    If this were a card sold at Spencer's then it would be hilarious (it is funny don't get me wrong), but Hallmark should know better than that.

    I think the card is gross. I can see how a card for a 13 year old could POSSIBLY make a cute joke about wishing for bigger boobies, but this is just crass. Not only because of the "maybe if you get some tits you'll get a boyfriend" message, but the message that maybe next when year she's 14 (!) she'll get a rich boyfriend who will get her jewelry? The message of the card is fucked on like, three different levels.

    It's also such a sensitive age that I can't imagine a 13 year old girl who got that card feeling good about it. At that age, I would've been mortified that anyone was drawing attention to my tits, not matter if it was "funny" or not. Then you also have the "haha you don't have a boyfriend!" joke on top of it which again = awesome for a young teen girl to hear. Anyone who would give it to a real girl is a dick IMO.

    ^ I agree with every word. Where the heck did women's lib go? I think it's time these new girls were reminded that it's not supposed to be about sex to get material possessions.
