More Christmas Stuff

Ok, as you might know, one of my pet peeves is to find disconnected letters when people try to write Arabic – tattoos, in movies, or now on pullovers. This is the picture I found on CafePress when I was looking for some Christmas-related merchandise:

What they were trying to write is عيد ملاد , but they ended up with writing each letter disconnected in its isolated form: ع ي د م ل ا د

To be fair, we should give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that it was probably the software program they used to create the pullover design that messed up.
