Christmas is supposed to make people feel nice and fuzzy inside with warm holiday greeting messages and it probably does, except for the satirical and bitter holiday haters.

Despite the fact that Christmas may never come, considering it's four days after the supposed Mayan apocalypse, website Warm Wishes From Ad Land gets into the Grinch mood with some very profane but cynical jokes filled with sarcasm and spite. The site pairs beautiful festive rotating wallpapers with splashed text that reflects what the grumpy monotone voice is saying. Despite some of the illicit and uncomfortably blunt comments, the New York-based site transforms the anonymous posts left on certain advertising blogs and cleverly integrates them into holiday greeting messages fit for any Scrooge.
