled Amid "Dangerous Political Climate"

From the Order's Press Release Dated October 12, 2008:

Online e-tailer Order of St. Nick (www.orderofstnick.com) has pulled its entire lines of popular partisan greeting cards and t-shirts amid concerns over a "dangerous political climate" brewing amongst both Republican and Democratic supporters in the days leading up to the election.

"At recent McCain and Palin rallies, fervent supporters of the Republican ticket have called Senator Obama a terrorist and shouted death threats," Order of St. Nick owner and creative designer Andrew Shaffer says. "Partisanship has taken a dramatic and ugly turn in the past few weeks. Both parties seem to be stoking the flames of hatred within their parties. Pulling all anti-McCain and anti-Palin merchandise from our online store at this time is not the best financial move--it's simply the right move."

Order of St. Nick has removed its entire line of liberal election greeting cards and t-shirts, including the popular "McCain is an Evil Space Slug" shirt. "We can't take the risk that rallying Democrats will begin seditious attacks on John McCain's alien lineage. To set the record straight, McCain is NOT a space slug from outer space. He is a human being born of this Earth," Shaffer says, adding, "We apologize for any confusion that the shirts in circulation may cause for the candidate."

One humorous greeting card poking fun at the current president will remain on sale, however. "Both campaigns, and the majority of the American people, are trying to distance themselves from George W. Bush. Merchandise poking fun at Bush is practically bipartisan these days," Shaffer says.
