16. It's a glass of wine. The legal drinking age is 21.
Edited on Fri Apr-11-08 08:02 PM by BattyDem
How exactly does it promote TEEN sex? :shrug:

I know teens drink, but so do adults. Why would someone see that card and automatically think of teen sex? Does Hallmark do a lot of business among teens? Most teens I know send "e-cards" not Hallmark cards.
