Christmas mammaries

The award for the least politically correct Christmas card goes to entertainment specialist David Wineman. Modesty prevents Tulkinghorn from publishing said item, but suffice it to say that the missive featured two attractive – and undeniably bare-breasted – ladies frolicking in the snow.
