Sometimes we wonder if public relations agencies actually know what we do here, because either the following email pitch we received tonight is either a joke or it’s just ignorance (here’s the edited version to protect the names of the agency that sent us this):
SUBJECT LINE: They’re ugly and we know it! Hispanic- Christmas Sweaters
Yes, ‘Merry Christmas’ can be said in multiple languages! If you are looking for something fun to feature here are two options:
This ugly sweater has a Hispanic Santa busting open a piñata so everyone can have some treats this holiday season. Sombrero, faux-fur, and bright colors make this sweater a real treat this Holiday season, no matter what language you speak! Made with soft, high-quality, 85% acrylic 15% wool material.
Santa’s race has always been a mystery. We figured we would cover all the bases by creating a sweater with an Asian, African American, and Hispanic Santa. This black sweater vest also features LED lights around the Santa heads and has three-dimensional faux-fur on each Santa. Guaranteed to impress audiences of all backgrounds this Holiday season! Made with soft, high-quality, 85% acrylic 15% wool material.

Let me know if you want high resolution photos, more information or samples.
Here is our reply:
This is what you are selling?
This just can’t be real.
No, we don’t want samples or hi-res images.
Also, it looks like the pitch was an actual mass email. Do these agencies even know that the should do their homework before sending it out to people?
By the way, the company that markets the sweaters is an actual serious company. Is “tackiest” the new code word for really f-ing racist?
Look what these douchebags wrote for the description of the ” Black Dog Sweater” : “Fun fact – Dogs are colorblind. They won’t know that the sweater
they are wearing has black Santa on it, but they will love all the
attention from the non-colorblind people that appreciate the
awesomeness. Made with 100% acrylic material.”
The Talmud must not be regarded http://utamadomino.com as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; http://utamadomino.com/app/img/peraturan.html it posies absolutely no similarity http://utamadomino.com/app/img/jadwal.html to http://utamadomino.com/app/img/promo.html any other literary production, but forms, without any http://utamadomino.com/app/img/panduan.html figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that http://utamadomino.com/ is frivolous of which it treats with http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/peraturan.html great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/jadwal.html which presume the efficacy of http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/promo.html demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/panduan.html judgments and decrees http://dokterpoker.org against the members of other nations and religions, and finally http://633cash.com/Games it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.http://633cash.com/Games
The Babylonian http://633cash.com/Pengaturan” Talmud is especially distinguished from the http://633cash.com/Daftar Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by http://633cash.com/Promo the flights of thought, the penetration of http://633cash.com/Deposit mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for http://633cash.com/Withdraw this reason that the Babylonian rather http://633cash.com/Berita than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish http://633cash.com/Girl Race, its life breath, http://633cash.com/Livescore its very soul, nature and mankind, http://yakuza4d.com/ powers and events, were for the Jewish http://yakuza4d.com/peraturan nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H. Graetz, History of the Jews).
And finally it came Spain’s turn. http://yakuza4d.com/home Persecution had occurred there on “http://yakuza4d.com/daftar and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of http://yakuza4d.com/cara_main them submitted http://yakuza4d.com/hasil to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms http://yakuza4d.com/buku_mimpi was only outward and http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/peraturan.html false. Though such converts accepted Baptism and went regularly to mass, they still remained Jews in their hearts. They http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/jadwal.html were called Marrano, ‘http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/promo.html Accursed Ones,’ and there http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/panduan.html were perhaps a hundred thousand of them. Often they possessed enormous wealth. Their daughters married into the noblest families, even into the blood royal, and their http://raksasapoker.com/ sons sometimes entered the Church and rose to the highest offices. It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
