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.
