Worst Christmas Card Joke

I love reading through Christmas card letters. It is interesting to see how people try to put an original spin on a completely unoriginal tradition of arbitrary updates and pictures. Anyway, we received one this year that had something in it that made my jaw drop. First, a little background information. The person who sent the letter was dealing with an ailment and had to have surgery to fix it. They wrote that this ailment is "a genetic thing inherited by northern Europeans." They followed this with, "Here I thought the Germans were the superior race."

What to take away from this?

Nothing quite says, "Now here is a great opportunity to make a joke about Aryan superiority," like a Christmas card.
