“This is the photo my Grandmother sent out as her Xmas card in the early 70s. She didn’t like my Dad’s not-smiling face so she cut out one from a different picture, pasted it in place and sent it to the printers. Note the glue on my dad’s face where grandma had attempted to affix the smiling face before it shifted during printing completely unintentionally. Still one of the funniest things ever (still) sent to more than 200 friends and family.”

    This photo made me laugh so hard I had tears in my eyes. Every time I look at it I wheeze with laughter!

    This is perfect. Exactly what my Gram would have done. “I paid good money and Im still sending it out” This could not be funnier.

    Ive lost track of a pic of my elderly Aunt I would have sent in if I still had it. Christmas morning she received a silver creamer and sugar set. The pic shows her squinting at the botton of the creamer looking to see if its real silver, It was silverplate and pic caught her disgusted look at finding its not Sterling!

    Oh my, this one gets my vote! The fact that grandma didn’t just trim the side of the photo off but instead shipped it out with an extra floating head (with a nice smile, admittedly) is just hilarious!

    The photo really wasn’t that bad to begin with but now it is AWESOME!

    I would have asked for additional copies.
