X-rated detail on gran’s jumper goes viral
A grandmother who bought a 80c Christmas jumper was left mortified when she discovered it featured a very rude design.
Carolyn Hallam, 53, from Nottingham, in the UK, purchased her festive reindeer outfit from a car boot sale in her hometown and was excited to show it off.
But it wasn't until after she put it on that she realised it featured a set of reindeers who appear to be having sex with each other.
Her daughter, Abigail Hallam, 29, also from Nottingham, shared photos of the charity shop find on social media and it has left people in stitches, with the post racking up more than 2000 likes.
"We love to find bargains at the car boot sales and so mum was extremely pleased to have found a Christmas jumper for 50p in the summer last year," her daughter, Abigail said.
"She picked it up and had a quick look and realised it was a Christmas jumper so she thought it would be okay to wear for work. She put it in her plastic bag and didn't think anything of it till she got home.
"We always go through what we have bought from the car boot and have a proper look once we get home.
"She then tried it on and proudly asked me, 'Do you like my Christmas cardigan?'
"I didn't notice at first and said, 'Ooh yes, it's lovely' then she asked what I thought of the pattern and I burst out laughing!"
Thankfully, Carolyn, who works as a teaching assistant, was able to see the funny side of the situation.
"When mum realised it was actually a rude Christmas jumper, she laughed out loud and thought it was hilarious," Abigail added.
"She was relieved that she saw what was on it before wearing it to work in a primary school! After we realised it was rude she was even more pleased with her bargain."
This year, the mother and daughter will be spending the holidays together alongside Abigail's three children and her partner.
Abigail also hopes sister Alice and her partner can join them on Christmas Day.
As for the Christmas jumper, Carolyn will be opting for a more appropriate work outfit but the naughty reindeer jumper is still her favourite, with the teaching assistant wearing it at any opportunity.
And she's not the only one who likes it, with many people online who commented on the post saying they "love" the funny pattern.
"Took me a minute," commented one person, who was struggling to spot the dirty reindeer scene.
"Omg that's hilarious," added another.
