The offending card

Daily Telegraph

At Wait, Wait we have super radar for stories involving redheads and double super radar for stories referring to redheads as "gingers." And so naturally we loved the story about British supermarket chain Tesco removing this Christmas card from shelves after shoppers complained about it being offensive. Lucky for Tesco, it won't be a complete waste, since we're buying up ALL the rejected cards and sending them to senior producer Mike Danforth for Christmas.
