A boy who was given cute cat cards to send out to his classmates decided to replace the Christmas messages with ones of his own – and his mum only realized when it was too late.
Remember the days when your parents would buy a pack of 30 identical Christmas cards for you to give to your classmates at school?
After putting a bit of effort into the cards for the people you liked, you were left to scribble the same repetitive message in the other 20 like a Z-list celebrity at the world’s worst book signing.
One cheeky child found a creative way to make the whole ordeal a lot more entertaining, by swapping the usual seasonal greetings with something slightly spicier.
After picking out a set of cards with an adorable grey kitty wearing a Santa hat on the front and a ‘Happy Christmas’ message printed inside, a mum left her seven-year-old son to address them to his school friends.
Once he was done, the cards were sealed and handed out.
When his mum decided to look at one card which hadn’t yet been delivered, she was made to quickly regret not to proofreading the others, as reported by The Sun.
Posting on The Motherload Facebook group, she wrote: “My darling child sent 30 of these out.
“This is the only one I checked. Pray for me.”
The message of ‘Make a wish’ on the front had been scrawled out, as had the drafts of plenty of other replacement messages, simply leaving the word ‘poo’ branded on the hat of the poor innocent cat.
Inside he had written the classic Christmas message of ‘Eat poop on a dish. Love Oliver.’
‘Poo pon’ was also drafted out but didn’t make the final cut.
Other parents saw a kindred spirit for their own children, with one writing: “My son would really get on with yours. Can they be pen pals?”
Another replied: “Crying with laughter at poop on a dish.”
A third said: “I’d get him a fake poop on a plate for Christmas lunch.”
It really is the most wonderful time of the year.
